Statement Necklaces: The big, bold and beautiful

Emily Ratajkowski echoes a young Gina Lollobrigida in two Bulgari necklaces– an emerald ruby and diamond vintage style layered with a shorter pearl, rubellite and diamond stunner from the High Jewellery collection.

This was the year of the necklace during red carpet awards season. After a year or two of predominantly bare necks, the bold, gutsy diamond and/or gemstone necklaces were back in a variety of styles.  The first two days of the Cannes Film Festival 2017 has proved that this is a trend that continues as the jewel of the moment.
