The statement necklace is an excellent way to add some pizazz to your next black tie event


Pink chain necklace available at Willa Collection

Pink was one of the hottest trends at the Golden Globes this past Sunday: Emily Blunt, Nicole Kidman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Diane Kruger (to name a few) all dazzled in dresses in varying shades of pink. The timing could not be more perfect for those preparing to attend the Pink! Gala here in Chattanooga.

Pink! Gala is an annual fundraiser hosted by the Memorial Health Care System to benefit the MaryEllen Locher Foundation, a foundation that helps families impacted by breast cancer. The benefit begins at 6:30 PM at the Convention Center on Saturday, January 30, 2010. The dress is black tie with a hint of pink.

This is the first in a series of articles about inspirations for the evening. Today, the focus is accessories. Meg Jacobs of Willa Collection in Chattanooga, TN, finds the chain pink necklace from Lee Angel to be an exceptional piece of costume jewelry perfect for the Pink! Gala. The necklace is a statement necklace, another popular trend as evidenced by its use in this year's biggest fashion shows.

The gold chain necklace with bold beads in varying shades of pink in different shapes and sizes is completed by a large crystal-encrusted brooch on the left side which makes this statement piece the perfect complement to a black dress, for those going for the hint of pink, or a hot pink dress, for those intending to go all out.

Because this necklace is a statement necklace, the designer is as important as the look. The chain necklace is designed by Roxanne Assoulin for Lee Angel, a line created by Assoulin who has been creating jewelry for eighteen years. Based in SoHo, Assoulin is at the heart of fashion. Her designs have been featured in several major magazines and have adorned the runways of many top designers.

Statement necklaces are all the rage and many times they are one-of-a-kind. They may be just the piece you are looking for to complete the perfect outfit for the Pink! Gala and to help you stand out from the crowd. Check out other retailers like Amanda Pinson Jewelry, Fisher Evans Jewelry, Matisoff's Fine Jewelry to name a few of the jewelry boutiques around the area for pieces that are sure to impress.
