Just getting into the whole statement neckpiece malarkey? If so, I’ve got a bit of bad news on that front: heavily gem-encrusted frontispieces feel sartorially stale at this point and I’m itching to move onwards.

And upwards, as it so happens. While I haven’t abandoned neckwear entirely, It’s things like heavy brass and leather I’m wearing more and pieces that feel a lot less samey. I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing thrilling at finding a tiny variation of the same thing in every shop, and that always makes me look to something new.

So, earrings: Here are 10 pairs of to-the-jaw-droppers and some celebrity inspiration as well. What do you think, though: are we being harsh on the blingy statement necklace or are you over it as well?
