The Best of... Primark Statement Necklaces

Primark has made me a right old tightwad. I often find myself in Topshop eyeing up a pretty dress, then on further inspection of the price ticket I recoil in horror & refuse point blank to pay £45 for a cotton smock when..."I can get the same thing in Primark for a tenner."


I say that sentence a lot. A heck of a lot. 

I've always liked Primark jewellery. I have necklaces, stack bangles, collar tips and hair accessories from transactions made years ago & they're still serving me well. Admittedly not all of Primarks jewellery is great; there is still plenty of tangled tat and cheap chains on the shop floor but like with most stores, if you rake through the rails long enough you're bound to find something that takes your fancy. My penchant for Primark accessories was affirmed on realising that none of my purchases have ever left my skin green - & unfortunately the same can't be said for my more expensive River Island & Topshop buys!

I wanted a few statement necklaces for those can't-be-bothered days. They're a great way of jazzing up a plain tee or updating a shirt with an elaborate piece poking out from behind the collar. Naturally I headed to Topshop. "TWENTYYYY TWOOO POUNDSSSS!" I explained in sheer horror, calling out to my Mum amongst the accessories in the Oxford Street flagship whilst clutching their chunky neckwear.

"I can get that for much less in Primark..."

And so my challenge begun! Below is a selection of snazzy statement necklaces which I have accumulated from Primark over the past few months, all retailing at under £10. Some generically off the shelf and others from the slightly more High Street comparable prices of their Limited Editions collection. 













Whilst I almost struggled to hand over £10 in Primark for a necklace (Limited Edition or not!) I can confirm the quality, wearability and the fact they have no visible signs of discolouration after wear exceeds, from my experience, any High Street brands offering. 

...It of course helps when it's £12 cheaper too!

Has Primark's affordable fashion made you a miser when it comes to shopping elsewhere? What is your go-to brand for accessories?

  10. You've picked up some lovely statement necklaces, something are lovely and better than those more expensive ones that you find in Topshop and RI. I definitely need to pop into a Pimark soon as I'm on the hunt for some new statement necklaces. xx
