    I love statement pieces, so yes!  I love the necklace in the first picture!!  That shade of blue/green will definitely be gorgeous.

    Oh, I voted maybe.  Because I’d vote no in certain instances just depending on the dress and exact necklace.

    I like the idea, depending on the type of necklace.  I don’t always like statement necklaces..

    Yes!!!! I love statement necklaces and am planning on doing a similar gift for my ladies. My one request when we went dress shopping for them was that they select dresses with plain necklines so it would work.

    The necklaces you’ve posted are gorgeous!  My only concern would be looking back on your pictures in coming years, that style may make them look dated.

    I love wearing statement dresses out and to work, but I would leave them out of my wedding because they are really trendy and could definitely look dated in photos. (I know, I am WAY too self-conscious about that sometimes haha.)

    Personally, I am not a fan of a “bridesmaid’s gift” that is supposed to be worn in your wedding.  Unless you know for a fact that it is something every one of your girls would enjoy and wear on their own, then it is really just a gift for yourself.

    I think a BM gift should be meaningful and personal for your BM’s and not something that would be worn in your wedding.

    ETA: I think I worded that a little harsher than I intended.  If you think it is a gift that your girls would all wear outside of the wedding then it is a lovely gift.

    I LOVE statement necklaces and love how they look on bridesmaids. I was considering something more subtle like pearl clusters or something like this:

    But I know some of my bridesmaids are more simple in their fashion choices so I nixed the idea.  Just something to consider.  For me, I definitely wanted to get my girls jewelry that they, hopefully, would want to wear again.  If your bridesmaids are all for statement necklaces, then definitely go for it 🙂  I love gold with purple!

    I love the necklace you posted, and I also love the ivory and gold statement necklace in your inspiration picture.

    Your bridesmaids dresses are gorgeous, and your bridesmaids easily could wear a statement necklace with that beautiful, sweetheart neckline.

    However, I have to say that I really DISlike all of the other inspiration pics showing the maids carrying bouquets and wearing necklaces that conflict with or compete with the necklines of their dresses or their bouquets and the necklaces (such as the longer, multi-strand ones) that would draw far too much attention to themselves.

    ETA: Arabesque, I love the more subtle look that you posted!
