With each of my children just a few years apart, we have been on the prom merry-go-round since about 2008. From chauffeured limos to dramatic up-dos, French manicures to Pinterest-worthy boutonnieres, extravagant “promposals” to exhausting after parties, I think we have done it all.
For my girls, finding “the dress” has always been difficult. But, finding the perfect accessories can prove almost impossible (I once spent several weeks visiting every local bridal shop, special occasion dress store, and even Kohls looking for a crystal necklace in just the right shade of teal for a weepy 17 year old).
This year, thank goodness, we have the accessories covered. This gorgeous rhinestone collar by IDGIRL is the perfect accent for my daughter’s simple, off white chiffon gown. The necklace was actually inspired by trends arising at Paris Fashion Week from top designers such as Givenchy!
The collar style is uniquely flattering. According to Harper’s BAZAAR, “Hitting somewhere below a choker necklace and above the décolletage, the collarbone necklace demands attention, and offers face-framing flattery all at once.”
Perfect for those prom photos!
The rhinestones in this piece are large and absolutely brilliant. They catch the light and reflect it beautifully. And, I love that the rhinestones are set in yellow gold tone. The yellow gold trend shows no sign of abating, and it looks so fresh and new after years of wearing nothing but silver.
But, the best part is the price. Just $19.99 on Amazon Prime! Having spent many years as a pageant coach, I can attest that this is a bargain price for a rhinestone piece like this. In fact, this necklace would make an outstanding stage piece, since it is quite large and dramatic.
If clear rhinestones are not the look you need to enhance your prom dress, IDGIRL has a huge range of other options in clear and color, as well. A few of my personal faves include the Crimson Crystal Maxi Collar Statement Necklace, the Colorful Statement Earrings, and the Full Rhinestone Filigree Flower Pendant.
