One major plus of giving your jewelry box a hefty spring cleaning—you know, besides finding bling that you lost in the 8th grade? Room for a new statement-making necklace! Believe it or not, in a few short months you’ll actually be able to show off your jewelry that is now masked by your puffy (yet completely necessary) jacket and thick knit scarf. It’s a style miracle.

The trend on our minds and wallets? Affordable statement necklaces that add that “something missing” from our simplest outfits. And because not everyone is interested in wearing a diamond-encrusted choker fit for royalty with their plain white tee, we picked a few modern options all priced at under $100.

1. PJ Gemstone and Ribbon Necklace, $68,
This beaded onyx gemstones necklace benefits more than your décolletage. With every purchase of this necklace, designer Katie Bartels donates 100% of the proceeds to the Lustgarten Foundation, a charity organization focuses on advancing research to cure pancreatic cancer.


Major Mix Necklace, $38,
Wear this extravagant collar piece with a crisp white eyelet dress, nude platform sandals, and a curl to your hair!


Tordu Necklace, $85,
This is really Vanessa Hudgens, don’t you think? With black high-waisted shorts, a cropped tailored shell, and a bold lip, this chained necklace will edge out any other accessory.
