    Remember when topping a T-shirt with a rhinestone necklace was the most stylish thing in the world? Or the first time you rocked a chunky knuckle-duster ring and felt like the most badass girl for blocks? Unfortunately, the world's caught up with those styling tricks. At this point, even your mom knows that a statement necklace is the perfect way to "jazz up" jeans and a tee. And, hold up — did she just use the phrase "arm party," too?

    If, like us, you're ready to ratchet up your jewelry game, then it's time to embrace crazy-lady jewels. We're talking big, bold, truly game-changing pieces of epic proportions that take some serious sass to pull off. Think big, blocky, stone rings; gleaming, hammered-gold breastplates; and lucite lobsters studded with Swarovski-cut crystals (no, really). If a demented heiress or a toddler in a costume box would wear it, then it's in. Oh, and lest you think eccentric jewelry is a rich lady's game, rest assured: We've got pieces that start well under $100 in materials ranging from rubber to rubies.

    Ahead, 24 antidotes to anemic jewelry. From Roman-column cuffs and massive bee pendant necklaces to Cartier's iconic jeweled Panthère, the pieces ahead prove that major statement beats subtle hands down, every time.
