How To Make A Big — HUGE — Statement With Dainty Jewelry

My jewelry drawer is full of colorful statement necklaces, oversized rings, and chunky bracelets. Yet, all I want to wear are dainty and delicate accessories. One of my best friends and owner of a chic jewelry store is to blame for this – she is always one step ahead of the bauble trends and every time I see her, I swoon over her delicate ornaments.
These barely-there accessories are perfect for layering or can be worn on their own, and their extra small stature won't detract from your outfits. Click through to see my 8 favorite picks of dainty necklaces, rings, and bracelets to help you make a big statement with less.
