Chunky necklaces handmade by independent jewellery designers

Discover Pearls & Pomegranates's collection of statement chunky necklaces, from thick chunky chains to sizeable motifs. Our collection of chunky necklaces are curated for their unusual design and statement aesthetic. All of our chunky necklaces are sustainably handcrafted by independent designers and delivered from their hands to yours.

Chunky necklaces are a type of jewellery that typically feature larger and more prominent beads, stones, or other decorative elements. They can add a bold and fashionable statement to any outfit, and can be worn with both casual and formal attire. They work well layered with other necklaces or worn as a standalone piece, and can also be paired with chunky earrings or statement bracelets that complement the style and design of the chunky necklace. An unusual chunky necklace is a statement piece of jewellery that is unique in its design, shape, or materials. It can add an element of interest and personality to any outfit, and is a great way to express your individual style. At Pearls & Pomegranates, we've created a beautiful selection of unusual but statement chunky necklace designs.

How to style your chunky necklace

  • Layer your chunky necklace: Chunky necklaces work well layered with other necklaces of varying lengths and styles. This creates a more dynamic and interesting look and allows you to show off your personal style.
  • Choosing a chunky pendant necklace: When styling a chunky pendant necklace, it's important to consider the length and weight of the pendant, as well as the style of the chain. A chunky pendant can be worn with a variety of outfits, from casual to formal attire, and can be paired with other jewellery pieces to create a layered look.
  • Make a colourful chunky necklace pop: If you want your chunky necklace to be the focal point of your outfit, pair it with a monochromatic colours that complement the colours and details in your necklace. This will make your chunky necklace stand out.
  • Mix and match textures: Experiment with mixing and matching different textures when styling your chunky necklace. For example, pair a chain necklace with a soft and flowing blouse, or a beaded necklace with a structured blazer.
  • Wear it with confidence: Above all, the key to pulling off a chunky necklace is to wear it with confidence! Be bold and show off your unique style, and don't be afraid to experiment with different looks until you find the one that works best for you.

Choosing an unusual chunky necklace

  • Geometric shapes: An unusual chunky necklace made of geometric shapes, such as triangles, circles, or squares, can add a modern and edgy touch to any outfit.
  • Mixed materials: An unusual chunky necklace that combines different materials, such as metal, wood, or leather, can create an interesting contrast and add a bohemian or rustic feel to your look.
  • Oversized pearls: An oversized pearl necklace is a unique and elegant statement piece that can add a touch of sophistication to any outfit.
  • Natural stones: A chunky necklace made of natural stones, such as agate, quartz, or jade, can add a colourful and earthy element to your look.
  • Up-cycled materials: An unusual chunky necklace made of up-cycled materials, such as electronic components can be an eco-friendly and creative way to accessorise.
