Statement necklaces are really trendy this fall. They are also really versatile - wear them for an evening out, with jeans and a plain tee, or even to work with a blouse under a blazer. We love Shy Siren’s selection of gorgeous pendants - there are so many options and you can customize the chain length you want. Here are our favorites:




About Shy Siren: Shy Siren is a collection of jewelry, handbags, and accessories created by two architects-turned-web-designers: Anita Lin and Sara Schwittek. The duo met in 1999 and launched Shy Siren online in 2003. Their pieces have a cool vintage vibe and many are one of a kind. The collection is available online at or on Etsy.

A wild orchid unlike any other: This transfixing ring, hand made by designer Anna Sabino, promises to steal the spotlight every single time. A bold, decadent marriage of purples and pinks, it’s inherently ladylike and captivating at first glance. Wear it to bring a touch of sparkle to just about anything in your closet, whether you’re dressed up or down.
