One place I like to go for ideas is Neiman Marcus. Growing up, I'd start at Neiman's when I shopped at Atlanta's Lenox Mall, decide there which designer looks I liked most, and then go out into the mall and find them at prices I could afford. You can do the same at the Neiman Marcus website. Check out Neiman Marcus's Statement Necklace page to see how premier designers are interpreting the trend.
