Very rarely will a politician have the power to wear an item and sell it out. Theresa May bucked this trend when she wore a chunky silver chain necklace in July 2016 to make her maiden speech as Prime Minister on the steps of 10 Downing Street.
Designed by Amanda Wakeley, the two pieces quickly became unavailable in their native silver and alternative rose gold - and we totally understand why! The statement piece is absolutely striking, and as May has demonstrated, an effortless accessory to wear during the day and at night. Looking great with a higher neckline, the necklace gives definition with an edgy twist.
May wears her chain necklace with a whole host of outfits- elegant shift dresses, a sparkly tweed jacket and a classic monochrome trouser suit. She also teams it up with the matching bracelet, a satisfyingly statement piece to add power to any wrist.
