Don't try to tell us you've never dreamed of being a pirate and/or finding that big trunk of treasure, á la best-movie-ever The Goonies or Pirates of the Caribbean. In the spirit of those messy, dazzling heaps of jewels, we found 10 necklaces that conjure dreams of pirates' booty and fantastic-sized jewels. And yes, you're a grown-up now, but try these necklaces with a minimal cocktail dress and at the very least you'll inspire that other childhood fantasy of being a princess.
Sandra Bullock's pirate's booty immediately grabbed my attention. I'm talking about her necklace: it's funky, chunky, and looks like it came from hidden loot under the sea. When searching for such adornments, focus on a mix of chains, pearls, charms, and underwater influences. The chunkier, the better. Since it's a statement piece, pair it with a simple yet sassy LBD like Sandra did at The Proposal premiere in LA, or rock it out with a plain tee. Argh — it's mermaid marvelous.
