Ball Jewelry (did that sound dirty?)

I have my ball gown, it's a Strapless Burgundy dress, I'll post the stock picture, it ties in the front OR back I'm going with a back tie on it. The dress is pretty simple so I want a statement necklace to go with it.

So I have the gown, I have the shoes, now I'm looking for jewelry (necklace & earrings).

I found something I like but...is it wildly inappropriate for the ball? I LOVE it, but I can go for something less... ostentatious if it's not appropriate.

Here is the dress:

Damn. Seriously, I have never seen a more fabulous necklace. Since the dress is so simple, I think it would add a really interesting accent, though, I've always been more of an eccentric dresser. I think you should go for it!

I had a boyfriend in college that had ball jewelry.

I love it!

I'm wearing a strapless dress and looking for jewelry also, but debating whether I want a big necklace or super fun earrings.

Are you at JBSA by any chance?

My rule is either big earrings or big necklace. Not both.

I think its beautiful. If it makes you feel pretty, go for it!

 Wear what makes you feel good.  I wouldn't wear that jewelry, but I'm a plain jane kind of girl.

I say go for it! The dress is elegant and it would be a very interesting accent and go fabulously with the burgundy as well. I would just wear the necklace but I'm not much of an earrings girl.

I have simpler earrings, those just come with it I don't have to wear them.
