I bought this necklace with the intention of Tom Binns-ifying it (my rule of thumb with designer 'inspiration' is if I can afford the original I'll happily support the label, but if it is going to remain 'aspirational' for the forseeable future I have licence to DIY), but then got a bit sucked in by its vintage style charm and left it as is. I have, however, realised that it's far to shiny to exist in my everyday wardrobe without modification, so I set about making it a bit more wearable.
To say my method was basic would be an understatement - it's just nailpolish slopped on top of the diamantes - but the result is pretty satisfying. I've been wearing it non stop so can guarantee it'll be in the next outfit post.

Ps. The gorgeous Geneva over at A Pair & A Spare is queen of DIY necklaces (and everything else), she's pretty handy with the neon spray paint so I'd definitely recommend checking out her blog if you don't already know it!
