The new issue of Harper's Bazaar includes their monthly "Buy, Keep, Store" feature, in which they tell you what you should buy now, what things you've bought that you should keep wearing and what things you should store away until they're in fashion again. This month they're focusing on three categories, one of which is jewelry. What piece of jewelry should you buy now? A bold necklace.
The magazine suggests a very interesting one made by a very high-end French couturier. The price: $7,600. Chump change, right? Yeah, sure.
Do you want a truly affordable bold necklace? The Neptune's Daughter Necklace (below) is made with hand-strung glass beads. It's a multi-strand, 14" necklace with a 3" extender and a secure lobster-claw clasp. The $39.75 price includes a pair of chandelier earrings (for pierced ears only).
After this purchase you'll have enough money left to do more shopping. Too bad most of us can't say the same thing about that $7,600 piece!
