Recessionista: Never Break the Chain

OMG. Vera Wang for $16.80.

I love this Vera Wang Simply Vera Kohl's collection. Hannah Deely, our accessories maven, found this multistrand chain link and red faux ruby necklace -- and for $16.80, you can't go wrong!

Perfect with a holiday dress or a tank with a little blazer and jeans. I also love the ribbon tie around the neck, which breaks up the the toughness and mixes in the sweet.

What I also adore about the quality of the jewelry on this line is that the pieces are very solid, very sturdy. Sometimes you get inexpensive jewelry that feels that it’s going lose stones or break apart. Trust me: This stays put.

- Extra-long multistrand design offers eye-catching appeal
- Red faux crystals provide bold color
- Jet-tone finish lends subtle shine
- Ribbon closure ensures the perfect fit
- 10 1/2-inch chain (48-inch total length)
