Can You Tell Which Velvet Choker Costs $94 More Than The Other?
Victoria's Secret Angel Josephine Skriver wore the DANNIJO Vix Choker ($98) to Coachella this year. When I saw it on Instagram, I was like, "I want that!" It's pretty tame for the jewelry brand, which is known for starting all the body part parties with Man Repeller back in the day. So I was pleasantly surprised to see their simple velvet ribbon with a touch of detail, the perfectly-sized rhinestone circle charm. Subtly different from every other girl's black choker. Score!! https://www.instagram.com/p/BGElocruWzu/ OK, so I still haven't bought the DANNIJO one yet--but I'm happy I waited! I was playing my favorite game of "What do I want from Forever 21's New Arrivals???" when I came across a $3.90 knockoff of the Vix Choker. Score again!! Can you tell which one costs more?

Can You Tell Which Emoji Choker Costs $246 More Than The Other?
When I spotted Alison Lou's emoji chokers on Instagram, I was obsessed--what millennial wouldn't be? https://www.instagram.com/p/BHkGielhWkp/ The only downside was when I went to go buy one and saw the price: $250. I was pretty bummed out. Don't get me wrong, if I had that money to drop on a ribbon and metal charm, I would, but it's just not in the cards for me right now. Luckily, when scrolling through the New Arrivals at Forever 21, I found a knockoff for just $3.90 that satisfied my emoji choker needs. Both of them are pretty much the same idea--can you tell which emoji choker costs more than the other?

Who’s Crazy Enough To Wear This Drug Jewelry?

7 Ways To Master The Layered Necklace Look
One requirement of a fashion blogger is the ability to layer jewelry. Have you ever come across an Instagram photo from Always Judging or Sincerely Jules and wondered, "How the heck did they make all those chains look so good around their necks?" It's happened to us, which means it's likely crossed your mind at least once. So today, we are breaking down the different ways you can master the layered necklace look, with photo inspo from our fave bloggers, obvs. 1) Layer by length. Lay out all the necklaces you are attempting to wear and compare their lengths. You should have ones that fall just below one another. Start with a choker and continue to pile on from shortest to longest chain. http://instagram.com/p/x7I_KbhZCG/?modal=true 2) Use a collar as a length guideline. The more unbuttoned a collared shirt is, the more room you have for long necklaces. Use the exposed skin as a guideline for how low your necklaces can go. Once they hit the shirt, you've gone to far. Photo via Haute Inhabit 3) Play off similar styles. If you have necklaces with similar charms or pendants, pair them together. Even better if they fall in the same color family. http://instagram.com/p/s3Wvz6B3n5/?modal=true 4) Lariats add length. Lariat necklaces, the ones with a single drop strand, are an easy way to add extreme length to your #neckparty (is that a thing @leandramedine? We're asking you as the coiner of the phrase "arm party.") Photo via Always Judging 5) Pair a dainty necklace with a chunky one. Again, make sure the two are different lengths so the chunky necklace doesn't completely cover the dainty one. Photo via A House In The Hills 6) Pile on plain chains. If you want a minimal look, layer necklaces with small or no charms in the same color family. http://instagram.com/p/t9h-cih3o4/?modal=true 7) Pile on chunky necklaces. For a more statement-making look, pair chunky necklaces that are the same, or similar, length and can rest on top of each other (trust me, they will all be seen). http://instagram.com/p/yKXoA1hZCw/?modal=true [Photo: Always Judging]

When It Comes To Wearing Necklaces, 2 Is Always Better Than 1
We would never put the words "layering" and "summer" in the same sentence, unless we're talking about wearing more than one necklace. BUT we're actually not. Confused? Let me explain how this trend works. Wearing multiple necklaces at a time isn't anything new. However, wearing one necklace that has multiple layers is. Whoever thought to connect a bunch chains with one clasp is a genius. You get the layered look in one piece and don't have to worry about finding a trillion necklaces that are just the right amount of space away from each other. Plus, it's like you're buying 2 for the price of 1. If that's not #winning, then I don't know what Charlie Sheen was talking about back in 2011 (jk, I do). Check out our favorites in the slideshow and (fake) layer it UP this summer.

These Rope Necklaces Are Changing The Jewelry Game
If you're sick of wearing gold necklaces or can't see yourself in a string of pearls, then this new necklace trend might be the exact style you're looking for.

They're sometimes thick in size, too, making them a true statement piece, and usually contain hardware details or bright colors. Whether you're looking for an Art Deco-inspired style or an abstract conversation starter, check out our slideshow of rope necklaces to see which one suits your best. Check out more jewelry stories: chain rings, mix-and-match earrings, and layered necklaces.
Layered Necklaces Are A Pretty Sweet Deal–They’re Like 3 In 1
Layering necklaces is somewhat of an art. You have to have an eye for what works together for a stylish combination (proportion is key). It's a skill that requires practice but seriously, who has time for that? For some of you, it might be a fun fashion challenge but for those of you that just want to know what works and wear it, then these already-layered necklaces are a huge help. Whether you want to make a statement with studs or wear multiple chains like a pro, we've picked our favorite layered necklaces in the slideshow above. Check out more jewelry stories: chain rings, Three Jane's customizable map necklaces, and non-romantic Valentine's Day gifts.
Three Jane’s Customizable Map Necklace Is What This Girl Wants For Valentine’s Day
If the phrase "He went to Jared" makes you cringe, we found a Valentine's-worthy piece of jewelry that you'll love. Three Jane's Map Necklace ($175) is a gold-plated map which uses a diamond to identify an important location--can be a street address, a neighborhood, your home town. The customizable piece, which is flying off shelves and earning a celebrity cult following, is sweet and clever--but, most importantly, something that none of your friends will have. Three Jane owner and designer Katie Schloss, who's earned a celeb following in Olivia Wilde and Anna Kendrick, came up with the concept when her "sister was studying abroad in Europe, and I was coming over to visit for her birthday. I couldn't think of a gift for the girl who has everything, so I made a Map Necklace of our house in Connecticut, that way she could have a little piece of home wherever she went." Love it! Allison Williams (Marnie Michaels on HBO's Girls) is a fan of the map necklace; hers marks a multi-generational family home in New Canaan, Connecticut where both her and her mother grew up. "I love that you can personalize these to mark an important place with a small diamond. They are just so special and I fell instantly in love with the concept," Williams told Stylist.com. But, if your parent's home isn't the same place you call "home," the Three Jane Map Necklace can be fashioned to any locale you want. They even come pre-made, if you want a popular location like a specific college, a well-known travel destination, the ending point of a special marathon or even a hospital where you or your child was born. "I'd say at least a quarter of customers email to say that the gift's recipient cried when the necklace was given, " says Schloss. "I've had customers whose homes were destroyed as a result of Sandy or another weather system, and they always say that this piece of jewelry actually brings them home again." It's the perfect gift for new moms, best friends, graduates or just as a reminder to yourself to appreciate your physical location or mark a milestone, click here to create your own.
Lariat, Lasso, Drop Necklace, Who Cares What It’s Called? We Just Want One.
When we first spotted Kate Winslet in her diamond drop necklace, we didn't think it would be as common as those gorgeous engagement rings popping up all over the red carpet. Now we've seen celebrities Miranda Kerr, Britney Spears, and Olivia Wilde flaunting the comeback jewelry piece in a number of different styles. The drop necklace, aka the lariat (or "lasso") necklace, usually doesn't have a clasp and is pretty long in length, allowing the wearer to drape the piece over their neck or wrap it around. (Think of it as a glitzier version of a cowboy's bolo tie.) Chances are you haven't tried one on yet and now is the perfect time to give this unique jewelry style a try. From super simple drop necklaces in gold to silver lariats with star-shaped charms, we've picked 13 of our favorite necklaces in the slideshow above.

Get Your Hands On The Crawley’s Goods: Downton Abbey Jewelry Is Here!
All this British high-society stuff is making us jealous! Between the royal baby, Prince Harry getting engaged and then having to wait what seems like the length of time between the last Downton Abbey episode and present day to see how the heck [SPOILER ALERT] Mary copes is just so frustrating. Of course, we're only saying this because us Americans aren't a part of it. Our forefathers severed those ties for us and while that's cool and all (you know, freedom and stuff), British high-society is definitely very in right now. But don't worry your democratic soul too much, because even if you can't trade lives or literally transport to another time, you can stock up on jewelry pieces that would make even Mary swoon. That's right, intricate Downton Abbey-inspired necklaces, drop earrings and decorative brooches just hit Macy's, and they're all between $20 and $35!

The 8 Most-Wanted Jewelry Pieces For Fall–And Their Under $100 Knock-Offs

A Guide To Buying Your Wedding Accessories Online
We've written extensively on wedding dress shopping, but it's time to give wedding accessories their due. While the wedding dress is basically the focal point of your entire wedding day, bridal accessories can make or break your wedding look. If you're the type of bride who wants your wedding guests to see your unique, personal style shining through, and not just 18 layers of lace and tulle, we can certainly empathize. But before you give yourself permission to go on an epic, bauble-buying spree, take a breath, and get the answers to these 10 important questions. 1. How does it accent your dress and shoes? Unless you’re planning your entire bridal ensemble around one statement-making necklace or headpiece, hold off on accessory shopping until the wedding dress and shoes are in the bag. 2. How big is it? A lot of wedding accessories are presented in pictures that don’t actually provide any sense of scale. Make sure to look at a picture of the item on a model, or check out the measurements and find a comparable item in your own collection for comparison. 3. What’s the item’s ETA? Whether you’re shopping for something made-to-order on Etsy, or you’re having fancy baubles imported from overseas, it’s important to know the timeline for receiving your accessories. A popular Etsy vendor will sometimes need a full month to even finish your items, so be sure to read the entire item listing, so you know what you’re signing up for. 4. What’s the return policy? A birdcage veil looked fab on the model, but on your actual head, not so much. If you got something custom-made, there’s a strong possibility that returning it for a refund might not be an option. Even your favorite retailers won’t accept a return if an item is on final sale or clearance - again, read the fine print! 5. What’s it made of? Be sure to figure out whether the necklace you’re eyeing is made of fine crystals or plexiglass before you hit “add to cart”. Costume jewelry sometimes looks a lot better under studio lighting than it does in real life. It’s your wedding day, splurge on something of a better make and higher quality than what you usually buy. (For a little high-end inspiration, check out our 5 latest bridal accessory obsessions.) 6. Does it play well with your wedding colors and design scheme? How will your accessories look against your wedding backdrop? Your reception tables? On the dancefloor? Will they pop in a good way, or in a garish way? 7. Did you budget for this? If this isn’t something you’ve had your heart set on for a while, it might not be a great time for a few impulse buys. You are concurrently planning a wedding right now, after all. Unless... 8. Does it fit in to your something borrowed, something blue, something old, something new schematic? Keep in mind that people will probably lavish you wish small little gifts at your shower or bachelorette party that meet at least one (if not all) of these requirements. On that note... 9. Is this something that someone might like to buy for you? Now obviously, I’m not saying you should ask anyone to, because that’s a little tacky. However, it’s likely that at this very moment, your bridesmaids are all scrambling to find something to buy you as a wedding gift. Gushing over a wedding accessory or two on social media is a nice, somewhat subtle way to throw them a bone. The magic of “social shopping” makes gift hint-dropping easier than ever these days! 10. Is it soul-stirring? I realize this one’s a little abstract, but seriously - does it speak to you on a deep, almost primeval level? The universe is full of shiny pretties, but you should love your wedding accessories almost as much as you love your future husband. I’m just kidding - but you should love it almost as much as you love your wedding dress. In the mood to shop? Check out 10 wedding shoes that will never go out of style and the 15 best polishes for a 'Something Blue' pedicure. [Photo: Ash & James Photography]
Tassels Are King For Spring: Just Ask Matthew Williamson, Duro Olowu & More
Though tassels have long been associated with burlesque dancers and the adorable flying carpet from Aladdin -- two very competing images -- we thought we'd remind you of their other purpose: as fun accessories. The swinging statement pieces have been seen on spring runways for the past 2 seasons (Vivienne Westwood, Matthew Williamson, D&G, just to name a few) and can also be found in Duro Olowu's upcoming collection for JCP: Duro Olowu for JCP (March 1). Bright, colorful tassels are reminiscent of summer camp friendship bracelets, and look fantastic stacked up and paired with a breezy maxi dress (see the street style below). Likewise, gold and silver chain tassels (like a serious shoulder-dusting pair) can easily glam up a plain tee and jeans on lazy days.

It May Not Be A Crown, But You Can Still Wear Pippa Middleton’s Gold
Pippa Middelton strolled around London wearing an of-the-moment aubergine colored shirt and something shiny and delicate around her neck. She may be known for her bootylicious backside, but the sister of Princess Kate has a low-key style that has us plebeians scouring the web for her items (like hunter green jeans and Temperly dresses). The royal-in-law may not have crown status (yet), but she certainly knows how step out in high-end style. Pippa wears a Framed Gold Disc necklace ($530) complete with her initials and a single diamond. Shop below and personalize your disc with initials, diamonds, or birthstone!

Marie Claire Accessories Editor Turns Designer And Dudine Jewelry Is Born: Shop Now!
Dudine may be the new kid on the block, but the Jen Kramer, jewelry brand's designer has had her hands busy handling all sorts of baubles for years. After years as an accessories editor W, Marie Claire and InStyle, Jen Kramer ventured into a collection of wear-with-anything west coast-infused jewelry. The Dudine aesthetic is a healthy mix of charming Mexican flair (a weighty Bandera pendant necklace) with downtown grungy-chic rock 'n' roll sensibilities (a bullet ring!), which means most pieces are ready and waiting for regular rotation. "It was important to me that the pieces have a bold, but not overwhelming design. They're strong enough to wear on their own, and can be dramatic when worn together, but it's never excessive," Jen told us. "I wanted the collection to be comprised of pieces you want to wear every day and also have pieces for when you're looking to make a fashion-forward statement. I tend to be a jewelry junkie so I love to layer pieces together." Inspired by her travels from the wide-open beaches of Baja California and "the colorful history of colonial Mexico," as Jen said, the line is made from materials like antiqued metal, turquoise, glass and resin. They're certainly made to layer! With prices going from $30 for the "Mexican Vagabond multi-strand rope ring to $175 for the Bandera pendant necklace, Jen said she wanted the line to be well-crafted "affordable luxury." Even better? You can spend your paycheck guilt-free: 10% of all proceeds will benefit the Thousand Smiles Foundation, a charity in the very country that supplied her with enough inspiration to create her fall 2012 collection. Every season, Jen will pick a new charity to work with. Click through the slideshow to take a peek at our favorite picks from Dudine's inaugural line. Want to add to your jewelry box? Shop fall's most baddest trend (ear cuffs!) now, get your hands on wild animal-themed jewelry, or dress up even the most boring outfit with these statement necklaces.
9 Show-Stopping Bib Necklaces For When You Hate What’s In Your Closet
This fall, it's all about making a serious statement, and what better way to do that than with some ice around your neck? Collar necklaces are not only the key to vamping up a boring, tired jeans-and-tee outfit, but they're the bread and butter of all street style mavens. It can be hard to crawl out of a sartorial rut, even with this week's constant flow of New York Fashion Week outfit ideas, but if you're sick of opening your closet and feeling, well, less than inspired, (or, if you're not brave enough to try out a stand-alone collar), opt for a spotlight-stealing bib necklace. It doesn't matter if you're heading to a weekend cocktail party or the office: get your fix in before you have to cover up your decolletage with a scarf!

If You Like It, Then You Should Put A Bib On It: Statement Necklaces For The Lazy Chick
All of us have had those rushed mornings--or frenzied nights-when the last thing we've wanted to do is plan an outfit. Normally, for me, these occasions end in me standing amidst a mess of my garments, wearing a top I haven't seen since sophomore year of college but can't bear to throw away, and texting my friends or emailing my coworkers in hysterics and announcing that I'll probaaaably be running a few minutes late. An easy solution that won't end in tears and a closet that resembles a crime scene? Step 1: White Tee Shirt. Step 2: Fave Jeans. Step 3: Put A Bib On It. None of us want to show up for a dinner date or meeting wearing boring jeans and a tee, and luckily, with this season's statement necklaces, none of us have to. These necklaces add a bold pop of color and bling to your outfit, and the best part about them is that they not only require very little outfit planning, but they also let us lazy chicks recycle our favorite jeans and tee shirts over and over again. We've rounded up some of our favorite statement necklaces in the slideshow above to make getting dressed in the morning that much easier. Feeling daring? Add a bracelet, brooch, or pair of earrings! You're welcome, sista friend.
