Monica Rich Kosann's Planet Collection
WHAT: Monica Rich Kosann's Earth Charm Necklace
WHY: The world is such a charming place. So why not wear it as such? Monica Rich Kosann's Planet Collection features fine jewelry (think gold filagree with emeralds, rubies, and diamonds) of 6 different planets in our solar system, each representing different emotions. Our preference? Nothing intergalactic, just our native Earth, spun of 18K gold on a delicate chain. And each piece is customized with a tiny diamond over your city of choice, so then you can keep home close to your heart, no matter where your jetsetting may take you.

Lulu Frost for J.Crew Crystal Horseshoe Necklace
WHAT: Lulu Frost for J.Crew Crystal Horseshoe Necklace
WHY: The "In Good Company" section of the J.Crew site is always a brilliant reminder to the fashion types that the brand is more than cashmere and tissue tees. Their most recent collaboration is with Chic darling Lulu Frost. We just can't get enough of Lisa Salzer in our lives! The Art Deco-infused collection matches glossy resin in bright colors with clusters of crystals. This geometric necklace is our pick of The Daily from the line. We can't help but wonder if some of the pieces will be accessorizing J.Crew's debut presentation at Fashion Week... J'espere!
AVAILABLE: $118, www.JCrew.com
