WHAT: Lizzie Fortunato's Solo Dancer Necklace
WHY: In a season of layered chains and acres of jewels, this beaded baby by Lizzie Fortunato has never felt so fresh. Made of brass mesh chain, glass seed beads, and brass tubes, its elegant, frills-free design speaks volumes without saying all that much. Consider it your Fall 2010 talisman.

WHAT: Kara Ross Celina clutch
WHY: It's hard to resist such a gorgeously luxe skin like this---particularly when tinged with gold. But the best part about this perfect clutch (and if we've been clutch-heavy lately, désolée---but it is party season!) is the graphic black stone smack in the center. Classic? Of course! Boring? Never.

WHAT: NARS Bento Box
WHY: Get geisha-ifed with NARS' limited-edition set containing two Kabuki cups, hand-poured with two dramatic shades: a red deemed Maiko ("dancing girl/apprentice geisha") and a pink Sakura ("cherry blossom"). Housed in an exquisite box, you might feel bad using them but founder and creative director Françios Nars thinks otherwise! "You should use beautiful things, show them off and not hide them," he explains. "The box and the cups are the keepsake items."
