What: A blue resin, crystal and 18-karat gold brass-plated necklace created by celebrity-loved jewelry designer Kara Ross.

Why:  The pretty piece is part of Ross’s debut collection for JCPenney, dubbed 10021 after the New York zip code where she first got her start. “I wore this necklace for a black tie event in Palm Beach, and I got so many compliments on it,” Ross told us about the bauble. “I was like, I got it at JCPenney!'”

How: The necklace is a great way to dress up an otherwise casual T-shirt and jeans look, or go the route Kara took and try it for a fancy nighttime affair.
