Neck Wear

By washingtonpost.com

Attention, all of you fashion-forward girls out there who want to look like a million without spending big bucks. The fashion industry is touting necklaces as the accessory du jour and encouraging all the faithful to wear several of them in layers. Well, that can get pretty pricey if you consider the tag on one of David Yurman's popular styles -- the Tahitian gray pearl necklace in sterling silver comes to $2,750. Whoa! But the thrifty can bypass this mega price tag by looking no further than Banana Republic, where a long chain and imitation pearl necklace for $58 bears an uncanny likeness to the real deal. -- Janet

I also found a site called www.ioffer.com that has many knockoffs (usually real silver) at great prices!! Why buy the real thing when you can get a look a like for cheap!

Check out overstock.com for jewelry! I'm always overwhelmed by all the options at great prices! I recently spotted 3 or 4-strand pearl necklaces with 1 strand of either coral or turquoise beads in the mix. Great layered look, and I think it was only around $40 or $50 dollars.
