We're not huge Rachel Zoe fans (Girl needs to eat her some cheeseburgers, get that permanent "I just smelled something bad" expression off her face, and stop wearing $5000 mumus), but we were begrudgingly impressed by her "I Die!" themed photo spread for the September 2010 Harper's Bazaar. And we couldn't stop staring at the stunning Vera Wang Asymmetric Pearl Necklace ($695) she wears in the shot with, who else, Vera Wang. And we now can't stop coveting it. To quote, "We DIE!" But rather than spend a huge chunk of our monthly rent on one necklace, we found a few cheaper alternatives.
To wit: the Blu Bijoux Coral Pearl and Chains Necklace ($46, #2), which we would twist & tangle up a bit on our own, the Lee Angel Jewelry Martine Pearl Necklace (#3, $352), the ABS by Allen Schwartz Multi-Media Twisted Swag Necklace (#4, $113 on sale), or the Forever 21 Tangled Web Necklace (#5, $15). Of course, if you're a crafty sort, you can buy a few lengths of faux pearl garland at a craft store and start twistin' away.
