As any fashion-lover knows, an easy way to jazz up an ensemble is with a sparkly piece of new jewelry! Fortunately there are plenty of eye-catching necklaces to choose from this holiday season.

Take your cues from the runway and throw on a fabulous statement necklace. Vera Wang knotted strands of pearls to create unfussy bib versions while Banana Republic opted for ornate gold and silver creations. At Dolce & Gabbana we saw chains adored with charms and giant gems peeked out from heavy winter coats at Elie Tahari's fall 2010 show.

Not surprisingly, celebs are adding extra pizazz to their outfits, too. Michelle Obama's love for Fenton-Fallon necklaces resulted in a retail extravaganza, while Christina Hendricks recently wore a bedazzling version on the cover of the LA Times Magazine.

Whether you want to further bedazzle your outfit or simply dress up a jeans and tee combo, this assortment of stylish accessories is not to be missed.
