O FOR THE GOLD:
This season’s jewelry makes a statement. Pick out one of these pieces to wear alone, or layer a few necklaces for a statement-making look. For work, pin a sparkly brooch on your favorite sweater or dress; for evening pull out the gemstone (right) showstopper for maximum impact. The good news? These classic pieces will always be fashionable—just like Grandma’s costume jewelry.
