As the days get shorter and the holidays draw nigh, I love the idea of adorning myself with something a little more fanciful, festive and sparkly than my usual go-to silver or charms. Enter Lavish by Tricia Milaneze. Made in Brazil, these limited edition necklaces feature hand-crocheted 18k gold filled wire threaded with bold, colorful stones and glittering glass beads to wonderful 3-D effect. I'm particularly partial to the turquoise choker-cum-breastplate with Good 'N Plenty-shaped beads, which does, indeed, look good enough to eat. Lavish, to be sure—and just the thing to stave off the winter doldrums while making a showstopping style statement.
