Several weeks ago, Ann Taylor presented their spring 2011 collection atop the Gramercy Park Hotel. The star-studded affair was attended by Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Palermo, and Fernanda Motta.

While Ann Taylor is still a go-to for quality day-to-night attire, I’m particularly impressed with their baubles. The brand’s accessory design team has done a wonderful job of crafting stand-out costume jewelry even I would purchase. (I say that because I have an under $40 costume jewelry rule; I normally can not justify paying hundreds of dollars for jewelry that isn’t made of gold or platinum with precious or semi-precious stones.) However, I’m quite smitten with Ann Taylor’s Statement Tassel Necklace, which hits stores this spring and will retail for $68. The burnished metal finish has an antique finish, and with just a few crystals around the rim of the tassel head, the minimal look blends well with any top or dress. If I didn’t get this in my swag bag at the preview, I’d certainly be anxious to purchase it once it hits stores. Trust me, you will not be sorry with this piece!
