Every magazine chirps that they're the perfect way to "jazz up" jeans and a tee, and stores, from high to low, are stocked with them.

The 11 Dannijo necklaces ahead are definitely the exception to that rule. Handmade with love right here in NYC, these are seriously stunning strands. From dramatically knotted-chain necklaces to downright-delicate strings of crystal daisies and the ever-popular warrior-princess breastplate, this is truly dramatic, eye-catching, wear-forever jewelry — the perfect antidote to the anemic-statement necklace.
