Ornate Antique

Beautifully ornate Indian jewelry is hot this fall among some of Hollywood's most recognized faces. September's In Style features Courteney Cox Arquette wearing a Neil Lane necklace, Izabella Miko wearing a Sunhera necklace and Ellen Burstyn wearing a Neil Lane antique necklace.

"Breathtakingly ornate, brazenly colorful and handcrafted with a meticulousness that celebrates the indulgent tastes of 18th century Indian maharajas and Moghuls," says fashion writer Hal Rubenstein of the necklaces. "This jewelry features cascades of coral, topaz, cat's eyes, diamonds, rubies, emeralds, pearls and enamel all set in purified gold, in hope of gathering positive energy from heavenly bodies."
