In the era of fast fashion and affordable spin-off lines, there's a certain satisfaction that comes with finding an affordable substitute for a coveted item of clothing or accessory. Such is the case with this simple, chic gold spike necklace, an easy complement to any number of outfits. The 14-karat-gold inset necklace is by Mociun and costs a splurgey $485 at Bird; the gold-plated Duncan necklace (bottom) from Flutter by Jill Golden can be had for a fifth of the price at Gargyle. Who's counting karats, anyway?
