Today's Jewelry with Special Bonus Feature

I can't even express how much I'd rather be asleep right now. It's one of those days where words lag somewhere in the deep recesses of the brain. You're a second too slow on responses. People may look at you funny.

Here's what I'm wearing today:

*Chunky black enamel cocktail ring with crystal from Banana Republic (of all places)
*Embossed hoop earrings, no idea of the origin
*Olive green sweater, grey tank, dark blue skinny jeans, gun metal ballet flats (with unseen ankle ties)


Bonus Feature:
People, I need your help. For the better part of this year, I have been looking for a new necklace to replace this:

It's my grandma's. I think it might be made of lucite or crystal or something and it broke. The connector rings are shot. I haven't tried a jeweler because I am convinced this exists somewhere and probably plentifully. (Also, I think a bunch of the beads are missing.) I feel like I've seen a million of these necklaces over my lifetime! If anyone could help, well, it would be much appreciated and would make my grandma the happiest lady ever, basically. I saw a blue one on ebay as lucite, but haven't seen anything close since.

Hey ladies,
My hope is that somebody will see this somewhere and be like, OMG! IYF's grandma!
Anyhow, thanks for ze comments.

VB: They are actually from Urban Outfitters. I NEVER shop there, but these were on sale ($48?) and I needed something to wear that evening. They are amazingly comfortable.
