Jenny Bird’s bling is a favorite of stars like Selena Gomez, Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner.

Make things merry and bright with shimmery styles from Kendra Scott — including fresh takes on the Elisa necklace Taylor Swift and Simone Biles both own. Famous folks aren’t the only ones obsessed, as the jewelry designer once told Page Six Style her brand sells one original Elisa Necklace (
