J.C. Penney might be floundering financially, in the wake of its $552 million net loss in the fourth quarter and the recent departure of former CEO Ron Johnson. But its fashion and beauty offerings continue to improve as the retailer adds designs by some of the industry's biggest names (Nanette Lepore, Duro Olowu and Marchesa, for example) to its inventory.

Its latest venture is an amped-up jewelry department called The Bijoux Bar, which will feature modestly priced pieces by some of the accessory world's top names, including Kara Ross, Kenneth Jay Lane and Lana Bramlette.

It rolls out in stores starting today, or shop the collections online at
