If your fireplace doesn’t have the allure it used to, maybe it just needs a sparkling necklace.

Has the romantic charm of your gas fireplace cooled off? Has the crackle of the flames (okay, gas fireplaces sort of hiss) lost their je ne sais quoi?

Have we found the fireplace for you.

The LHD50SS direct-vent gas fireplace by Napoleon includes an elaborate necklace of cut crystals made by Swarovski, internationally renowned producer of precision-cut crystals for the jewelry and fashion marketplace.

Stretched out across the bed of the firebox in luxurious display, the crystal necklace is intended as the ultimate in fireplace bling. In the words of the LDH50SS brochure: “The results captivate, thrill and create the desire for absolute elegance.”

But it’s not cheap.

A “regular” Napoleon LDH50 fireplace with standard 50-by-16-inch glass viewing area retails for $4,329. Adding the Swarovski sparkle ups the price to $10,499, and $12,599 for a see-through unit.

If the cost of that bling is a bit much for you, but you’re still yearning for an exceptional fireplace experience, check out our slideshow of fireplaces to get some ideas.

What’s your dream fireplace (or do you already have it)?
