With This Bear Tooth Ring, I Thee Wed?

We suppose weird, ahem, we mean original engagement rings are the thing du jour with all you “non-conformist” couples. Most of the accessories we see stay in the realm of design, but this bear tooth engagement ring is quite possibly more creepy. (The ones pictured are done in brass, but we were sure there was a real tooth version up earlier. Guess it sold out!) The inspiration behind the ring, by Etsy designer Blood Milk, is actually quite romantic. It was created out of a Grimm fairy tale in which Snow White shows kindness to a bear (who is really an imprisoned prince). After the spell is broken, the prince goes on to marry Snow White, so the ring symbolizes her love for the man even in his bear form. Which might as well just be a modern translation where the bear is played by the Joaquin Phoenixes of the world. What do you think of this animal tooth-inspired engagement ring? Too creepy? Or sweet in principle? [Etsy] Keep reading »

Won’t You Take Me To … Noble Town Vintage

When you find an awesome, affordable Etsy seller, you often feel like you’ve just won the jackpot, which is exactly the case with Noble Town Vintage’s jewelry. Re-purposed and revived, the designs are anything but overdone. Think chevron charms dangling on long necklaces, earrings with dainty brass cubes hanging from chains, art deco plaques, or chunky amethyst stones paired with worn-in chain. Our favorite: the vintage brass bar necklace, which features a horizontal bar between two strands with a choice of quirky pendants.

Visit Model And Chanteuse Karen Elson’s Vintage Shop

Racked takes readers on a nifty pictorial tour through model, singer, and wife-of-Jack Black Karen Elson’s vintage shop in Nashville, Tennessee, Venus and Mars. The store, which is located in a house, is filled with a cornucopia of eclectic old school items, from cheetah clutches to men’s suspenders, day-glo jumpers to thrift store art, summer hats to gold pumps. The showroom, which opened in 2008, is the brainchild of Elson and Amy Patterson. “The aim of the store is to encourage shoppers to think that vintage isn’t just an old hand-me-down,” Elson explains, “but a one-of-a-kind garment with a wonderful story.” You don’t have to make the trek to Nashville to shop there, though; they’ve got a Venus and Mars storefront on Etsy.
