All the deep colors and sumptuous textures of fall clothes call for standout jewelry that doesn’t get lost in the mix. Jewelry carved from the fallen branches of Oregon pine trees, for example. This gorgeous pine pendant necklace from the wood art shop Turning Time allows you to bring a unique piece of nature into your wardrobe. Wear it on its own or layer it with a few metallic chains and stone pendants for a truly eclectic look. Then just sit back and let the “Where did you get your necklace?!” comments start rolling in… [$25, Etsy]

Custom Handwriting Necklace Etsy

Looking for a unique gift idea or a truly unique piece of jewelry to add to your collection? Etsy seller Brittany Leigh has got you covered with her gorgeous custom handwriting necklaces. “This idea started after my grandmother died, and I wanted to make something for my mother to keep her close despite her absence,” she explains on her shop page. “But I also wanted it to be happy, and beautiful, and capture the essence of my grandmother. I found her handwriting translated all of these things in a wonderful way.”

How it works: you send Brittany a photo of the handwriting you want jewelry-fied, and she’ll create a custom design for you. You could have your handwriting turned into a necklace for your partner, turn a kid’s signature into a sweet gift for a mom (so cute!), or memorialize a loved one as Brittany did with her grandmother’s cursive (pictured above). Prices start at $125 for sterling silver pieces, but 14K gold is also available. So pretty. [Laughing Squid]

We’ve selected 12 carved bone necklaces, earrings and bracelets — all under $100 — for your perusal. Check ‘em out, and tell us your faves in the comments.

Must Haves: Pyrite Pieces With Extra Punch

must haves pyrite pieces with extra punch

You might know pyrite by its other name — Fool’s Gold. It’s true, the stuff vaguely resembles hunks of unpolished, just-mined gold, but it’s way cooler than that — mostly because it’s actually affordable. Plus, we think pyrite has an edgier, punky quality about it. We’ve found 12 pieces of pyrite-y jewelry — most under $40! — for your perusal. Check ‘em out after the jump! Keep reading »

Kesha Rose by Charles Albert is the name of Ke$ha’s new jewelry line and it is everything you would expect it to be. The most striking pieces, however, come from her “Grow A Pear” Collection, which features small gold penises for your neck, fingers, and ears. The interesting part is that her penis-shaped jewelry is already selling out! Ke$ha is not the first one to make genital-inspired jewelry, though she may be the most successful. Indie rocker, Grimes, also came out with a line of rings with vaginas on them, which she referred to as “pussy rings.” I guess there’s a hierarchy when it comes to classiness of genital-inspired jewelry.

You know how whenever you decide to hide something in a really clever hiding spot, you end up outsmarting yourself and can’t find it the next day? It usually means you discover a $50 bill and your grandma’s secret peanut butter cookie recipe crammed under your box spring when you move, but for a Huntington Beach woman named Dori Rhoades, the failure of her clever hiding spot was a much more expensive proposition. In an apparent attempt to thwart prospective robbers, Rhoades placed $1500 cash, a ring her husband gave her, and a pair of $18,000 diamond earrings in the pockets of a jean jacket she kept in her closet. And then she forgot they were in there, at least until she had a garage sale…. Keep reading »

Looking for a classic wedding band that will also help prevent a “You forgot, didn’t you?” fight on your anniversary every year for all eternity? You might want to check out Alaska Jewelry’s new Remember Ring, which includes a small heating element that heats to 120 degrees 24 hours before your anniversary. It’s like a string tied around your finger, except it hurts (well, according to the company, the ring gets “hot enough to cause discomfort but not hot enough to burn”). If that first flare-up is not enough to jog your memory, the ring continues heating every hour on the hour for the rest of the day, which gives you plenty of time to get to the florist and buy a bouquet. This annual burning reminder of your love doesn’t come cheap: a Remember Ring will set you back $760, but hey, it’s a small price to pay for marital bliss, right? [psfk]

The Frisky is a house divided on sloths. Some of us think sloths are gross, not cute. Some of us think there is nothing cuter than a sloth in the bath or wearing a baby onesie. But I think we can all agree nothing says “stylish” like made-to-order clay sloth rings from Etsy. Collect them all and then accessorize with a mother-and-baby sloth necklace. Hold up, Vogue is on the phone! [Etsy]
