Another day, another Target collaboration. Here’s a first look at Anna Sheffield’s (of Bing Bang accessories fame) jewelry collection designed for the fashionable retail giant. In the mix: necklaces with vintage-inspired cameo pendants and insignia charms with Victorian touches like ribbon strands. The earrings recall Sheffield’s signature style with draped chains of mixed shapes and colors. The line is fairly affordable with a max price point of $79.99, although most pieces cost less than $40. You’ll have to wait until August 30 for the line to drop, but, after that, you’re sure to look bangin’.

Miansai was created with boys in mind, but the aged copper bracelets, Native American-inspired necklaces, and silver-bullet charms are good enough for us. The line was created by Michael Andrew Saiger, a 23-year-old model whose love for antiques and travel inspired him to launch his first collection after graduating from college. The line just debuted and will be available in stores starting this fall. While shopping on the Miansai website, we encourage you to take a look at photos of Saiger too. He looks just as good as the jewelry he designs! [$65 - $2,500, Miansai]

So if that commercial for the Western Bacon Thickburger didn’t convince you, this advertisement surely will: Padma Lakshmi is really,really sexy. It’s for her jewelry line and was shot last spring by legendary fashion photographer, Steven Meisel. As is plenty obvious, Lakshmi is in the buff and “dressed” only in gold necklaces and gemstones from her collection. The ad will be featured in magazines this fall and will also be seen on her website, PadmaLakshmi.com. The jewels are sold online at Bergdorf Goodman stores nationwide. Nude model/designer not included. Do we like? [WWD]
If you’re going to wear fake bling, just be shameless. Like fake-jewels-and-animal-faces shameless. That’s why you need to get your paws on this Friendly Lion Bracelet. Those fake diamonds! That fake ruby! And it’s “gold!” And I bet it goes well with leopard or zebra print, too. Rrrrrrow! [$15, LuLu's] Keep reading »
Just the other day, I realized I hardly ever see any lush greenery in the concrete jungle I call home. Some Australian designers had the same thought, so they created “Jewelry with a Living Organism,” a collection of jewelry (term used loosely) in which every item contains at least one tiny plant. I bet this piece also improves the wearer’s breathing since plants create oxygen. [Australia, 8/6/09] Keep reading »
We love laying on the deck of a sailing boat on a hot summer day, but what we love even more is all the gold, nautical-themed accessories that are inspired by it. Go ahead and tie yourself up in (golden) knots. Keep reading »
Time and death were the inspirations behind Christian Dior‘s latest line of uber-opulent jewelry. Dubbed the “Kings and Queens Collection,” these luxurious accessories, designed by Victoire de Castellane, are crafted from opal, jade, and obsidian. The stones are then sculpted into skulls complete with ornate, blinged out crowns and collars. The garish heads are meant to represent the passing of time and the coming of death, while the sparkling crown and collar remind us to enjoy every moment. This time around, we sort of don’t see what’s so hot about this haute piece. [I strongly disagree. They're gorgeous and I'll take two please! -- Editor] Especially not when the rings, which are meant to be worn two at time, will surely cost a fortune. [D'oh! -- Ed.] We’re assuming this isn’t necessarily in your budget, but in case it is log on to Dior‘s fine jewelry website for details on where to buy — then call us for dinner!

Singer Estelle will collaborate on a jewelry line with fashion designer Rachel Roy, whose clothing is demure and beautiful yet also alluring. Roy announced the deal via Twitter saying, “I am excited to work with @EstelleDarlings on a jewelry collection, which will debut in Spring 2010.” No details are available yet because the collection is still in its early development stages, says Roy’s spokesperson. We’re curious how the duo will merge Estelle’s high-glam, in-your-face style with Roy’s mysterious and refined aesthetic. But if you can’t have fun with your jewelry and accessories, then what’s the point of getting dressed? Estelle will be on hand to host the launch party for Roy’s pop-up shop, which opens Sept. 10, during New York Fashion Week. (You may remember that Estelle has honed her design skills during her collaborations with shoe designer Jonathan Kelsey and H&M.) Although Roy’s marriage to Damon Dash has failed, this collabo and the launch of Rachel Rachel Roy at Macy’s in August are spelling success for her brand. [WWD via Sassy Bella] Keep reading »
