This last season of “Gossip Girl” felt a bit like a hookup without an orgasm. As in, you got psyched up for it, but went home completely frustrated (last time we checked, a “plot twist” wasn’t something completely predictable, or a coupling some writers pulled out of a hat). One of our biggest gripes: where was Chuck Bass’s bangin’ wardrobe? We used to shriek with glee every time the smooth-voiced boy showed up in an orange trench coat or a purple velvet suit. Somehow, jewelry company Alex and Ani manages to make up for it all with this gold Chuck Bass charm bracelet. How could you not get off after seeing that blingy charm sporting the Hotel heir’s name? We’d wear this with pride, Chuck, because we’ll totally take you back. Unlike some headband-wearing brunettes we know. Best of all, at $29, this accessory doesn’t come with “Gossip Girl” prices.

The bookhanger necklace: so much better than a name tag. Although if you did have one, it would read: Dorkus Malorkus. [Racked] Keep reading »
How do you express the bond you feel with your BFF? Give her the adult version of a friendship bracelet. You each get one of these gold-plated Gorjana friendship bracelets with dangling hearts to show your mutual love. But if you’re not in a giving mood, then wear ‘em both until you find a worthy friend.
We love adorning our fingers with nail polish and rings, but never have we thought of wearing a fake fingertip. Maybe jewelry designer Cornelia Webb was trying to make this piece as fashionable as eye patches once were, but thinking of all the ways a person could have her fingertip chopped off is a macabre daydream we don’t want to have. Plus, think of how easy it would be to lose this piece of jewelry. [I'm Revolting] Keep reading »
Before, it was “subtly” dropping ring hints by making comments while window shopping, commenting on a celeb’s new bling, or whispering, “Tiffany’s Lucida cut 2.5 carats sterling setting” into his ear while he was sleeping. Now, selecting an engagement ring has gone high-tech thanks to Tiffany’s Engagement Ring Finder iPhone app, which the jeweler released today. The free program lets you browse the catalog, select a style according to your desires, measure ring sizes on your iPhone’s screen, and save your preferred designs. (Uh, dangerous. You will become mesmerized and obsessed whether marriage is in your future or not.)
So now all you have to do is “discreetly” play with the program in front of your future fiancé. Or better yet, download the app and put it on his own phone when he’s not looking. [AppShopper] Keep reading »
Nicole Richie has come a long way since her “Simple Life” days and, aesthetically speaking, nowhere is that more evident than her jewelry line House of Harlow. We remain skeptical about her Winter Kate clothing franchise, but Nicole’s jewelry is consistently an expert blend of vintage and modern, forcing us to lust after pretty much all of it. Sadly, at about $150 for a bracelet and as much as $250 per necklace, the stuff isn’t exactly free. If you’re in the market for an awesome piece of costume jewelry, though, give House of Harlow a look, because we pretty much guarantee you’ll find something to add to your wish list. Keep reading »
