If you’re a true Apple fan, you have already signed up with Cupidtino and placed your pre-order for the iPhone 4.0, so here’s a new product to satisfy your Steve Jobs hunger. Nicola Harper from Geekware channeled her Mac addiction into a jewelry fetish and found a way to re-use old computer parts. With two on/off buttons, she created a set of MacBook Power Button Earrings and transformed two command buttons into a set of Apple MacBook Cufflinks. As with everything Apple-related, the items are a bit overpriced, retailing for $29.95 and $49.95, respectively. But for those who shell out upwards of $499 for an iPad, this is spare change, right?

What mother doesn’t need a child’s tooth cast in metal dangling from her ears or hanging around her neck? Kim Kovel made a gold version of the first tooth her son lost and wore it as a good luck charm. When people asked her about it, she decided to start custom-making them for other moms in need of false teeth. Le Knockout jewelry starts at $99 and prices go all the way up to $7,039, and don’t worry, they send back the original tooth. [Le Knockout] Keep reading »
There are two types of people in the world: those who wrote off Juicy around the same time they got rid of their Uggs, and those who look like they’re vying for a spot on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” or “Jersey Shore.” Or at least, that’s what we thought. The maker of the iconic velour tracksuit has steered itself in a new and appealing direction—you may have heard that they recently hired Erin Fetherston to design and consult for the brand—and you can already see some fresh style through the new jewelry offerings. Some of these pieces seem to take inspiration from Dior’s floral cluster designs, which is a good thing because we can’t afford Dior anyhow. As for JC, we’re loving the vintage-looking enameled flowers found on showy cocktail rings and delicate chains. Some other highlights include interwoven fabric and chain necklaces, messy cluster jewelry à la Tom Binns, and delicate hoop earrings draped with trinkets. Check out a few more of our favorite pieces after the jump! [JuicyCouture.com] Keep reading »
When it comes to fashion, I adore the subversive. Black leather and studs, gun print dresses, safety pins, you name it — I’ve worn it and loved it. So it’s perhaps hypocritical of me, but I have to draw the line at this “cheeky” pharmaceutical trend. Keep reading »
As a matter of fact, there is something tackier than wearing a Disney Princess wedding gown: a “Twilight” engagement ring.
Author Stephenie Meyer has teamed up with Infinite Jewelry Co. to co-design a trinket based on the engagement ring that vampire Edward Cullen gives Bella Swan in the latest “Eclipse” movie. The rings are available in 14K yellow or white gold with an oval face set with 13 glittery gems. Middle school girls can get the $35 knockoff ring and we big girls can have the real diamond version — called “Bella’s Genuine Engagement Ring” — for a cool $1,979.
