Crave: AMT Ring A Day

Days of the week underwear is a wonderful fashion concept—if you’re going to have one of something you love, why not have seven? Enter the Ring a Day, which are stainless steel sheets (almost stencil-like) that come with seven with pre-cut rings of different shapes to pop out and wear for a week. Once removed from its packaging, the ring makes a minimalist statement, as it sits flat in the shapes of diamonds and gems. Once you’re done, continue the fun by hanging the leftover sheets/stencils on your wall. Or, a small hole at the top allows you to string them on a necklace, which, we have to say, is kinda weird. (What we think is cuter would be to make a charm necklace out of the cutouts.) The best part: unlike those days of the week underwear, there are no specific dates for each ring. So you’ll never get in trouble again for wearing your Mondays on a Wednesday. [$140, Supermarkethq.com] Keep reading »

Crave: Tord Boontje Charm Necklace

You may know the name Tord Boontje from those lamps made from bendy metal cutouts of flowers and leaves. (Pronouncing the name? That’s a different story.)

The Dutch designer has now created wearable art with a collection of laser-cut necklaces for Artecnica. Mirroring the style of Boontje’s lamp casings, the interchangeable charms allow you to mix and match designs of birds, flowers, deer, and other nature imagery. Pick from four packets which each have three different charms in either sterling silver or 18-karat gold. We recommend layering to get that mangled yet whimsical look Boontje is so famous for. And we promise you won’t look like you’re wearing a lampshade. [$22 and up, Tord Boontje, Unicahome.com] Keep reading »

Crave: Verameat Lucky Flower Ring

Statement pieces don’t have to be big or flashy. Take this super simple ring by Verameat with a thin band and small flower that’s sure to garner compliments. Wear it alone for a dainty look, or layer it with other rings for a funkier style. If you’re buying for yourself, choose the design in copper. For gifts, consider a classier metal, like silver or 14-karat gold. Just looking at it makes us think that everything’s coming up roses. [$48, Verameat.com] Keep reading »

The Classy USB Drive For High-Fashion Geeks

We’ve always wanted to be spies, so we adore high-tech gadgets that hide within them something unexpected. Swarovski sells not one but several dressed up USB drives decorated with about a million crystals. The Moon Chrome USB Memory Key is by far the coolest, since it’s the fanciest looking, but, sadly, it has a big price tag ($240) to match. The jump drive attached to our keychain will have to do until we marry James Bond. [Swarovski] Keep reading »

Light Up Your Neck With Some Solar Panel-Powered LEDs

We’re all about high-tech fashion and accessories, but sometimes things are all gadget-y without actually being useful. They’re cool, but what do they do? This solar panel necklace designed by Mae Yokoyama is one example. Wear it for two hours in the sun and embedded LEDs will shine for four hours. Very cool if you’re at a Disney World light show, but not actually beneficial. What would rock our world is if you could wear the necklace during the day to collect energy in a discreet way, and then plug your phone into it at night to recharge. [Dvice] Keep reading »

Have All Eyes On You With This Necklace Made From Real Eyelashes

Maybe back in the day all you had to do was bat your eyelashes to get a man’s attention. Now you do it and people assume you have something stuck in your eye or a weird twitch. Blasted! Well, you can allude to the golden days of romance and chivalry with Stephanie Simek’s eyelashe necklaces, made of 100 percent human hair. We can’t figure out if it’s creepy, cool, or both.

Crave: Demitasse Moustache Necklace

Apparently Nietzsche, like hipsters, wore a mustache while nattering on about how God is dead. Or so says Demitasse Jewelry vis-a-vis this funky little Nietszche ‘stache necklace. Sterling silver is the cheapest, but if you’ve got the money and a thing for philosophers, you can score a 14-karat one for $455. With all the coin we’ve spent on upper lip bleaching since puberty, this is just the kind of moustache we’ve been looking for! [Starting at $75, Demitasse Jewelry] Keep reading »

Skeleton Jewelry For The Ghoulish Girl

Have a taste for the strange? Feeling a bit dark? In the mood for something ghoulish yet glittery? Check out this hand-jewelry created by twentysomething-year-old designer Delfina Delettrez Fendi, a fourth-generation member of the Fendi family. For a mere $24,000, you can own this jewel-encrusted piece of wearable art that’s part bracelet, part ring, and part exposed human anatomy. It’s a bit like the unique hand-piece Lorraine Schwartz designed for Beyonce that you can see here, but this one’s more romantic than robotic. Ectoplasmosis observes: “You’ll be the envy of just everyone as you sway to the strains of Sisters of Mercy, twenty-four thousand dollars of jewel encrusted carpals and silver metacarpals shining under the dim, dim lights.” If you could afford it, would you rock it?

The next sample sale is in New York City, but you should check the website to see when your city will play host. Soon you’ll be able to shop online also. Here’s a big thank you to the recession!
