Awesome Affordable Etsy Find: Subtle Studs

As much as I usually favor statement-making jewelry -- disco ball-sized necklaces, sparkly chandelier earrings, etc. -- sometimes subtle pieces can pack quite a punch. These blue pearl studs would look so chic peeking out from casual summer hair. And lucky for us, these tiny earrings have a tiny price tag to match. [$10,…

We Heart These Joelle Earrings

In celebration of the bonds between friends and loved ones, Joelle by Marc Joseph has created a collection of whimsical silver trinkets. We're quite smitten with the "I Heart U" stud earrings because of the simple yet chic design and message. The carved letters provide an strong contrast to the mirror finish of the earrings.

Do Not Want: Gold Chain Garter

Like many women, I'm constantly looking for ways to highlight my leg fat and emphasize the parts of my body I feel most uncomfortable with. I'm also always trying to innovate in the field of weird ways and places to wear jewelry. So, with that in mind, I absolutely recommend we all run out and…

A Knuckle Sandwich of an Engagement Ring

Well, this is certainly a new interpretation on the old engagement ring tradition. Designer Kate Bauman created a brass knuckle engagement ring, by fusing together four faux-diamond rings and setting them upon an ornamental palm grip. Certainly not for everyone, but perhaps if you're feeling feisty and combative, this is the engagement ring for you?

Would You Wear: A Sex Ring?

When Christina Aguilera's album Bionic dropped last April, it was impossible to miss the singer's sudden interest in kink -- her video for "Not Myself Tonight" featured whips, chains, a gimp mask, a ball gag, and drinking from a doggy bowl, among other things. Plus, there was that promotional photo featuring the…

Two-Finger Blockin’

Our fingers are one of our favorite body parts to adorn, so we're happy that multi-finger rings are a huge jewelry trend now. The bronze-plated blocks of this two-finger ring by Low Luv remind us of medieval architecture. Plus, we can pass time by counting the triangles in the design.

The Rundown On Reese’s Engagement Ring

We are officially jealous of Reese Witherspoon. We're getting information on the ring Jim Toth offered her and damn, is it awesome. The timeless design by William Goldberg features a square-cut 4-karat diamond and pave diamond band. While the diamond may look standard, it's anything but. Apparently the cut was inspired by a diamond…

Dear Wendy: “I Don’t Like My Boyfriend’s Christmas Gift”

My boyfriend and I have been seeing each other about a year now. For Christmas he gave me a beautiful pearl necklace, which I appreciated very much; I understand the effort that he put in to picking it out for me. My birthday is coming up soon and he mentioned getting me a different color…

Melting Hearts For Your Ears

While Craves are normally something you'd want to buy for yourself, we'd rather love it if someone else bought us these Melting Heart earrings by Brooklyn designer Yayoi Forest. So if there are any boyfriends (ahem, ahem) out there looking for poignant yet not too expensive gifts for your lady, consider this pair which literally…

We Love It When You Say Yes

This super cute necklace has just the right amount of cheekiness to make it right up there on the wants list. We love the laser-cut black acrylic; the sans serif font and drippy bits are simple and bold at the same time. And at 30 percent off, this accessory is at a price that make…

Awesome Affordable Etsy Find: Ear Ornament

We're getting our Christmas tree today, which means I should be focusing on expanding our sad selection of ornaments (at last count we had one porcelain turtledove and a troll doll head with a wire sticking out of it), but I'd so much rather buy ornaments for my own head, like these festive earrings. Maybe…

Do Not Want: The Potato Chip Necklace

Isn't the goal normally to keep food off your person? We're not harshing on all food-related fashion, but it's just that this potato chip necklace looks almost too real, and potentially freaky. Like: "Oh hey ... did you realize you have a whole potato chip inexplicably stuck to your chest?" [The Curiosity Shoppe]…

Do Not Want: Boobs Necklace By Neivz

We spend enough time dealing with gawkers who blatantly stare at our chests. So we highly doubt that wearing a necklace depicting boobs would help much in the matter. Well, maybe it would stall a bit, but second after your necklace, your boobs would surely be the focus. [80s Purple]…

Saw This One Coming: People Copycatting Middleton’s Ring

No surprise here: USA Today reports that following Kate Middleton's engagement, jewelers have been "flooded" with requests for replicas of the sapphire and diamond ring that once belonged to Princess Diana.

Jewelry Superstitions: Why Wearing Diana’s Ring May Be A Bad Omen For Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton's engagement ring just so happens to be a hand-me-down from the late Princess Diana. Although this family treasure is very dear to Prince William’s heart, the superstitious among us would agree that Kate should never have accepted it. Why? Well, because it's widely believed that jewelry can be cursed. Take the…
