Crave: Sterling Silver “Inspirational” Circle Necklace

This necklace is nothing like your typical inspirational necklace that focuses on boring old love, faith, and hope. Instead, it encourages you to lie, cheat, and steal, which is usually considered unladylike behavior. But these verbs can totally be inspirational when you think about them this way: lie about your age, cheat on your diet,…

Crave: Mushka Designs Jewelry (Win It!)

After we saw our best friend wearing a cute navy blazer, we cribbed her style and bought the same one. Then, she got back at us by showing up to a party wearing heels just like a pair in our closet. It's our turn to make her jealous, and we're all about the Make My…

Not Your Grandmother’s Cameos

I've always associated cameos with my grandmother, probably because they seem so old school and elegant, but Jennifer Kellogg is bringing the carved jewelry into the raunchy 21st century with her Kinky Cameo Collection. Typically, cameos feature profiles of women; Kellogg's versions show a woman licking a lollipop rather sexually. While…

Crave: Arabella Venus In Furs Necklace

We love fun scarves just as much as the next fashionista, but, dang it, trying to make a fancy scarf look cute, rather than like something Jan from "The Brady Bunch" would wear, isn’t always the easiest task. Thankfully, this statement piece crafted from vintage Oscar de la Renta or Chloe silk scarves will look…

Crave: Alex & Chloe Paperclip Necklace

We left our big ol’ vintage costume jewelry in the dust after falling in love with minimalist jewelry designers Alex & Chloe. What’s not to love? Simple jewelry goes with everything, which means you can wear it more often and thus not feel as guilty about spending $100 on a necklace. This Papercli…

Crave: CC Skye Safety Pin Necklace

Remember those beaded safety pin bracelets from camp? Yes, the elastic ones with the multi-colored seed beads. We never, ever, thought safety pin jewelry would make a comeback. However, ever since we spotted this sparkly, gold safety pin necklace, we've been obsessed. It's delicate and yet it adds an element of toughness to…

Crave: Metalsgirl Resin and Herb Necklace

We've experienced growing, cooking and smoking herbs (sage, duh!), but it took jewelry designer Metalsgirl to convince us how wearable the plants are, too. Metalsgirl uses herbs like Thyme, Poppy seed, Rosemary, and Scullcap in a lovely line we covet called Resin and Herb. Love the color combination of this black, white, red and celery…

Crave: Pearl & Ribbon Necklace

Pearls are timeless and ribbon is so girly. But for some reason, when you put the two together, they kind of a have a rock ‘n’ roll edge. This necklace from Wink would look amazing with a white wife beater tank, jeans, and heels. Kind of like Jackie O, gone bad. [$58, WinkNYC.com]…

Crave: Glasses For Around Your Neck

Catherine owns this long necklace with a smallish spectacles charm danging from it. This is a much larger version, modeled after Brit-pop icon Jarvis Cocker's glasses. They won't help you with your far sightedness, though. [$68.72 (converted from British pounds), TattyDevine.com]…

Crave: A Necklace For Women Who Like It Raw

Raw stones are very big for spring and summer jewelry -- this necklace by KRitt does it just right. The cool asymmetrical shape, big, square turquoise stones, and delicate gold chain set this piece apart from anything I've seen. [$150, KRittJewelry.com]…

Crave: Made By The Algorithms Of Nature

We love it when smarty-pants people, like MIT grads Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg, use their brilliance for things like curing disease and/or making jewelry. This "Full Moon" necklace from their "Nervous System" line is a "one of a kind composition born from the intersection of rapid prototyping and pattern generating algorithms." Yeah, we don't…

Crave: A Necklace That Even An Elephant Would Love

Isn't this necklace pretty? It's made from orange tagua which is a vegetable alternative to ivory. Beautiful and yet it doesn't eff with elephants! Happy Earth Day! [$200, GreenWithGlamour.com]…

Crave: Secret Heart Necklace

Some of us aren’t into wearing lovey-dovey jewelry that prominently features hearts -- it’s just not our style. So it’s cool that there's a heart secretly embedded in this necklace. Covert sappiness is hot. [Charles and Marie]…
