Thanks to “True Blood,” “Twilight,” and a host of other vampire-themed TV shows, movies and books, there’s not a girl out there (OK, there are maybe a few) who doesn’t dream of having a romantic liaison with a vampire. Jewelry designers have been inspired by blood-suckers as well. Previously, we’ve featured a vampire bite necklace, and then there’s this dripping blood necklace. Now, designer Carmen Zambrano has taken the trend one step further with this “Bloody Jewelry” necklace in silver. It’s spooky but chic, goth but discreet. Your vampire lover will love it.

Aww, we remember when we had a BFF necklace just like this one … er, actually, upon closer inspection, this Topshop doodad isn’t at all about memorializing your everlasting best friend love, but rather about ripping any pleasant sentiments to shreds. So, what, you give this to people you know you’re going to break up with? That’s not very nice. [Topshop] Keep reading »
While we love to accessorize our outfits, sometimes we get a little lazy and just keep the same necklace on for weeks. But as long as the piece is something like this One Kiss by Cindy Crawford necklace, wearing it for days on end wouldn’t be a problem at all. The necklace features various colorful gems — citrine, garnet, and lemon quartz — so it goes with everything, meaning we can be negligent accessorizers and still look polished.
WIN THIS! We’re giving away a One Kiss By Cindy Crawford necklace provided by JCPenney, but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us the story of your first kiss (abridged versions, please) by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, May 27. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner Friday, May 28. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. (Read the official rules.) Good luck!

As the stylist for “Sex and the City,” Patricia Field has the chance to share her eclectic style with the world through Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha, creating trends and obsessions for women all over the world. A perfect example is the infatuation with nameplate necklaces, which, pre-Carrie, were seen as slightly trashy, but quickly became a fan favorite when SJP wore them. With the upcoming sequel, the fashion stylist has been hard at work, mixing variations of Halston creations in with a few of her own current favorites. Recently, Pat shared her thoughts about which trends “Sex and the City 2″ would inspire, one of which is a four-leaf clover necklace that Carrie wears in a few scenes. Pat Field is capitalizing off the trend she’s sure to create and designed a clover necklace for her Payless line. So, if you decide not to purchase the $56 to $72 clover necklace from Pat’s store, you can have a charm like Carrie’s for a more reasonable $12.99 from Payless. [PR Newswire] Keep reading »

Australian jewelry brand Chewed by Tuesday creates precious metal pieces “based on random items that people chew. But aren’t meant to chew.” Handmade in Melbourne, the first offering by designer Vivienne Gibson is a sterling silver pen cap based on the classic Bic pen’s cap. Depending on your taste, the necklace is available in chewed and unchewed varieties. What chomped objects will she turn into jewelry next, stirring sticks or fingernails?

This groovy Beaded Cluster Necklace reminds us of some kind of Martha Stewart holiday decoration–in the best way possible. But this piece of artwork is way cooler and more functional since we actually get to wear it on our necks. Did we mention how affordable it is? Now that’s a good thing.
Last week, we asked you to share your style advice in exchange for an Anna Beck Designs Kecil necklace. Everyone can benefit from a little help in the fashion department, and you guys wrote up some awesome tips that’ll help us get dressed in the morning, but bellarose‘s comment was our favorite:
Don’t wear anything you wouldn’t want to be caught in an accident or disaster wearing. You never know what could happen during your day. Always look and feel your best! Your apartment could catch on fire and the only clothes you would be left with would be the ones you are wearing — hope you’re looking cute and comfy!
Thanks for commenting, and don’t forget to enter this week’s contest! Keep reading »
