Girls Don’t Like Snails

I don’t know what the stylist for this shoot had in mind when she chained a fleet of what appear to be living snails to this model’s neck, but the idea of wearing it makes me shudder. [Vice] Keep reading »

A Stylish Necklace That Opens Bottles

Warm weather is imminent, we swear, and with it comes one of our favorite pastimes: backyard barbecues. If you’re playing host (or want to be a helpful guest), don’t make everyone search the area — or run inside — for a bottle opener each time they need a new drink. Instead, when you put on your party clothes, accessorize your outfit with this steel pendant necklace that does double-duty as a bottle opener. Not only will it help you keep the masses happy, but it’s cute to boot. [$62, CXXVI] Keep reading »

A Bling-Less Bib Necklace

Bet you don’t have anything like this in your jewelry chest. Aldo gives a softer side to the bib necklace by incorporating these embroidered fabric discs with a chunky gold chain. We’re loving the geometric flower designs that have a slight Scandinavian vibe going on. Just goes to show you that a statement necklace doesn’t necessarily need ostentatious bling to make it special.

This time of year, we’ve got jewelry on the brain, and we wouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth if, say, we were presented with a shiny new bauble.

UPDATE! The winner of the Leslie Green Necklace is lea322 for this comment:

“One year, when I was in high school, my mom gave me a delicate gold necklace for Valentine’s Day. The pendant is a little heart with a small pearl in the middle. It’s extremely subtle and understated, but I love it. My mom always made Valentine’s Day special with a gift for my sister and I. She always shows us how much she loves us, but with all the added pressure of “relationships” on V-Day, she made sure to do something just a little more special to make sure we knew that with or without a guy, we were loved. That necklace is something I will always love and appreciate.”

Thank you for all your sweet (and not-so sweet) stories. Keep reading »

Win This! Erica Weiner Skeleton Key Necklace

Happy almost-Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re single or taken, The Frisky wants to be your Valentine. Look for a contest each day leading up to Feb. 14. Prizes will include makeup, books, lingerie, jewelry, and more, but each one only lasts a day—enter now!

Typical Valentine’s Day jewelry is big on hearts, and while that shape is quite nice, we like the idea of keys as a symbol of affection even better. See, we already have a blood pumper of our own, so why do we need another one? A key, on the other hand, means that someone wants to let you inside his life — whether it opens his apartment door, or his heart. [$45, Elsewares]


We’re giving away one Erica Weiner skeleton key necklace from Elsewares, but you have to work if you want it. Do you think you should let your significant other know about the skeletons in your closet? Share your advice in the comments by 3:39 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 6 (that’s tomorrow!). We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!

UPDATE! The winner of the Erica Weiner necklace is taralee for this comment:

I think it really just depends on what the “skeletons” are. I really don’t care about who my husband boned (pun intended) before we got together or how many times he drank excessively and did something regrettable. The past is the past and people change… sometimes. Things that I would like to know about: STDs (current and history), previous convictions to include: rape, murder, assault, etc etc etc and whether or not they live in their mother’s basement. Hey… a girl has got to start somewhere.

Thank you for all your comments! Keep reading »

I Love You To Death

This Loved necklace from Yassai 7 reminds you that now, more than ever, it’s time to make love, not war. The letters may be made out of high-powered artillery, but the message is 100 percent hippie. The pendant comes on a 22-inch gunmetal chain, and it’s $75. If you like the urban guerrilla girl theme, you may like Yassai 7′s brass knuckle-and-peace necklace, their fighter planes on a chain, or this shout-out for peace in the Middle East. Who knew being stylish could be so political? [The Cut] Keep reading »

A.S.I.S. Crochet Chain Necklace

Sometimes, when it’s really cold outside, our jewelry drops so much in temperature that wearing it gives us the chills. Since we don’t need another reason to shiver, we’ll be accessorizing with the crochet-covered chains from A.S.I.S. (Angela Spencer’s Irresistible Stuff) for the next few months. With cotton yarn covering most of the chunky chain, it’s jewelry that’s all bundled up for winter. [$86, Edge Of Urge] Keep reading »

Pearls—What’s It To You?

According to The Moment (and a large handful of designer runway shows, included Mr. Marc Jacobs) pearls are B-A-C-K, back! Mostly, I find them sort of ho-hum/blah and way too prim and proper, especially when not jazzed up in some way (like Lanvin does with it’s gorge pearls-wrapped-in-black-lace necklaces). But try as I may to avoid them like the plague, pearls are on their way back, so everyone should get ready for pearl sightings. What do you think of pearls? Will you resurrect your strands or buy more to add to your jewelry rotation?
