Check Out the New Game of Thrones Jewelry Collection

Check Out the New Game of Thrones Jewelry Collection

So, I never got to ride the Game of Thrones pedicab at SXSW. (Life is hard.) However, this news is making me feel a bit better: HBO has partnered with Phyrrha for a line of Game of Thrones jewelry! And I’m all about channeling my inner Natalie Dormer. The Hollywood Reporter says the new collection will include sterling silver and bronze talisman necklaces and rings. A talisman! I always wanted a talisman. The items will range in price from $98 to $900. The talismans feature the sigils of the Houses of Westeros. Phyrrha says the collection will arrive online and in stores on April 4, just in time for the HBO premiere of the fourth season on April...

Insects are my biggest phobia. Show me a mattress in the street, I’ll cross to the other side. Tell me that Starbucks uses crushed bugs to create red dye for their blended beverages, I’ll stick to drip coffee. So, clearly I’m not ready to start pinning any bug carcasses to my bodice… We all know Mayan women have worn decorated live beetles for centuries. Whatever. They also predicted the world was going to end. It seems, though, modern-day women in Mexico have revived the practice. The stones are glued to a Mexican Tenebrionid beetle who is tied to a pin by use of a little chain leash so the beetle can’t get away. The result is what is called a Maquech Brooch. Tenebrionid beetles eat rotting wood and apples. Yes. I’m...

Instant Obsession: Meet Plukka’s Budget-Friendly Luxe Jewelry

Instant Obsession: Meet Plukka’s Budget-Friendly Luxe Jewelry

What do I love? Saving money and yet looking like I didn’t. And so I live for flash sales, off-price retailers, and, now, the beauty that is Plukka. A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited to a breakfast preview in honor of jewelry e-tailer Plukka, and let me tell you — it’s GENIUS. In short, Plukka  starts out by designing a piece and embarking on the same sort of flash sale you may see on an Ideeli or Gilt type of site – however, it’s a single piece that’s available for a day or two, and as more people buy it, the price goes down! Ultimately, the final price is decided by the amount of people who purchased it — but everyone who did purchase it will get the same low price. This makes everyone a winner –...
