Bone Chilling Jewelry

Is it me? Or is the jewelry world getting a little macabre these days? From Jaws jewelry to creepy crawly couture, designers are letting go of the Cinderella diamond fairy tale and are embracing Freddy Krueger fashion instead.

Case in point? Bone jewelry.

Blogger Nicole Keating from W Magazine spotted this crazy cuff designed by Turkish jewelry designer, Alp Sagnak aptly named, “The Bone Bracelet”. He used a dozen oppossum tibia and fibula bones, which he says “in Turkish are unique because they are the only bones with two joints.”

Throw in oxidized silver, 24-karat gold, rubies and diamonds and you have a $10,500 bone chiller for the perfect goth goddess to grab for their collection.

But Sagnak isn’t the only ‘bone collector’ out there. Trend Hunter features designs from the “Churchyard Human Bone Collection” made from human teeth, wrist bones – even bones from the human foot!

I don’t know about you, but I’m not really interested in accessorizing with poor Mary’s metatarsals (rest her soul). Ew.

What star do you think is the most likely to bust out with bone bling on the red carpet? Maybe True Blood‘s vampire queen, Evan Rachel Wood? Johnny Depp in collar bone cuff links?

Look Sharp With Jaws Jewelry

Jewelry, hounds? I have another ‘lower jaw drop’ jewelry moment to share with you. Literally.

To celebrate “Shark Week”, Disney Couture and Discovery Channel are featuring a jaws-inspired yellow gold ring that’s selling like fishcakes.

The golden gums are the perfect way to weigh in with the statement ring trend (see yesterday’s blog for more) and at only $40 could work well solo or stacked.

In other lower-jaw-dropping news, Liz Taylor is apparently ‘diving’ into marriage again with her longtime companion, Jason Winters. This time she’s bringing a $3 million diamond turban as an escort. Jewelry.com reports the headgear will feature a 30-carat white diamond with two 40-carat yellow canary diamonds on either side.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water…
