Bugs and Beasties

Many jewelry designers are showing insect and creature jewelry created out of diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, and other precious stones. Town and Country magazine has featured examples as have many other magazines. I jumped for joy when I was at the Anthropologie store in SoHo recently and saw an entire case of these beauties. Trust me, they are stunning in person, and start at $28, instead of thousands of dollars. My favorite is the octopus ring. What's yours?

Aren't these the cutest? And lovely that they aren't too expensive so everybody can have their own little bug.

I'm googling anthropologie jewelry as fast as my struggling little fingers can go! These are amazing!

oh WOW - I just looked at the website and this is amazing (they have so many more pieces they don't even list under the "nature" section for some reason). Why, why, why don't I have infinite amounts of money???

The last one, the gold frog, would be PERFECT for links! I'd rock those little guys, that's for sure!

Scott-I was typing that just as they announced American Idol-I meant to say the frogs would make great cuff links.

Averill-Love that necklace too!

Ooo...I think I'm going to be needing a jeweled octopus ring very badly!

I spent the day with a friend who cleverly added two brooches to a pair of sandals, one a starfish and the other some sort of octopus - I loved that they were different...
