Endless talk of all things sparkly.


Slightly buddha-obsessed, my sister and I were on a mission to find a good piece of jewelry featuring, none other than, the buddha himself. We wanted either a necklace or bracelet, something you couldn’t find in Forever 21 or Claire’s that would tarnish in three days. Fake jewelry is a waste of money for that reason.

We found a necklace, a pendant and a bracelet, although the bracelet is not real gold, we couldn’t resist its similarity to the peace sign bracelets seen recently on The Hills’ Stephanie Pratt. Check out our finds below!


This pendant is our favorite. Priced at $150, it is a good buy for being 14k gold and carved jade. It would look great on a short or long chain, depending on what you like. This juicy treasure may even bring you good luck, and can be purchased at c.h.a.r.m.

When we saw this necklace, we immediately wanted to take out our credit cards. Unfortunately, $420 is not in the budget. The buddha is made out of carved coral, with a mother-of-pearl leaf and turquoise bead dangling below. On a 14k gold chain with a lobster claw clasp, this little jigglypuff can be yours by going to Ylang|23 now!

This is the bracelet we found…wish the buddha was made out of 14k gold. [sad face] But if you’re into fake jewelry, he’s good as golden! Max & Chloe is the neat online shop where you can purchase this bracelet for $63 in any color you want!
