There has been an increase in animal and critter jewelry lately. Have you noticed? It kind of started off with the enamel bangles that were zebra or leopard that became popular. Now, the trend has transformed into something less tacky, where there is a subtle creature encrusted in diamonds on a necklace or ring. I’ve seen owls, panthers, turtles, crabs, and many snakes. I found a few favorites that I would wear…these are two little birds and an alligator! I don’t necessarily recommend wearing them all together though!
The first little bird comes from designer Elisa Solomon. This necklace is so charming and I just love the yellow gold/turquoise combination. That precious metal and stone combo creates such a pretty look. The bird has a diamond for an eye set in 18k yellow gold. The price on this necklace is $600.
Do you have a thing for Lacoste polos? That cute little embroidered alligator? Well here’s a golden and diamond encrusted version of that same alligator! Lena Wald has created this unique necklace, which is 14k yellow gold and 16″ long. It is $242 and can be found at Twist.
I love this little enamel birdie ring designed by eclectic designer Solange Azagury-Partridge. I wish I knew price details. On her website, you can view her interesting jewelry designs–like none other! She is located in London, so I’m not even sure if her pieces can be found for purchase here in the U.S.
