Chocolate On A Chain. Edible Jewelry by Wendy Mahr

Jewelry designer Wendy Mahr has a small sampling of real edible jewelry amongst her other gemstone jewelry offerings. Real chocolate covered malted milk balls are decorated with real edible gold leaf and turned into a ring, a pair of earrings and three different necklaces. The yummy gems are paired with non-edible findings such as wire, cord and chain. And what’s really neat is that once you’ve eaten the chocolate, if you want to reuse/recycle what’s left after the chocolate’s gone, you can send it back and for prices from $25-$45 (depending upon the piece) +shipping and they’ll replace the chocolate with pearls, or other available stones for you.

Golden Chocolate Ring:

Everything is edible except for the wire and if you hold out and keep it safely tucked away, you can be the hit of the party several times.
For an additional $25+shipping, Wendy Mahr can reuse/recycle the wire into a new ring.
Price: $55

Chocolate Earrings:

Malted milk balls with edible gold leaf on gold-filled earwires. Tested in the mid-day Miami heat, the edible earrings did not melt.
Price: $55

Pretty Chocolate Necklace:

A gold filled chain with one edible real chocolate ball with edible gold leaf. Each additional ball is $10.
Price: $55

Children’s Chocolate Necklace on Golden Cord:

The children’s version of their Pretty Chocolate necklace.
Order them in bunches for party favors, but don’t eat the cord – it’s the only non-edible part.
Price: $30

Center of Attention Chocolate Necklace:

Gold filled wire and clasp and edible gold leaf make for a great malted milk ball fashion accessory.
Is it real? Yes. Will it melt? No, at least not when they were tested in the sweltering Miami heat. They smell great, look really pretty, and you can wear it several times, or until you eat them. (Please don’t eat the wire).
If you want to reuse/recycle after the chocolate’s days are over, you can send it back and for $45+shipping, they’ll replace the chocolate with pearls, or other available stones.
Price: $150

Packaging:

Ready for gift-giving, their edible earrings, ring or single necklaces come in this clear gift box finished with shimmering gold ribbon. Cost of box is included in shipping charges. Available for all edible jewelry items, except the 9-ball necklace which comes in a white wendy mahr jewelry box (not shown).

Moritz Glik’s Kaleidoscope Collection of Fine Gemstone Jewelry Shakes Things Up.

Moritz Glik jewelry

My new ‘wishlist’ item is a piece, any piece, from Moritz Glik’s latest jewelry collection, Kaleidoscope. A line of fine jewelry that takes ordinarily traditionally set gemstones and uses them in a very unconventional way. Earrings, necklaces, pendants and cuffs in which loose diamonds and gems of various colors and cuts tumble around in settings that are unlike most I have seen before. Read more

Newd Adhesive Jewelry for the Body from Italy’s Alessandro Masini.


Since I first introduced you to Italian brand NEWD in this post almost three years ago , the collection of safe self-adhesive jewelry has grown. With more more pieces and styles added to their five collections (and some no longer available), it was time to update my readers.


Newd was established in Florence in 2006 by Alessandro Masini. It’s the only company in the world that produces ‘Skin Jewels’; adhesive jewelry that is applied directly to the skin. Glamour, innovation, sensuality, femininity, creativity and individuality come together for an exciting and trendy product that really goes beyond all standards.

For those of you who don’t wish to permanently pierce or tattoo yourself , NEWD is a fun alternative for body ornamentation. They carry simple geometric shapes in various sizes, the requisite trendy shapes such as butterflies and hearts, and some bolder and more unusual pieces. White, rose, and yellow gold, polished or satin finished, gold-plated, enameled, embellished with pearls, Swarovksi crystals, precious stones and more can be applied on your back, neckline, arms, belly or wherever you deem desirable.

They have five collections of different shapes, styles and metals. Some are just simple silhouettes, some are adorned with Swarovski crystals and others with dangling gems. Here are just a few:










Once only available in Italy, you can purchase directly from NEWD here.

Unearthly Commitment: Out Of This World Wedding Rings Made of Gold That Went To Space.


50 sets of rings known as SWR-50th Anniversary Collection were inspired by the 50th anniversary of first human space flight which took place on April 12, 1961. The collection will be created in cooperation with jewelry designers from all over the world.

On May 20, 7:24 (MDT) the first set of space wedding rings were sent in space in a suborbital sounding rocket in New Mexico, USA. The flight went smoothly and the professionally secured package containing one set of wedding rings and some gold reached the space and came to Earth sound and safe.

The first 10 sets of rings available now will be made from the gold that was flown in space in the same capsule as the first Space Wedding Rings SWR-001.

Each set of Space Wedding Rings will be assigned a unique serial number and engraved with the SpaceWed logo. The rings will be sold in custom designed, space-themed packaging and will include a Certificate of Space Flight, as well as documentation of the rocket launch.


From the beginning of June you will be able to place an ORDER for the RINGS AVAILABLE NOW or PRE-ORDER the rings which will go in space in the next flight by the end of 2011.
