novelty-jewelry-shopping-ideas-latest-fashion-jewllery-2017Hello beauties! At times we all aspire to try a few out-of-the-box things. A few things that will make heads turn and few things and that will make us look unique! Novelty jewelry definitely is one of them! We have already written about novelty bags and novelty shoe embellishments were amongst out top shoe trends. Our craze for novelty things does not end there and so here’s one more – novelty jewelry.

Novelty jewelry doesn’t have to be cheap neon-glowing bands you get on the Fourth of July. We are seeing many amazing designs like animal shaped, flower shaped, etc. in the designer collections and high-street brands. And yeah! The designers are inspired by nature, galaxy, food and many more unique themes. I’d love to design novelty jewelry myself and my inspiration would be home & decor. Imagine cushion shaped earrings, table shaped necklace and candle shaped bracelet! 🙂 Lol. Sounds crazy, right?

Let’s shop the bestest novelty jewelry for your bold outfits!

Animal-Inspired Jewelry

From snakes to spiders to owls, animal inspired novelty jewelry is a must-try! Many brands like Swarovski, Cartier, Ralph Lauren, etc. have come up with animal shaped jewelry that would be great both for casual outfits and parties. The elephant shaped diamond earrings by Cartier are perfect for parties whereas the owl shaped studs by Zonewetwo would cool for a casual day out.
