Let's take a look at three popular examples of jewelry from current pop culture that we all know from the screen or the page, but that never actually existed in real life. And of course, we'll offer a suggestion on how you can integrate the fictional look into your real life wardrobe!
The Heart of the Ocean from Titanic
You know the necklace - a stunning blue diamond surrounded by smaller white diamonds worn by the young Rose Dewitt Bukater after it was gifted to her by her fiance Cal Hockley. The Heart of the Ocean was said to have belonged to King Louis XVI of France. Of course, this over the top necklace was created just for the movie but it does bear some similarities with the Hope Diamond and many say it served as inspiration for the moviemakers.
If you're shopping for something just as grand, dramatic, and velvety blue (but aren't quite looking to spend what Cal Hockley spent), we recommend shopping our Tanzanite Jewelry collection.
The One Ring from The Lord of the Rings
Any jewelry lover understands the need to hold a piece of jewelry while staring longing at it (and perhaps murmuring "my precious" over and over again), but The One Ring is on another level entirely. The ring appears to look like any other plain gold band until it is cast into the fire which reveals inscriptions that read "One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them."
Ok, so perhaps your jewelry doesn't need to be quite so...evil... but a classic gold band never goes out of style (unless it's been thrown into the fires of Mount Doom) so check out our selection of beautiful gold and gold over bands and find something that will bring you happiness.
The Mockingjay Pin from The Hunger Games
Jewelry that brought on a revolution? Talk about powerful! The Mockingjay Pin was worn by heroine Katniss Everdeen after it was gifted to her by her friend Madge when she entered the arena to battle for life. The pin would grow into a symbol used by the oppressed to overthrow the ruling class.
You may not be looking to start a revolution (or maybe you want to start a fashion revolution), but bird brooches are a stylish touch to any ensemble! Brooches are coming back into style, so consider adding one to your coat, sweater, scarf, or handbag!
