Sweet as Candy

The world of fashion sometimes crosses with the food industry to produce some interesting and often bizarre style ideas. More statement than fashion, these pieces make for a memorable ensemble but can’t really be worn to too many events. How many times would you really want to be caught on film wearing art for art’s sake?

The Rock Candy Ribbon Necklace offers us a much more practical take on foodie-inspired fashion. Made of rough rock crystal that looks like large sugar rock crystal, the necklace is a fun statement piece that won’t leave a sticky ring around your neck or compete with your outfit. Wearing a food look-alike is far more advantageous than actually wearing it, in this case. I also think the stones look like ice, no?

Tied at the nape of the neck with a lovely satin ribbon, it’s the perfect accessory for the hot summer days and nights. Perfect with the maxi dress or your bathing suit cover-up, this one’s a sweet keepsake that channels the current semi-precious stone trend. Better still, wrap it around your wrist a few times and enjoy it as a chunky bracelet. Summer accessorizing is so easy!
