Bling and Buy has been a bit of a mixture of kooky, expensive and classic pieces recently, so I think it's about time we revisited an old favourite: Kitsch.
This Tiny Pearl Ring in a Gift Box Necklace ($16) is from Etsy seller PenelopesPorch. The delicate little ring is adorned with a sizeable pearl, and wrapped up in faux wrapping paper and a bowed polka dot box. The whole charm hangs off a blue bead necklace, although you can have the colour of the chain changed.
It's the box that initially drew me into this design, which is reminiscent of a luxury box of chocolates. A further browse of the shop revealed this mini retro toaster and pop tart necklace ($14.50) below.
Like most of the Etsy sellers, PenelopesPorch is based in the USA (California), but postage is really affordable at $3.50.
Are you a fan of kitsch jewellery? What do you think about these pieces?
