Jewelry Based on Movies and Movie Characters - Ideas for Gift Giving

Daytime in Fork, Washington - Labradorite and Crystal Necklace by

We all know the obvious pieces of movie based jewelry – the “One Ring” from Lord of the Rings, jewelry with pictures of characters from the Twilight series, and of course all the jewelry based on Disney classics and Harry Potter come immediately to mind.   There is another type of jewelry that is movie based, and that is the more subtle, almost subliminal reference that can be found in some uniquely designed, original pieces of jewelry available in craft shops on the web.

For example, a pirate’s treasure map can bring to mind Johnny Depp and the Pirates of the Caribbean  movie series.  A wizard can be from either Dumbledore from Harry Potter or Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings [and soon to be released Hobbit movie].

Twilight movies and books can be represented by the most obvious Goth/Vampire styles or by something a little more understated, like a necklace that is evocative of the weather in Folk, Washington, or a deep moonlit night sky.  Just be sure there is no silver in those pieces of jewelry – we don’t want  Edward to burn his fingers as he slips the necklace around Bella’s neck.

Whichever you choose, be sure the jewelry is well made, original, unique, and special to you.
