12 Book Inspired Jewelry Pieces From 'Harry Potter,' 'Hunger Games,' And More
The Harry Potter books are my favorite things in the entire world. I have prints from the movie hanging on my wall, and I have Harry Potter themed jewelry (and a few other great book inspired jewelry pieces). I even have a Deathly Hallows tattoo (truly the ultimate book themed accessory) with the elder wand, resurrection stone, and invisibility cloak separated, instead of in their usual formation. (Usually I get asked, "what sorority are you in?" or "why do you have playstation buttons tattooed on your arm?") I'm a diehard Harry Potter fan, and it all started from the epic book series.
I know I'm not the only one who appreciates great book nerd accessories, either. Whether it's Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, or Percy Jackson, some book series powerfully resonate with readers, and wearing a piece of the story helps you feel more connected to it. Who hasn't pretended they are Katniss Everdeen at some point or another? Whatever it is, some books cultivate a huge fandom. So, why not show off your love of these stories to the world? Rock a necklace inspired by the Harry Potter series or a ring that boasts the crest of the Starks of Winterfell. Wear them, and show the world that you are indeed a literary nerd and you are proud to be one.
"Mischief Managed" With Harry Potter Ring
If you aren't into tattooing yourself to show off your Harry Potter love like I was, a more subtle choice would be this awesome spiral ring. Pretend you are Fred and George Weasley and are up to no good: "mischief managed" is hand stamped into the outside of the aluminum ring, while a lightning bolt is stamped on the inside. Perfect for everyday wear, and one buyer said, "I so impressed with the entire piece and I can't stop recommending it to every Potter fan I know."
The Wand Chooses The Wizard
Mr. Ollivander said, "the wand chooses the wizard," but just this once, you can pick your own. Will you choose the wand of Harry Potter, Dumbledore, Hermione Granger or Lord Voldemort to wear around your neck? This 19-inch silver necklace comes with a 3-inch silver replica of the most memorable wands from the Harry Potter series. Will you choose ultimate power with the Elder Wand? Or will you choose evil, and go for Lord Voldemort's wand?
Potterheads: Pick Your Favorite Prop
If you're a Potterhead, odds are you have a favorite item from the books. Mine happens to be the Deathly Hallows (hence the tattoo), but what if playing Quidditch is what you dream about? The Golden Snitch would probably be your favorite item. If Harry was the character that you loved the most, than perhaps Harry's glasses are the thing that makes you think of the series the most. And if you have a specific book that made a huge impact on you, like The Prisoner of Azkaban, perhaps Hermione's time turner brings back the most happy memories. Well, now you can show the world which part you thought was the best with a beautifully crafted necklace. The charms are small and simple, making it a great everyday necklace.
Channel Your Inner Khaleesi
The Mother of Dragons is a strong, independent, powerful woman. This Dragon Ear Cuff will leave you feeling as confident as Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons. The official seal of the House Targaryen is a dragon, and as you know, Daenerys has three children, her dragons. Now you can have one, too, with this ear cuff. Plus, your ears don't even have to be pierced to wear it!
Which House Do You Pledge Yourself To?
Do you pledge your allegiance to the House of Stark? Did you support Rob, The King Of The North? Show everyone that you support the Stark's claim with this sterling silver crest ring.

It comes in sizes 8-12 (half sizes available).

Everyone will know that you support Katniss Everdeen and the rest of the rebel gang with this gorgeous hand woven choker. The silver necklace is elegant with the Mockingjay being the clear focus. It is a beautiful way to show off your love for The Hunger Games. You can wear it as a statement piece (the statement not only being the style, but that you are a Tribute).

Show off the Best Quote Ever From The Fault in Our Stars
It isn't hard to connect with character Hazel Grace Lancaster. And its hard not to get swept up in the love story with Augustus Water, who author John Green beautifully crafted. Perhaps the most memorable quote from the book comes alive on these two bracelets. One bracelet says "Okay?" while its mate answers the question, "Okay." The design is hand stamped into the metal. The bracelets are made out of aluminum and will not tarnish or turn your skin green!
Pretend You're A Shadowhunter From The Mortal Instruments
Remind yourself that "light can be found even among the darkest shadows," like the shadowhunters do in The Mortal Instruments series, by wearing your own Witchlight.

Each necklace is handmade, and if anything breaks for any reason, the seller will replace the whole necklace free of charge.
