With the recent release of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child , collecting the full script of the two-part play by Jack Thorne, John Tiffany, and J.K. Rowling has led to one nostalgia-fueled time for me. If reading Cursed Child reignited your fannish feels as well, my advice would be to turn your sights onto geeky Harry Potter jewelry from Etsy to show off your love of all things Boy Who Lived.
Rowling recently revealed that Cursed Child would cap the Harry Potter series, ET Online reported, and that there are no immediate plans for a Cursed Child film. For now, this appears to be the end of the road for fans itching for new Potter material, save for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them film trilogy. But if there’s one universal trait among diehard fans, it’s the inability to give up hope.
Whether you’re into subtle pieces — I'm rocking a Slytherin house ring, myself — or more eye-catching accessories, a plethora of shops on Etsy offer merch made by fans, for fans. Well-chosen bling is not just an accessory, after all. It’s a way to connect to fellow Potter enthusiasts. So pour yourself a butter-beer and settle in. Here are 21 unique, wearable pieces with which to tell the world that you're a Potter fan.

2. Accio Keys Keychain
