Lena Dunham Gave Taylor Swift a Cat Pendant Necklace, So Here Are 7 Kitten Chains For Your Feline Enthusiast Bestie
Thoughtful gift-giving is a talent that some people are just born with, like psychic abilities or synesthesia. Apparently, Lena Dunham falls into this charmed category of the human population. Lena Dunham gave Taylor Swift a cat pendant necklace for her birthday, featuring a portrait of Swift's endearingly grumpy feline Meredith Grey cast in resin. Swift was naturally obsessed with the gift, dubbing it her "new most cherished possession" in an Instagram caption. Yep, that sounds like the assessment that this present warrants.
The necklace looks like an especially lucky flea market find, but it probably cost the equivalent of a few limbs. Celebrity jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth, who was reportedly commissioned to make the custom piece, has necklaces on the Barneys website that retail from about $12,000 to $80,000. So, maybe in another lifetime.
While you may not be able to afford an exact replica of this necklace from where Dunham got it, there are plenty of exciting alternatives that one can find in the Etsy-verse that closely approximate this baby. Here are seven cat pendants within your price range that you can snag for your own fellow cat lady BFF today.
