Japanese jewelry modeled after our favorite foods? Yes please.
Do you ever find yourself getting all gussied up for a night on the town when you suddenly think, “man, if only I had a spaghetti necklace to go with my little black dress?” Those worrying dark days are SO over. Japanese plastics manufacture Hatanaka has started making super realistic food replicas that can be bought as necklaces, rings, and even hair clips. We would like to define this jewelry line with one simple word: genius.
Considering I’m one to shy away from flashy sparkles, if I could get someone to propose to me with a stack of pancakes ring, I’d know for sure our love was true.
Hatanaka is a company that specializes in producing super realistic plastic food for restaurants. You know, the kind you see in display windows that never appear to grow old and moldy. The company has recently branched out into the jewelry market, too, and the results are seriously amazing. You probably didn’t know you wanted a hamburger pendant necklace until RIGHT now.
Yes, their website is entirely in Japanese, but don’t worry, there’s a nifty button at the top of the page to translate it into English. If this sounds like exactly the new kind of bling to add to your jewelry collection, they’ve got instructions for overseas orders at the ready. Everything runs between the $15 and $40 mark (that is, after you convert everything from Yen to dollars), which is reasonably priced considering there should never be a price on wearing a bacon wrapped hot dog necklace.
Due to its high popularity, many items are currently sold out, but you can add your name to the waiting list for when they become available again. In the meantime, think about how you’ll be the envy of everyone with spaghetti earrings, to match your spaghetti statement necklace.
Also, don’t forget your beans and rice headband.
Or this bacon ring.
And of course, these ice cream horns.
OK, one more these pizza earrings.
OK, no, we lied. Seriously just one more. This donut hair clip.
OK, we’re done now.
