I couldn’t help but fall in love with the adorable Ran-Ban inspired necklace Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting wore for her Cosmopolitan cover shoot (May 2014 issue). The subtext stated that the necklace was by “Jason of Beverly Hills”, but listed no price (most of us know that’s typically code for “expensive”). You can check out the version Kaley is wearing here; no price is listed on their website either, but the white-diamond detailing leads me to believe it’s probably more than I’d hope (or could afford) to spend.
Fast forward to a quaint street festival I visited during my recent vacation to Nova Scotia. My eyes scanned over a sea of cute pendants: infinity symbols, dolphins, hearts…aviator sunglasses!! I don’t think I could get them in my hands fast enough. While they are a little different from Kaley’s, the concept is much the same. Like Kaley’s version, the pendant is on a silver ball-chain, and the back of the sunglasses have “arms”, making the pendant 3-D. The main differences are that mine are sans diamonds (or even cubic zirconia), and are in the style of aviators instead of wayfarers (which I love since I prefer, and actually wear, aviators anyway). My cute new pendant cost me just $15.00 (doesn’t get more budget-friendly than that!). While the shop I purchased them from doesn’t have a website, you can find a large selection of reasonably priced sunglass pendants on Etsy here!
