I need some weird, quirky, unique, strange jewellery for my sister.

I've posted in chat too, just looking for more replies smile

I'm getting my sister a wee present because she's been fantastic the past
few months. She's been there for me all throughout my unplanned pregnancy, uni stress and is now helping me plan my wedding at very short notice. I really want something meaningful and unusual for her. She has a mocking-jay pocket-watch that pings open when you click a button on the side, a a Tardis lapel pin, a necklace that is a wee jar with gem stones in it... quirky things.

She doesn't have her earlobes pierced but she does have her cartilage done at the top of her ear twice.

I'm struggling to find something she might like and to be honest, I don't really know what to search for. Does anyone have any ideas? She's 16, if that helps. She really is quite strange (in a fabulous way) and loves really weird jewellery.

This probably already got suggested then but I'd try tatty Devine or Les Neriedes

And etsy is always worth a look.

Bloody hell, I love all of those suggestions. I'm going to be bankrupt. Thank you smile

Lydia does do amazing quirky jewellery! Shottle bop is fab, the nizblian is the silver and custom stuff smile

I absolutely love this. Opinions?

I love Celtic jewellery Truffle but my sister isn't too keen. Thanks though smile lovely stuff!!

I think I've found the perfect ring here. Sapphire is her birth stone and she's gay (and very proud of it) so the rainbow is perfect.

Oh I've been eyeing up the wishbone one for weeks!

I have some wonderful things from Lost Apostle The couple who run the shop and design and make all the jewellery are amazing and really friendly, highly reccomended.

What about this skeleton key pendant? The detailing on both sides is incredible, and its size makes i quite "focal"...

I have this magic lamp pendant on a thick Singapore chain, and it gets lots of compliments for being unusual. Again, detailing is lovely.

Final suggestion is this Easter Island head, which I really like but don't think I could pull off.

PS - The ring is absolutely beautiful, but I think it would be best to wait until she's definitely fully grown. Eternity rings with recessed stones can almost never be resized without destabilising all of the settings so the stones fall out. My fingers definitely went down several ring sizes between 16 and 23 (and my feet got smaller hmm), even though the rest of me has stayed pretty much the same since my mid teens, so it's probably worth taking into account.

I'd suggest Etsy but there'll be an awful lot to trawl through!
