When I was a child playing video games, I always wanted some t-shirts, collectibles, and jewelry themed around games. Now, as a voracious book lover I have a wealth of inspirational jewelry and literary jewelry at my fingertips to wear and proudly show off my adoration for books and literature. These top Etsy sellers have some of the best book themed jewelry around so if, like me, you’re in serious need for some excellent jewelry for book lovers, you’ll find it from these guys.
‘Frankenstein’ by Literary Gifts UK
This stunning piece of inspirational jewelry not only boasts a fantastic Frankenstein quote in a lovely font, but the design of both the pendant and the chain looks like it belongs in that gothic 18th century world of Frankenstein. This is one of the most mesmerising pieces of literary jewelry I’ve seen; it seems to capture the very soul of Shelley’s monumental sci-fi novel.
Frankenstein is my favourite novel in the world. I’ve often thought about getting a Frankenstein tattoo but worried it would look too B-movie. And something even better is this outstanding piece of inspirational jewelry.
‘Literary Necklace’ by Mummybird Pretties
This piece of literary jewelry is handmade! This glass bauble on a chain of deep brass colouring is stunning. It has this ethereal, fairy tale magic that’s just irresistible. Each one of these literary necklaces holds a small, folded page from a romantic novel inside it, something to keep you feeling connected to literature and the power that it holds.
A lot of us hate to be without a book – we carry them in our bags, our jackets, even our back pockets. With one of these literary necklaces, it’s even easier to keep literature as close to your heart as possible, all day, every day. Forever.
‘Raven Pendant’ by Shimmer Creek
You see a raven, you think Poe. That’s not always the case, though. This pendant isn’t strictly for Poe fans; it’s just a great piece of book themed jewelry. That said, if you are a Poe fan, you’re going to love this piece of inspirational jewelry. And same goes if you’re a Lewis Carroll fan. Or if you just think ravens are cool (which they are).
This beautiful book necklace with its raven pendant has such an alluring blend of colours: the black crow, silver chain, and yellowed paper background. It’s flat-out gorgeous; and it is absolutely one of the best pieces of jewelry for book lovers.
