I have been a longtime devotee of the whimsical jewelry put forth by Los Angeles-based brand Little Rooms. Inspired by dollhouse miniatures, metropolitan cities, and an old world love of music, it comes as no shock that Ester Delug’s designs have graced the fingers of none other than Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, and a bevy of young Hollywood starlets who ride the fine line of punk and princess.

So, if you are looking for a one-of-a-kind holiday gift for the lovely lady in your life who takes delight in the far-fetched and loves powerful statement pieces, check out LR’s newest Cryptid Collection. The influence of sea myths and medieval folklore is obvious in Delug’s use of ancient shields (ear and shoe armor!), victory teeth (legend has it that heroes wore the slain beast as a symbolic keepsake), and bashful sea monsters, ultimately resulting in some seriously fabulous pieces.

Here are my must-have holiday picks:
1. Moat Monster Hoops, $68
2. Crocodile Moat Ring, $85
3. Lock Shield Bracelet, $98

All pieces available at, as well as these fine establishments:
