In spring 2016, over 47 million Americans attended live theatre events within the last month. Whether it’s a parade in the park or a full-scale Broadway production, there’s nothing more magical than a Disney production on stage. But even if you’ve only seen the films, you know there’s something special about what Walt created. And now, you can carry a piece of that enchantment with you always — by wearing a beautiful piece of Disney-inspired jewelry around your neck, finger, or wrist.
For example, you could get your hands on the stunning Fantasyland Castle Necklace that recently landed on the official Shop Disney website. Definitely not for the understated customer, this giant bejeweled castle will set you back $175 — but it is made of real sterling silver and comes in rose gold, silver, and gold finishes.
Interestingly, silver and gold actually form in star formations (known as supernovae); at the end of their lives, stars — which are 10 times the size of our sun — explode as supernovae and produce these elements. This means you can, quite literally, wish upon a star when you secure this adjustable chain around your neck.
If you’re into something without a lot of bling but that’s still undeniably Disney, Pandora just came out with something that will make a “charm”-ing addition to your bracelet. You can find a new bead made to resemble the iconic Partners Statue — a large-scale likeness of Walt Disney holding hands with Mickey Mouse that greets park visitors — at your local Pandora retailer. This charm joins an already substantial collection of Disney beads that cover just about every beloved film and character. You can find the entire Disney x Pandora collaboration on the Pandora website.
And if you’re more of an Alex and Ani person, never fear: that company’s got your Disney fix covered, too. The brand launched a gorgeous line inspired by the new A Wrinkle in Time movie that’ll appeal to strong women and girls everywhere. Storm Reid (who plays Meg in the film) actually designed a now-sold-out bracelet bearing the words “I am a warrior” — the proceeds of which were donated to First Book, an organization that provides quality education to all U.S. children regardless of their situation. Even if you haven’t yet seen the movie, you’ll probably love these appealing and empowering pieces.
Of course, classic Disney is all about romance. For those who want to pop the question with a bit of magic, Zales’s collection of engagement rings inspired by Belle, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Ariel, Jasmine, Tinker Bell, Snow White, Elsa, Tiana, Merida, Mulan, and Aurora are sure to make you swoon. They range in price from a mere $200 to over $7,000 a pop, making it possible for you to get your happily ever after without totally breaking the bank.
These new jewelry collections prove that Disney isn’t just for kids anymore. For those who want to wear their nostalgic heart on their sleeve (or around their neck or on their ring finger), these pieces are just perfect.
