Jewelry designers reach to the sky and back to come up with great designs. And sometimes it brings them to turn things that we consume on a daily basis into fabulous jewelry. For health freaks and lovers of whimsical, here is the most beautiful vegetable jewelry of this planet!
Both pieces are by Jewellery Theatre, a Russian brand known for its stunning nature-inspired jewelry and in the middle is an antique Victorian piece.
BEAUTIFUL JEWELRY AS A REMINDER
Are you eating your daily dose of 200gr vegetables? I try so hard, but I have to admit; I am not. Not because I don’t like veggies, but the rest of my family aren’t such fans. We all know, however, how good they are for our health and body. I wonder; would wearing it, in the form of a beautiful piece of jewelry, help at all to appreciate it more? Or perhaps as a token, or a kind reminder? 😉

REALISTIC LOOKING VEGETABLE JEWELRY
Most people will agree that this yummy jewelry for health freaks looks absolutely stunning. It’s gorgeous in all its details, and just like a realistic painting, there is not much room for mistakes. People are familiar with the looks and the form of the object.
So anything that isn’t just perfect is detectable and pops out immediately. It doesn’t matter if you are a connoisseur of fine jewelry or not. Details, measure, composition, we know it all too well. Referring to the world of painters once more, one goes big by creating something realistic yet out of proportions, or one imitates reality as closely as possible.

VEGETABLE JEWELRY, A BELOVED THEME
When I started to select jewelry for this blog, I came across many pieces of jewelry. First of all, you need to know that most of the jewelry presented in this blog is one of a kind pieces. They are made by artists who are internationally recognized for their skills and their designs. Unique and therefore often also collectibles.
Many pieces didn’t grasp that ”wow” feeling at all, some were ugly ( in my opinion), while still being made in gold and diamonds. I also would like to mention that this theme of healthy fine vegetable jewelry isn’t something that we invented today. It’s been around for a long time, and that means that there is a world of novelty vintage jewelry out there. If you do like the subject, I would advise you to check out auctions, sites, and retailers that sell this kind of jewelry.

GET INSPIRED AND CELEBRATE JEWELRY DESIGN
And last but not least, this blog and the jewelry it contains is to celebrate the beauty and diversity of jewelry design. Maybe by looking at these gorgeous pieces, you feel more inspired to dare something different, the next time you are looking at jewelry. And listen; on Etsy or in fashion jewelry there is a lot of choices too. My advice is to look at the quality for your money, whatever the budget and to go for either genuinely realistic and well made or funny, whimsical, artistically out of proportion. Trust your own eyes, and you will see the differences between beautiful and -not so much- design too!
