What if I told you that you could get your hands on the real Slytherin’s locket without a dodgy trip to Borgin and Burkes or that not all of the Time-Tuners were destroyed during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries? The Noble Collection is sharing some magic with the muggle world with a collection of Harry Potter replica jewelry, featuring the sinister locket, a Time-Turner necklace, and more.
The pieces are classified as “prop replicas” on the Noble Collection’s website but they all double as wearable jewelry, including rings, brooches, earrings, and necklaces. The selection ranges from instantly recognizable items, such as a Felix Felicis pendant and Xenophilius Lovegood’s Deathly Hallows necklace to more obscure items, such as Narcissa Malfoy’s spider earrings or Hermione’s red crystal necklace that she wore at Bill and Fleur’s wedding in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
The fact that they are prop replicas means they are incredibly detailed and mostly movie-accurate, making them perfect for cosplay. Even if you’re not into cosplaying, they’re also a dream for any Potterhead who wants to incorporate their favorite movie moments into their everyday wardrobe. There’s something for every style: Some pieces are big and flashy, such as Slytherin’s locket with green stones slithering into an “S” shape, while some are more subtle, such as the Horcrux ring, which features a gold band plated in 24-karat gold and a black stone. No one even has to know that you’re wearing the Horcrux that almost killed Dumbledore and shriveled his hand up, you monster.
I should say that some of the necklace chains and cases feel a little flimsy, so I don’t know how well they will hold up. That being said, no need to hide the pieces away in a desk or drawer when you’re not wearing them — the display cases they come with are just as beautiful as the treasures. Some of the cases look like miniature, wooden jewelry cabinets with mirrored backs,, and others have the familiar triangular shape of the Deathly Hallows.
The next time I’m invited to the Yule Ball, I know where to get my bling.
