On your marks, get set, consume: jewelry for the price of candy, a la Margot Robbie

More than two dozen major retailers in Britain have announced that they will not sell products such as sparkly, sequined Christmas baubles and baubles covered in glitter. In the United States, the trend might still be the talk of craft fairs this fall and winter.

Items such as glitter cornices, skirts, and chandeliers come in a rainbow of hues, and if you’re of childlike mind, you might think a child’s vision of Christmas is a snow-white spiral of trees, baubles, and presents.

The jewelry industry is not immune from the trend — save for iconic jewelry houses such as Tiffany & Co. and Cartier, all major jewelers have promised not to use glitter and/or fake “brands” as decorations, according to the Guardian. And thanks to anti-fraud efforts in the United States, shoppers have become more conscious about safeguarding their diamonds and other jewelry from scammers.

In the UK, budget department store B&M is selling a 12-inch Christmas bauble for $7.99, which is a whole lot cheaper than one that costs almost $450. Popsugar notes that the brand Conscious Jewelry is producing naturally-bleached artificial baubles that are all natural for that $200 tag.

Once you pay, you’ll be doing a double take.

UPDATE: Halloween 2016

Winnie the Pooh, Calvin and Hobbes, and the Grinch bandana are all making a comeback — but this time, “they’re candy” is where it’s at, according to MSN.

Really just candy, illustrated the company, and come in honor of some of the funniest cartoons and books from the last 50 years.

Bonus spooky nursery rhymes are in store as well, for the not-so-quiet kid in all of us.
