The sexy trysts between Fifty Shades of Grey’ s Anastasia Steele and her billionaire lover Christian have inspired countless products and now we can add another: an official jewelry line.
Global licensing company CopCorp Licensing announced today that H.E.R. Accessories has been granted the right to make and market costume jewelry inspired by author E L James’ best-selling book trilogy.
So…pearl necklaces? Not quite. “The materials will be mostly metals, though there will be some beading,” a CopCorp rep told EW. While pictures of the prototypes are currently being kept under wraps, we’re told the collection will feature rings, necklaces –including a locket — and charm bracelets that all carry various nods to the risqué book, like handcuffs, masks, keys and the catch phrase “Laters Baby.” No word on when the jewelry will hit shelves or what the price point will be just yet, we just know it’s “coming soon.”
Are we even surprised a sex-filled book has produced so many off-springs? Between the copy cat books, fan fic, cosmetic and clothing collections, baby onsies (why?), themed vacation packages and even lines of bath and kitchen products (“50 Shades of Chicken,” by “F.L. Fowler”? Come on!), I’m all tuckered out. But considering the thousands of Fifty Shades-inspired jewelry offerings being sold on Etsy, the trend still has endurance.
