What with all the blood and aggression, it can seem like Shark Week was made for the boys, but, ahem, would there be such stellar shark-tooth jewelry if it wasn’t a total unisex interest? The official week might come around only once every 12 months, but with the right jewelry you can live it 365 days a year. Banish thoughts of clunky necklaces on heavy cording (circa elementary school) because there’s so much out there that’s dainty and girly.
The surest way to offset the tough side of a tooth? Adding it on a string of pearls.
