Hermione's Yule Ball Earrings

Occasionally I get catalogs from "The Noble Collection", a company that obtains licenses to produce detailed replicas of props and jewelry from various movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean, The Da Vinci Code, and Lord of the Rings. A lot of their merchandise is very expensive and not to my taste, but I do like these earrings based on those worn by Emma Watson as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The Yule Ball scene is one of my favorites, when the butterfly Hermione we all knew was there emerges from the caterpillar bookworm cocoon for the first time.

Admittedly, these earrings are pricey, at $59.00. But they'd make an extra special stocking stuffer for a girl aged ten to fourteen or so who is into the Harry Potter books and movies. And even if she outgrows Harry Potter -- which I haven't done at age forty-one! -- they're very pretty earrings.

What: Hermione's Yule Ball Earrings
Where: Noble Collection website
How much (as of today's post): $59.00 (plus shipping)
