Jewel of the day: Peace of Schmuck A Little Bit in Love Necklace

I lived in Berlin for a couple of years, so I do know that schmuck is simply German for jewellery. But having grown up speaking Yiddish  … I know that the word is also a dismissive way of calling someone a dick (it literally means penis in Yiddish). Bonus language lesson: you can also substitute it for the word putz (which means clean in German). Every time I would see a Schmuck sign, it made me laugh and roll my eyes a bit at the same time.

This necklace is by Peace of Schmuck, a German designer. They explain simply, “Necklace from exquisite pale purple-pink freshwater pearls on silver figaro chain with hook closure.”

This sells for €195.
