A sausage necklace compliments any outfit! Ever pass by a sushi joint and ogle at all of the fake food in the window display? Those little California rolls just look so real and appetizing, it makes you wonder how they get them to look so perfect.

The Japanese company now turns your favorite snacks--like ramen noodles, sausages and fried eggs--into mouth-watering jewelry. OK so the pizza necklace might be a bit overbearing, but we’re thinking the ketchup-dipped french fry earrings might be totally appropriate for a late-night diner date. No? Hmm.

But these girls play it off like it ain’t no thing. For its Spring/Summer 2013 issue, Gentlewoman got four teenagers to pose for their editorial Jewellery High School. Photographer Daniel Riera captures the awkward charm of these teens, embracing braces, fly-aways, and that wide-eyed enthusiasm. Not only did the girls get to dress up and wear some fancy jewels, they also get to brag to all of their friends that, ya, they were like, totally published in a magazine. Check out the rest of the Jewellery High School editoral from Gentlewoman’s s/s ’13 issue below.
