Madewell
Speaking of charge-related woes, this stylish backup battery by Triple C makes a sassy addition to any (totally dead) phone. We like the smart black and white zig zag, but the red polka dot motif is equally adorable. $39.50 at Madewell.

We're convinced there's no prettier pocket knife on the planet than this gorgeous wood-inlaid edition from Santa Fe Stoneworks, a studio located in a century-old adobe ranch house by the Sangre de Cristo mountains. You may find yourself looking for occasions to trim or file things just to look at it. $45 at Joinery.

J.Crew
These dainty J.Crew studs may not be real diamonds, but they pack a sparkly punch for the price-tag. We love the smoky quartz hue--a refreshing alternative to typical bright white. $30 at J.Crew.

We love the idea of headphones doing double-duty as jewelry (hey--they're already draped around your neck) and these beaded chains from Hand Candy have a laid-back, boho look. $44 at Shopbop.

Sure, at first glance it looks a little like a lump of coal, but this sparkly rock is a found geode plucked by none other than retailer Maryam Nassir Zadeh. The store stocks a range of found stones, but we liked this one for its brilliant emerald and purple hues.$45 at Maryam Nassir Zadeh.
