We made it through Friday the 13th without any mishaps, but we'll sport this delicate lucky charm necklace for the rest of the week just for a bit of extra security. Designer Jennifer Meyer creates feminine and whimisical pieces using fine metals and precious stones, and Chic thinks this will make a perfect contrast to some of the tough, somber looks for fall. Now, what to wish for... THE DETAILS: www.barneys.com, $700

We at Chic are always golddigging...That is, finding new ways to wear, use, and consume the natural element and precious metal. We've seen edible gold flakes and gold leafing in Versailles, and so why not golden candles? Comme des Garcons, pioneers of all things creative and kooky, have been inspired by gold and created a fragrant candle in its honor, titled 888 Candle. The brilliantly shiny box and votive are enough to keep us intrigued, but pray tell, what does gold smell like? THE DETAILS: www.shopconfederacy.com, $111

Remember the tried and true “airplane” trick used to coax toddlers into finishing their peas? Well, when that gets old, simply pick up a can of Esslack Food Spray, a glorious invention that stains anything in your fridge a glittering shade of gold. But don't panic: while most lacquers are totally toxic, the contents of this aerosol can is entirely edible. Suddenly a plateful of sprouts never looked so enticing!
