And 'Marie Claire' has a new managing editor.
To the great dismay of our seventh grade selves, Tiffany may be ending the licensing deal they've had with Elsa Peretti since 1974. WWD reports that the famed jewelers are looking to purchase 72-year-old Peretti's intellectual property, after she expressed interest in ending the current deal they have now. But Tiffany isn't quite ready to let go:
Having your name or initials emblazoned on something never gets old. It goes back to that pride you felt back in third grade, when writing your name into your favorite books sent a statement to the world: "This is mine." (And if you're like me, you also drew a unicorn and stars for good measure) As far as gifts go, something personalized or custom-designed shows that you put a bit of effort into it, when you could totally just buy an iTunes gift card. With that in mind, we gathered a bunch of customizable gift ideas at various price points. Whether your recipient is into fashion or not, here are ten ideas for cool custom gifts.

In need of a $7 million necklace? I can steer you in the right direction. Tiffany & Co. unveiled its new 2010 collections and I got to wander around a twinkling forest of gems. The aforementioned necklace has a 20-carat internally flawless diamond surrounded by a lot more diamonds. It was lovely, but probably better suited to a Middle Eastern prince a la the imaginations of the SATC 2 creators. It would really bring me unwanted attention on the subway. On the other hand, I saw a gorgeous cuff bracelet encrusted with 3,300 different sized round diamonds. It would absolutely transform that bland army jacket into something quite spectacular. And it's a steal at $140,000.
