Times restaurant critic S. Irene Virbila declares her pasta allegiance

Vermeil-1 Declare your allegiance to pasta asciutta -- dry pasta as opposed to fresh noodles -- with this necklace from Monaco jeweler MissBibi. She's rendered a single penne in silver or gold and simply strung it on a chain. And it's on sale right now for 50 euros (about $71 at today’s rate) instead of the normal $150. (Shipping to the U.S. is 10 euros or about $14.) 

 She's also designed a necklace or ring featuring a gold Bague-farfalla-or farfalla (butterfly-shaped pasta) and a pair of mismatched pasta earrings -- one penne, one farfalla. Guys can order them as cuff links.    

Those pasta earrings? I could easily see wearing a pair. Nothing like wearing your allegiance on your, er, ears.
