If you want to show the world how much you love carbs, you can now don these adorable pendants modeled after your favorite pasta – no extra calories necessary.

Delicacies, a jeweler backed by big names like Andrew Zimmern, has a penchant for creating food-inspired pendants and bracelets. Delicacies' Al Dente collection is the latest offering for those who simply can’t resist the allure of a bauble that's delicate, yet decidedly a statement piece.

Any noodle good enough for a Sunday feast is now ready for you to wear proudly around your neck: penne, rotini, farfalle, cellentani, bucatini, and orrechiette.

These pendants are available in sterling silver, 24k gold, and even cast in a diamond pave pattern. We’re talking some seriously delicious bling.

If pasta doesn’t quite capture your heart as much as, say, an artichoke, no worries: there’s a slew of staple ingredient pendants and bracelets that Delicacies offers in addition to the beloved Italian staple.

This pineapple would be a great addition to any tropical vacation look, and we know Mainers and seafood lovers will wear this lobster with pride. Whatever strikes your fancy – from basil, carrots, corn, cacao, and even avocado – Delicacies has you covered.

These pieces are something you can feel good about purchasing – Delicacies has a program where 10 percent of every purchase will go towards a hunger-relief charity, as chosen by a famous chef. Some names that the company has worked with: April Bloomfield, Stephanie Izard, and Gail Simmons.

A little bit of giving back while showing everyone that food is love? Now that’s amore.
