Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would know that The Hunger Games is set to be Hollywood’s next big thing.
Primed to take the same route Twilight took, the buzz surrounding The Hunger Games is slowly turning into madness the closer we get to its March 23 premiere.
Magazine covers, leaked pictures, pre-released songs from the soundtrack — this movie has it all and more, and it isn’t even out yet.

There are so many predictions of how this movie will fare at the box office but if you want a tangible sign of how The Hunger Games will perform, look no further than its merchandise: items are already marked sold out with some already on backorder.
Of course, many people are trying to cash in on The Hunger Games fever, but we here at Your Next Jewelry just want to recommend cool memorabilia from the book/movie at not-die-hard-fans price levels.
While not usually one of our favorite retailers for current pop culture references, Amazon is selling The Hunger Games jewelry for under $20 while other places have got the prices jacked up to nearly $100.
They’ve also got some of the rarer and newest items from the book such as this gyroscope necklace:
The Hunger Games Gyroscope Necklace, $18.50
And this cool matchstick necklace, which you are supposed to keep matchsticks in but would be just a cool container pendant all around:
The Hunger Games Matchstick Necklace, $18.50
They also have this cool new take on the Mockingjay pin, which they’ve converted into hoop earrings:
The Hunger Games Logo Hoop Earrings, $14.50
And all of these are inexpensive and very gift-able at just under $20.
Now, let’s go to what you really came for: the Mockingjay pin. The pin already made the L.A. Times Holiday Gifts List last year, so now, it’s a very hard-to-find item and is always sold out!
Retailers are selling the pin for as much as $99.99, but don’t fall for it — go for this deal instead:
The Hunger Games Mockingjay Pin, $11.99
Sure, it’s for pre-order, but it’s only $11.99, and it’s got the actual, slightly tarnished look of the supposed Mockingjay pin.
Pre-order this on Amazon now, so you’ll have it in time for the movie premiere. Will you be watching The Hunger Games when it comes out?
