Vampires are folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures. Although vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures, and go back to “prehistoric times”, the term vampire was not popularized until the early 18th century, with the success of vampire literature, namely John Polidori’s 1819 novella The Vampyre that established the archetype of charismatic and sophisticated vampires. Also Bram Stroker’s 1897 Dracula is remembered as the quintessential vampire novel which provided the basis of modern vampire fiction. The success of this book spawned a distinctive vampire genre, still popular today with books, films, video games, and television shows. It’s pulled itself from the realms of nightmares into the modern world, classified as “the sexy immortals.” Bel Air Jewelry hints at these modern vampiric themes with their blood red ruby collections and this sassy video (click the photo above).
Kristin Bauer van Straten was born and raised in Racine, Racine County, Wisconsin with her parents – an avid horseman and gun collector, and a housewife involved in charities. In childhood she played sports, and like her father, rode horses and shot guns. In her youth she studied fine arts in Boston and New York, but decided to become an actress and moved to LA, where she has been living the life of stardom since she began acting in 1994. Known most often as the fiery vixen that plays the role of Pam on True Blood, her “larger than life” attitude has worked its way into the hearts of the viewers. This sassy vampire is one of the most luxurious well-dressed characters on the show. When she mocks her own bloodlust by dressing in iconic rubies and vivacious red outfits it asks the question; is there any day that a ruby doesn’t look good on a woman’s neck? Check out these decadent pieces by Bel Air Jewerly and let your imagination run wild with the idea of countless sharp kisses.
