The Unicorn Frappuccino sent people flooding into Starbucks simply to share pictures of the drink on Instagram (until it didn’t anymore).

Animal videos rule YouTube.

Animals--fun, fictional and even extinct--have the ability to lighten the mood and uplift the spirits of so many people; perhaps that’s why animal-themed jewelry is trending.

The 11 pieces featured in this edition of Amanda’s Style File showcase the incredible variation of styles, from a unicorn cameo to a gold and diamond unicorn horn and frog earrings to rose gold monkey.

Serious and traditional jewelry-seekers need not apply for this trend.
