These wearable conversation pieces will allow devotees a fashionable way to incorporate their love of the show, and allegiance to their favorite house, into their daily lives."

From Pyrrha designer Wade Papin, "We were thrilled when HBO approached us to create an official Game of Thrones jewelry line. While designing the pieces, we felt it was important to embrace the spirit of this groundbreaking series while still retaining the signature Pyrrha style." Jeff Peters, Director of Business Development in HBO's Global Licensing & Retail department, adds, "The historically inspired aesthetic of Pyrrha's work made them a perfect match for a 'Game of Thrones' jewelry line. Fans of the show will be very excited to represent their favorite noble houses with these expertly crafted pieces."

Pyrrha is quite popular in Hollywood and has been worn by celebrities who include; Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Jeremy Renner, Rooney Mara, Katie Holmes, Josh Hutcherson and Taylor Swift. What do you think of the new line? Which "house" would you belong to and feel proud wearing?
