Hey, Racked readers: Verameat, the label behind the "Hip-Shark" necklace—that's a cross between a hippo and a shark, obviously—is offering you 40% off all designs, both in-stores and online using the code "RACKED".
We spoke with model-turned-jewelry designer Vera Balyura earlier this summer, where she discussed her "power animal" and how she dreams up designs like her dinosaur-eating-fried-chicken ring. Get to know a bit more about the collection and then make your picks before Sunday evening, when this offer expires.
