Some on Twitter even compared it to the Mockingjay pin from "The Hunger Games." (Lionsgate / "The Hunger Games")

Or at least what "Hunger Games" actor Josh Hutcherson wore recently on the red carpet.

Others compared Bartiromo's look to Harry Potter –– albeit one of Lord Voldemort's horcruxes. (Video via Warner Bros. / "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1")

But maybe the best comparison was to the ultimate jewelry-candy crossover: the Ring Pop. (Video via Fox Business)

The Democrats have the next debate on Nov. 14, and it'll be interesting to see if any candidates show up with a little bling themselves.
