LW1, would you consider a bone ring? It'll be less brittle than glass, shell, ceramic, or carved quartz. I don't know whether that'll gross you out, but here are a couple of options: carved or smooth. Or grow your own (haaaaa).
@Emmanuelle Cunt That's awesome! Bakelite is awesome. Is it something like this? Antique dealers who specialize in pre-plastics could give you an idea about that. Otherwise, there are price books out there for basically every kind of bakelite bauble (and other collectible) out there, and they list prices based on rarity, condition, etc. Sometimes libraries will have those books, or can order them for you. Or see if you can find similar pieces online to give you a range.

Things I am imagining that make my day better:
1) That horse bracelet was made by David Mitchell and Robert Webb in their latest collaborative project, a high-end jewelery workshop.
2) I own it.
Everyone is buying bean seeds on the way home, right?

@entangled I don't think you necessarily need to go darker, just have them full and well-groomed. If you've got naturally awesome eyebrows, keep them tidy and shaped and you are set.
ETA: But see what Liz did there with her brows in the linked photo, and used some powder to shape the arch and smooth the outlines? You could do that.

Does your stylist not offer free trims between cuts? They might! Or have you considered going to a regular old barber to do the sides/back upkeep after one fancy haircut? I haven't done that, but I am thinking that the next time I need a trim I'll go to a neighborhood barbershop.
I'm sure you've thought of those things, but it pains me to think of anyone being forced to forgo a pixie cut.
