This one’s really strange, I’ll tell you that up front.
I don’t know if I’d ever wear it, but I like to look at it and I’m really happy that it exists.
The hinged bangle is made of gold and designed with two ladies’ heads as the terminals. Each head is set with carved emeralds, circular-cut sapphires and brilliant-cut diamonds. The ring is accompanied by a ring, similarly set.
How amazing are those baguette diamond eyes? Such a cool design choice, when it would have been so easy to do something more traditionally round instead.
I’m not sure who would wear this set, but I am sure I’d like to be friends with her.
What do you think of it? Am I nuts to give it a second thought, or are you on board this crazy train with me?
