Jewel of the day: Gucci Ring with Spikes and Beads
Gucci spring 2016 is a 1970s fantasy (or nightmare) on acid. It has a costume-y look to it that is the kind of thing you get when you pile velvet on brocade on beading on odd colour combinations on heavy textures. It’s as if Talitha Getty became part of Warhol’s Factory scene.
This costume jewellery ring is fairly restrained given what the clothing looks like. And as costume pieces go, it’s fun. It’s made of metal with a centre glass pearl embedded with spikes and multicoloured beads on the sides. This sells for USD$650 should you be dying to have something from this collection.
