Jewel of the day: Sabine Getty Memphis Wiggly Bracelet

Well, this is fun. Sabine Getty’s bracelet, dubbed Memphis Wiggly at Colette (which sells it) looks more to me like an octopus than anything related to the Memphis design movement. It’s made of 18k yellow gold and nearly 30 karats of blue topaz. If it was in stock (you can ask to be notified when it comes in again) it would set you back €15,400 (good news: non Europeans pay only €12,833.33 as it’s less the VAT).

A bit about the line: Sabine Getty is a jewelry line based in London, and founded by Swiss born Lebanese-Egyptianjewelry designer Sabine Ghanem. Growing up between Geneva, Beirut and the South of France, the designer studied theatre and opera before switching to gemology. Inspired from Italian postmodern art collective the Memphis Group, the collection shows crayola-colored topaz pieces with a contemporary feel that will be adored by the fashion sphere.

  1. Visually stunning piece but I can assure you that it will probably be spending more time at a jeweller’s / setter’s bench undergoing repairs than on a wrist.

    Some of those stones will probably be popping out regularly.
