A New Kind of Pearl

Image

Pearls; not recently been very high on our radar (bar the Chanel and Tiffany's strands, of course).

But when word came in about the exclusive Dover Street Market pearl collaboration between Comme de Garçons and Chrome Hearts (of goth and Lou Reed fame), pearls suddenly felt very right.

And it's not only Comme and CH that are reaching for pearls.

Yohji Yamamoto's "Stormy Weather" collection for Mikimoto is dark and moody, and Solange Azagury Partridge's "Ball (meaning pearl, of course) Crusher Ring" is another, erhm, intimidating beauty. At around £3,000, it's an investment, but nothing near the £15,000 for Tiffany Aria necklace, and a steal compated to the £400,000 that Marie Antoinette's pearl necklace is set to fetch at the Christie's auction on December 12th.

Pearls, get some in.
