So, how did everybody spend their Christmas? I spent it very good, actually- great food, family, gifts (recieved and gived), friends...I loved it! Well, my inspiration for this post is the gorgeous gift my father gave my mother, a Tiffany & Co. by Frank Gehry "Torque" (meaning: strength) ring. It really is fabulous in white gold, the one my mother got, because it blends femininity and masculinity (is that a word?) very, very well. This is the exact ring:
Don't you just love it? Here are some other ones I find are just gorgeous in this collection (by the way, my mom just got the first one-not all of the ones you are about to see!):
This is also a Torque ring, but it is actually made with Cachalong Opal. This is definetely more Mod 60's/Andy Warhol than the others, which actually makes it more young feeling even though it will probably go out of style faster, too.
This ring looks more femenine than the Torque, being the Equus ring. The added brilliant-cut diamond looks spectacular with the flowy shape of the ring, too.
This folded brushed silver pendant looks so chic and modern, it is just so opposite of the whole "Tiffany's" thing you would expect, basically very unexpected.
This brooch is so gorgeous that it's sort of hard to put it into words. Like, basically, I adore that it's actually a brooch when I thought it was like some unusual ice cream spoon. I also love that it has no tacky huge canary diamonds on it like other brooches do. It's simple and classic, very refined.
This bangle is one of the most fabulous I've seen in this collection. It obviously has the shape of the Torque, but in a bangle-size. It is made in brown banded agate, which brings up another thing I love about the collection, the materials used are just so exotic! Cachalong opal, brown-banded agate, nephrite green jade, onyx and acacia wood are just a few out of the many used in the whole collection. The collection is ginormous, by the way!
Hope You Loved It!
