Did you know that Sotheby’s, as part of an auction that takes place tomorrow in Geneva, had some of Marie Antoinette’s remaining jewels on display in right here New York City, and that visitors could even touch them? I did not, and consequently, I’m going to be angry at myself forever.
A collection of 54 rings—Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Viking, and medieval in origin—is coming up for auction. They look great and I need to own all of them.
A jewelry designer has accused Anthropologie of ripping off a pair of earrings she created—after she’d already declined a too-low offer for other pieces, Refinery29 reports.
Until today, what I knew about Tiffany & Co. can be condensed into three neat bullet points: Audrey Hepburn; robin’s egg blue; this blog post by Jezebel’s Joanna Rothkopf. Recently I learned that Tiffany & Co. might have a sense of humor—here’s the twist—I’m on board.
You might know Quavo, one member of the rap trio Migos, from the group’s hit “Bad and Boujee.” Or you also might know Quavo because he has one of the greatest, weirdest pieces of jewelry: a giant, diamond-encrusted chain depicting him as a chef holding the rat Remy from the animated film Ratatouille.
I’m going to tread carefully here, because I know at least some of you are Star Wars fans, and my interest in the franchise does not extend beyond the ewoks (they’re very cute). But methinks we can all agree that only a fan of absurd devotion—and absurd wealth—would purchase a life-size replica of Darth Vader’s helmet …
The Jesus piece is a thing of the past, my friends; the smoking hot new trend in flexing both your allegiance to the Bible and your enormous rapper wealth is, apparently, a gold chain of La Virgen, St. Pablo, and maybe some other dudes made by rap’s most devoted God man, Kanye West.
Legendary jewel thief Doris Payne was arrested Wednesday in what I can only assume is a fake out in furtherance of one last heist—you know, the big one, before she retires.
While best friends Drake and Future were performing in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday night, a thief (or thieves) broke into one of the rappers’ tour buses and stole a briefcase containing what TMZ reports amounted to “2 to 3 million dollars in bling.”
Lady Grey Jewelry, an indie brand with a woodsy, sculptural vibe which lists its celeb fans to include Beyoncé, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, and Grimes, apparently received an order for an $84 Helix Ear Cuff from one Ivanka Trump. Whether or not we believe that Ivanka would actually wear a gold plated ear cuff is beyond the…
Supposedly, before she was burned at the stake by a bunch of English clergymen, Joan of Arc turned a devotional ring over to Cardinal Henry Beaufort, and it’s been in English hands every since. Until now, anyway.
A woman in Florida who designs jewelry is accusing Reese Witherspoon of stealing her precious Magnolia logo for the actress’ fashion line.
A 24-year-old woman suspected of a string of robberies at jewelry stores across the South has been arrested in Atlanta. She’s facing up to 20 years behind bars, so now is certainly not the time to feel a little inspired, maybe, or to consider that capitalism is the real thief, in a way?
Welcome back to Deep Cuts where we make fun of a bunch of hot junk that’s on sale and then secretly buy it anyway.
Lesson: Don’t go to the club without making sure you’ve insured all your valuables. Or, don’t bring items you need to insure to the club.
It’s payday. Welcome back to Deep Cuts where we get high and do some online clearance shopping together, right?
A brand of extremely sentimental woman might choose to send her breastmilk to a company called MommyMilk Creations, which promises to transform your mommy juice into an adorable little pendant. But now, dozens of women who have paid and sent in their organic materials have been basically stranded—the company will not…
Welcome back to Deep Cuts. Please buy this hot junk that’s on sale so that we can’t.
I went to a wedding on Saturday — the very first intentionally hashtag-free post-Instagram wedding I’ve attended — and man, there was some bomb-ass jewelry up in there. Behold:
Why, in my 60's, am I suddenly a senior citizen? Hopefully, the advantage of reduced movie ticket prices is worth it. I ponder daily the gap between that number and my own perception of self. I do have a few aches and pains from working out, but I had those when I worked out at 20. I also need a bit more sleep…
