1879 English Etruscan Revival Gold and Mine Cut Diamond Bracelet, 18K, $2995

I think this is probably the most beautiful Etruscan Revival bracelet I’ve ever seen. The best revival designs make reference to historic styling and construction, but update them to feel modern. The granulation here is every bit as good as 2000 year old Etruscan jewelry, but the clean, geometric lines are surprisingly modern—especially for the 1870s. 

“What the art world has to offer… is room for speculative thought — What if? What if you put walls on the floor? What if elephants walk sideways? — and the freedom to look as long as you want.”
— Christopher Williams via New York Magazine (via moma)

“If you are in love with someone, there are such deep feelings you want to express, but words don’t do them justice so you end up repeating trite phrases from films or pop songs. I started to collect sayings from my friends and realized that the same ones were being recycled over and over.”—Jung Lee
