If someone says to you, “face jewelry is my latest obsession,” you might think they mean those decals and metal parts hanging from eyebrows and on foreheads a la Givenchy and their Fall 2015 runway looks. Or you might think they mean cameo jewelry. I’m actually talking about new, designer jewelry that depicts faces as a main design motif. For one reason or another, I’ve always been drawn to faces in jewelry–whether they are beautiful, scary, happy or horrified…or all the above, like Anthony Lent’s Emotions eternity band. As of recently, I realized that there are quite a few “face jewelry” superstars on today’s market. I wanted to collect several here and display them within this blog post, but most importantly–I want to get your feedback on face jewelry. Do you like it? Which piece is your favorite? And do you know of any others (I KNOW I’m missing some)?
King of faces (and hands, and butts, and lips…) Anthony Lent’s moonfaces are a jolly kind of face jewelry. This photo depicts the assortment of sizes, styles and options that his iconic sculpted design is available in.
Clockwise, starting at the top:
Peculiar pendants by Fraser Hamilton which combine the abstractness of the face with the style of his work–totally love them
Hannah Blount created this Lioness diamond lady ring using white and gray diamonds–this piece was inspired by Art Nouveau cameos and is handmade by Hannah in her Boston studio
My newest discovery–Rush Jewelry Design–does this awesome face pendant done in 18k yellow gold, called the Beast of Burden
I instantly became obsessed with this necklace by Amsterdam Sauer, a Brazilian jewelry company founded in the 1940s. This piece is a part of their Tribes Collection, along with a few other face jewels.
Lady of the Cosmos earrings by Cleopatra’s Bling will totally brighten anyone’s day! I love this design–the faces are almost cartoony but I wouldn’t put them in the same category as emoji jewelry. This is a new level!
Of course, as mentioned in the beginning paragraph, the Emotions ring by Anthony Lent will amaze you and yes, you’re seeing multiple emotions in one ring. And notice that the faces share eyes…now wrap that around your brain and try to reflect of what this ring could possibly symbolize!
Another piece by Hannah Blount, this one more well-known–her signature Grey Lady ring done in yellow gold, which comes in three different sizes, little, medium, big!
Last but not least, in the middle hangs a quirky little pendant, tribal mask dude slurping up some diamond drool. Probably the best thing you’ll see all year. This cool design is by dmdmetal!
