At the end of November 2012, Vienna headquartered European jewellery label Pierre Lang sent the catalogue of the current Fall/Winter 2012/13 collection with a matte gold-plated pendant in the form of a natural gold nugget with a drop-shaped crystal which is embedded into its middle. The poetic design of a tear in a heart of gold reminds of classical European fables à la Brothers Grimm.
fig. original: The 'Nugget' - this is the name of the jewellery piece, is from the 'Glam-Rock' chapter of Pierre Lang's catalogue FW2012/13. The glam-rock pendants, rings, bracelets, etc are advised for denim outfits such as on the image below worn together with dark blue leather jacket and wide-brimmed hat.
Find the full catalogue with chapters like 'Parisian Chic' (where playfully designed pieces with couture appeal like the gold-plated knot-shaped ring are presented) or 'Modern Country' (which recalls the Gothic style of European castles with lily-shaped elements such as seen at a black bracelet, and items that makes think of signatures of aristocracy like rings with ancient woodcuts) on the website of Pierre Lang.
