Carrot/Karat: Solange Azagury-Partridge’s carrot ring gives new meaning to ’18 karat gold’

It’s 18 karat gold, and it’s also a bunch of carrots. Geddit?

It was mildly funny until we saw the £3,400 price tag, and then we were all, “Er, yeah, it’s not THAT funny…”

It must be that funny to some people, though, because it sold-out at Net-a-Porter almost as soon as it arrived there, meaning that if you want it, you’re going to have to add it to your wish list and hope more stock arrives soon.

    Definitely not to my taste. I do wonder who buys these type of things!

    I’m surprised they didn’t try and make a bunch of 18 carrots and stick that on the ring.

    If it was a piece of 25¢ costume jewelry at a rummage sale, I would buy it just for laughs, and in case a costume ever came up where that was needed. But, having it in gold, as normal jewelry is a bit much for me…

    EWW, as well as being guh-ross it would look way better in silver.

    If it was a cheap ring from Topshop/Accessorize etc. then I could quite like it, but why make that ring our of 18 karat gold? crazy!

    It’s kinda cute as a novelty ring, but who makes novelty rings out of 18 carat gold for £3400?!

    I don’t understand how a simple gold ring with enamel? plastic? glass? carrots on it can cost so much! I work in a jewelry store and gold bands cost about $200CAD. If I was going to spend that much money on a ring, I’d get one with a big diamond, not carrots!

    Oh, how “amusant”! Yes, this ring will probably tell you a lot about the wearer…

    Meant to be ‘carats’ ie 1 carat diamond, 2 carat diamond, 3 diamond etc… Not meant to be the purity of the gold!!!

      No, a “karat” refers to the gold:

      “carat” refers to gemstones.

    Who the (bleep) would buy this ring at *that* price? It looks like a cheap novelty ring – which I still wouldn’t wear…
