Lydia Courteille 18k white gold skull ring – an expensive way to give yourself nightmares

Skull_ring

Yes, it’s 18k gold. Yes, those are black sapphires and white diamonds. No, you wouldn’t expect it to be cheap, under those circumstances, and cheap it is not – in fact, it’s £14,700 /$26,463 over at Browns.

Ugly, isn’t it?

Well, we think so, anyway, but then again, we’re not exactly the expensive skull-jewellery wearing types. What about you, though? Worth splashing out almost £15,000 on, do you think? After all, you can always pass it onto the grandkids one day, can’t you?

    Capitalizing on Damien Hirst’s recent sale, perhaps?

    Ugly but funny! If there was a cheap Swarovski version I would buy it.

    I wouldn’t wear it myself, even if it were significantly cheaper, but I’d love to see it on Russell Brand.

    I actually quite like this. I would like it much better if I could find a well done cheaper version, seeing as for that much money for one ring, I could buy an entire new wardrobe 🙂

    I think it’s gorgeous, but you know me ;-). It’s better than the tinker toys at hot topic. If I were rich, this would be the kind of trinket I’d blow 15 g’s on. It reminds me of The Rescuers.
