Object of Desire: Boucheron Delilah necklace
A few weeks ago, I dragged TiltzyBeauty with me to see the Desir show at Spiegelworld down at Pier 17. The show just closed on Sunday, but, in case you were wondering, it was a Cirque du Soleil-esque cabaret show featuring nearly every socially acceptable sexual fetish (whipped cream, cross-dressing, bi-curiosity, etc.), presented in an artsy, Moulin Rougey, 1890s Paris kind of way. The more important part is that Boucheron was one of the sponsors of the show, and in fact they had a tiny pop-up store set up within the Spiegelworld sprawl. (Boucheron, in case you haven't heard of them, is a 150-year-old French jeweler known for outfitting Maharajahs and movie stars, and is now owned by PPR, making it a cousin of Gucci, Balenciaga, YSL, et al.) Whether anyone actually purchased anything there, I am not so sure, but Tiltzy and I definitely ogled all of the goods--jeweled animals, geometric pieces, and even bejeweled sunglasses. But the piece that I couldn't take my eyes off was the deceptively simple Delilah necklace. Designed to look like a scarf, it's a long woven gold necklace with gold chain fringe at the ends, designed to be wrapped or tied around the neck. It's absolutely stunning. It's also $17,000, but a nice little feature of Boucheron's new e-commerce site is that you can hide the prices--and, hey, what you don't know won't hurt you.
