I was browsing last month’s Lucky Magazine this morning, and came across the most beautiful, delicate necklace on one of the “I’m Loving This” pages. It was almost a broken tulip shape, with the bud at the chain, and a very elegant, curvy stem.
I discovered that it came from Demitasse Jewelry, who I’d never heard of, previously. I love finding beautiful, interesting jewelry because I know nothing about it. I always crave it, but my passion lays in the garments of the world. I’m a buffoon when it comes to accessories.
Anyway, back to the necklace. Point is:
I’m in love with it.
I need it.
Oh yeah, and it’s not a tulip after all…
IT’S A FREAKIN’ MUSTACHE.
I’m in love with a golden mustache.
Sure, some people would argue that wild, outlandish jewelry isn’t a wise investment for a versatile wardrobe. I say, have your mustache and eat it, too. I am the kind of girl who can revel in the timeless simplicity of John Greed Jewellery, which is both affordable and gorgeous, but I’m also the kind of girl who wants to be able to pass down a golden mustache to her godchildren. You know what I mean?
I go back and forth on the importance of accessory versatility all the time! On one hand, I have pieces of jewelry from my grandmother that I would (and do!) still wear with modern, current, very-non-Grandma styles… so versatility is key for true value! That would mean that “investing” in something classic and “forever” like H.Samuel.co.uk when it comes to wedding rings and all that “forever“-y stuff would be the smartest move. That being said, you have to admit that this mustache craze is likely a poignant, anthropological datapoint along the Earth timeline, so there’s value there! Or maybe I’m the only one who will “admit” that… Either way, my blog, my jewelry box, MY ANTHROPOLOGICAL MUSTACHE MUSINGS.
This particular model, shown above, is Salvador Dali’s (or The Dali’la Stashe) mustache. Turns out I’m not so shocked about my own adoration – Salvador Dali & I have always had a strong connection. We share birthdays, and a total adoration for surrealism. Being that this necklace is only $65, I may just have to save a couple weeks of coffee money to snag one for myself! What’s two weeks of home-brewed coffee when you could have Salvador Dali’s Mustache immortalized around your neck forever? If you want to up the cute-factor, I’ll tell you that this mustache is only 1 1/2″ long.
Also, if you’re not really into Dali, don’t fret – there are others….
This is the Georgina Demistache, modeled after King George, available for $115.
Perhaps you need a Demistashe Rosary to help clear yourself from the great sin of shaving. Available for $98
I know you didn’t think it could get better, but let me drop a little note about the designer…
LA-based designer Rachael White established her fine jewelry line, Demitasse, in 2006. Demitasse reinvents the opulence of antique tableware and serving pieces into fine gourmet jewelry of gold, sterling, diamonds and sapphires.
True love. It’s here.
