Piece of the Week: Lydia Courteille’s Spooky Cuff

It’s one of the designer’s many macabre-themed jewels.

Few jewelry designers successfully embrace the macabre like Lydia Courteille. 
Perhaps it’s her background as an antique jewelry and art dealer that informs her gravitation toward themes dark and romantic.
The Parisian designer should be any serious jewelry collector’s first stop for spooky season, with her many pieces depicting skeletons, insects, and fortune tellers, among other haunting motifs.
The “Bat Cuff” pictured at top is ideal for channeling one’s dark side.
Crafted in 18-karat gold plated in rhodium, the design is centered on an alluring black druzy agate and encrusted with 42.52 carats of black diamonds, and 0.24 carats of rubies.
Depicting three bats, there is a matching ring (below) for the die-hard Halloween fanatic. 
Prices are available upon request via the designer’s website.
