TO BE OR KNOT TO BE

DOES AN 18-CARAT GOLD CLUTCH WITH DI­A­MONDS ON THE CLASP CLAS­SIFY AS AS­SET OR AC­CES­SORY?

India Today - - WISH LIST -

Sub­tlety may not al­ways be the state­ment you want to make. If bold is the ba­ton you want to wield, the Bot­tega Veneta Yel­low Gold Di­a­mond Knot is just the crutch. The beau­ti­ful clutch from To­mas Maier’s F/W ‘13 women’s col­lec­tion is a lim­ited edi­tion, stun­ningly op­u­lent bag hand­crafted with half a kilo of 18 carat yel­low gold, but with the same tex­ture as a reg­u­lar in­trec­ciato leather Knot. Only this one has 74 bril­liant di­a­monds (0.64 carats ) em­bed­ded in the clasp (or the knot). The spe­cial made-to-or­der piece will take be­tween 3 and 6 months to craft and can be cus­tomised to will and whimsy. Devo­tees of brand and bling can ex­pect the clutch to hit the stores in Oc­to­ber. Brag rights are re­served for all those who can af­ford to splurge up­wards of one crore for it. Clearly, gold never gets old. Price on re­quest
