Jew­ellery gets some ma­jor street cred. But in­stead of lay­er­ing on the chains like Jimi Hen­drix and Steven Tyler, give it an ur­ban spin like Ri­hanna, who fuses ’90s hip-hop with clas­sic rock. In this in­stance, sautoirs are paired with b-boy caps (see: Chanel Spring/Sum­mer ’17), while ban­danas are laced with del­i­cate chains. It’s Tu­pac meets Ozzy Os­bourne. Take a look at any rock ’n’ roll icons out there, and you’ll re­alise how overtly em­bel­lished their hands are. Case in point: Ste­vie Nicks, Alice Cooper, Ja­nis Jo­plin, and more re­cently, Florence Welch, whose rugged bo­hemian style caught the eye of Gucci cre­ative di­rec­tor, Alessan­dro Michele. The com­mon ground here? State­ment me­dieval-es­que cock­tail rings—signets, cabo­chons, and cush­ion-cut pieces in an­tique gold, gun­metal, and rhodium stacked onto ev­ery fin­ger.
