If you rewound well over 100 years ago, you'd be back in the Victorian era and totally primed to be on-trend in 2016…if you did some smash-and-grab jobs on the society ladies' jewelry boxes, tossed the hair lockets, and kept all the cameos. But why the miniature bas-reliefs of a woman's head? Why now?
Because Rihanna and — — said so.
Everything old becomes cool again when someone remembers it, but in this case, Aiche has brushed off a dusty motif and injected some anachronistic edge. In her new collection of rings, there's a fleur de lis but also a unicorn and an African bust. (Heads up: RiRi owns this one.)
Worn on the pinky like a signet ring or as part of a one-a-finger grouping, the cameo goes even more vintage, but in a very timely eccentric-who-only-wears-19th-century-nightgowns kind of way. Now for the acquiring: Aiche's hand-carved bands , but who knows?
