Ladykiller Alligators

Kieselstein-Cord Gator Collection
(Clockwise from top left) - Pendant, Ring, Earrings, Cuff

Photographer, jeweler, artist and above all, designer of world renowned luxury products, Barry Kieselstein Cord effortlessly fuses intricacy with a poignant touch of eccentricity thereby adding beauty to ordinary objects.Featured here is the Gator collection; some of the pieces from this collection are currently exhibited at The Louvre, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and Texas and the Louisiana State Museum in New Orleans as part of their permanent collections.

The alligators have been worked upon so beautifully that the very craftsmanship of these pieces breathe life into them.The 18-karat yellow gold that these alligators are made in, is very mellowed giving a subtle sheen to each piece and very gently highlighting the combination of textures and patterns handcrafted in them.These pieces are quite chunky and are definite attention mongers.Resplending high fashion, they perfectly complement a high class cocktail party.Wear a piece or two from the collection with a simple black dress and bite your way to attention.Go ahead and bring home the alligator sans their deadliness.
