These Jewels Are Beyond Beautiful...And Totally Bugged-Out

Nope, this isn't Delfina Delettrez's first time at the ant farm. Once again, Delettrez has married creepy-crawlies with chic, mind-bending designs for her capsule collection for Yoox. Of course, what other outcome could we expect from the designer? This is, after all, a fourth-generation Fendi. Clearly, a refined aesthetic runs in her gene pool –– even beasties can be made beautiful.
In six pieces, Delettrez transposes cabinet-like insect specimens for the world of fine jewelry. Definitely a new take on high/low, the hexagon bangle resembles a bee hive and gilded chandelier leaf earrings hang from caterpillar studs. Coolest of all has got to be the cocktail ring: With just one base, the bauble (made from transparent resin) is actualy interchangeable. Yes, it's official, these are the only bugs we'll allow in our jewelry box.
Take a look at the designs ahead and shop them online, now.
