Yes, I know this seems very simple and not so special, but it is to me. Last year they had these at Z Gallerie, but they only had it in gold. I wanted it so badly, but I am so not a gold person. I hate gold actually. So, I am so excited that it is now available in a silver option too. So excited that I am typing this as I drive to the store to get mine! You can get yours here.

Anyone who reads this blog or for that matter just looks at it can guess what my favorite colors are. Dk. Blue and Black have always been my favorite. That’s why my black hair rocks a blue streak on the blog and in real life. It’s my thing. Along with painting my fingernails black and my pinky fingernails blue. A good portion of the world finds me rather odd and abrasive. ¬†I do my own thing and as long as I’m not hurting anyone who cares? That being said there is the odd thing that’s pretty mainstream that I get excited about. I am slightly embarrassed to admit that I watched every moment of the recent royal wedding. Royalty just fascinates me and always has. I think it’s because back in the day my great uncle was the King of Denmark’s personal valet. My Mom grew up playing with the current Queen of Denmark and used to tell all sorts of cool stories. Sadly my Mom did not stay in touch with her, but she followed her life closely and in turn followed all royalty. When Prince William proposed to Kate with Princess Diana’s sapphire ring I was so excited. Not only because sapphires are my favorite stone, but because it was not the boring and expected diamond solitaire the size of a small country. In some ways I would love to have that ring, but it’s not really me. I came across this Gothic Sapphire Crystal Ring though, that would suit me just fine and would not be such a strain on the wallet at $89.95. It’s still my favorite color and surrounded by diamond-like¬†Swarovski crystals, but this one has an edge to it, a skull edge that surrounds the stones! I love it when things look normal until you look closely and see the evil.

The Most Expensive Skull…Ever

Filexd under: Accessories,Art,Collectibles,Weird Stuff — Tags: , , , — jane @

For the Love of GodYesterday’s post about the skull stapler got me thinking. For some reason I started wondering what the most expensive skull ever made was. I started searching and very quickly came up with the answer and boy is it expensive. It’s called For the Love of God and has been named the most expensive piece of contemporary art ever made. There was even a book called For the Love of God: The Making of the Diamond Skull written about it. It was made by artist Damien Hirst using a skull that he found in a shop. The skull is believed to be the skull of a 35 year old man who lived between 1720 and 1810. It’s covered in platinum and diamonds. It has 8,601 diamonds and comes in at 1,106.18 carats. It’s the most expensive piece of art ever created, costing between $16 and $20 million to make. When it was made the artist put a price tag of 99 million on it. It did not sell, but was eventually purchased by a consortium for 100 million that included the gallery owner and Mr. Hirst himself. The artist said that he was inspired by an Aztec turquoise skull at the British Museum, and hopes that his work will eventually be displayed at the institution. I’d be willing to let him display it at my house. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous and I must have it. Do you think they accept layaway?
