Delfina Delettrez is like the Salvador Dali of jewelry design. Her collections are filled with beautiful jewelry made from expensive materials, like gold, diamonds and rubies, all with a surrealist aesthetic. According to Vogue, last season, Delettrez included a septum ring in her collection, as they have become increasingly popular over the past year or so, and it gave her an idea: What if engagement nose rings became a thing?
With this idea in mind, Delettrez created several beautifully crafted, diamond septum rings for her Spring/Summer 2016 collection. She has some simple designs, with one single diamond, and some that are more elaborate, with several marquise-cut diamonds in a row. Why not make a beautiful diamond ring and wear it on your nose instead of your finger? Delettrez's designs are so stunning that I would definitely accept a proposal should someone present me with a Delfina Delettrez diamond engagement nose ring. Just saying.
“Maybe we can move away from having to wear an engagement ring — introduce engagement rings, engagement earrings, engagement bracelets, and to add a little punkiness to it, a little irony, I wanted to introduce the engagement nose ring," Delettrez told Vogue. "It’s a fake piercing but with real diamonds."
Aside from her collection of septum rings, Delettrez has a plethora of eccentric and playful jewelry. I'm not even sure where some of the jewelry makes belongs on your body, but it's so whimsical and fun, I don't even think it matters, like the below art deco creation that mimics a human face.
Her Spring/Summer 2016 collection also features a bunch of pretty rings, necklaces and bracelets with eye and lip motifs, which, I would like to point out, I would also accept as an engagement piece.
Delettrez showed off her new "Faceted" collection in Paris earlier this week and it's pretty great.
