There’s something bewitching about Prada’s jewellery debut. They aren’t exactly, well, Prada. Instead, they’re designed to look like trinkets with supernatural powers and a story to tell. These unisex necklaces take inspiration from primeval artifacts, which would explain its Jack Sparrow-like appeal and its purposefully raw make. No expenses has been spared to keep up its image either with it base of silver being embellished with exotic shells, wooden twigs, rock crystals, amethysts, labradorites, and citrine quartz shingles, just to name a few. What will get your attention, however, are those options featuring animals such as the koala bear, elephant, monkey, and panther. While Prada believes these might help to ward off evil, we believe these will deliver all the attention in your direction too.
