13 Exquisite Examples of Lingerie-Inspired Jewelry

Yesterday’s post paid homage to Victoria’s Secret models; today we’re focused on jewelry designs that suggest the textures, seaming, and delicate details found in sexy lingerie. There’s an abundance of lace and ribbon motifs, and La Perla–level “embroidery” (that is, layers upon layers of the most intricate—and masterfully executed—floral engraving and metalwork).

From a bustier-inspired bracelet to a ring that unwittingly made us think of black fishnet stockings (probably not the actual inspiration), somehow these bijoux belong in the boudoir.
