Lushes, libertines, rogues, and rebels. We all know, and perhaps even love, a few.
Below, 10 jewelry gift ideas that speak to a variety of kinks, quirks, and peccadilloes, curated especially for the person in your life who routinely nettles, yet frequently amuses you, with naughty behavior.
For the truly, incorrigibly, and fabulously louche, these cufflinks tick all the boxes when it comes to misbehaving. (Road to Ruin cufflinks in hand-painted rock crystal and 18k yellow gold, $11,928; Deakin & Francis)
If she’s more Odile than Odette. (Black Swan Infinite Ring with gray and yellow diamonds in blackened 18k white gold and 18k rose gold, $12,000; Karen Karch)
When a fondness for 50 Shades…has become a full-on lifestyle choice. (Choker with black diamonds set in black rhodium, $13,200, Noudar)
For someone who refuses to obey the rules, a watch that’s as far from vanilla as it gets—instead of traditional numerals and hands, you get inscrutable discs and graphics. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. (T2 N watch with a stainless steel case and silver dial on a blue alligator strap, about $16,000; Ressence)
For the slippery and/or sharp-tongued. (Vipers cufflinks with diamonds and sapphires in 18k white gold, $7,700; Oh My Got)
For the friend who sends you filthy emails. (Letter Necklace in sterling silver, $280; Wendy Brandes)
For the person who’s rarely without a vape pen, often smiling and always happy to share. (Sweet Leaf opal inlay necklace on a 14k gold and diamond chain, $2,275; Jacquie Aiche, also at top)
“Difficult” doesn’t even begin to describe her. (Thug Life Stud Earrings in 14k white gold, $350; Established)
For someone who’s a cross between the subject of Taylor’s Swift’s “Mean” and Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain.” Or certain members of Congress. (Coal Pin featuring natural coal harvested from the beaches of Newcastle NSW, price upon request; Workshop 85)
For Grandpa on a good day. Or your office sidekick. Doesn’t matter—everyone knows a committed F-bomber. (Men’s signet ring in sterling silver, $280; King Baby)
