The idea of waiting for something makes it more exciting” ― Andy Warhol
A crinkled sparkling lump evokes memories of Ferrero Rocher-filled boxes during holidays or simply a sweet little pick-me-up after a long ordinary day. Chocolate. I'm talking about chocolate. Chocolate wrapped in gold. The anticipation of revelation.
Or maybe this golden truffle is a mythical cousin of the white truffle. What do you think that would taste like. Stardust, champagne, dirt. Perhaps a hint of Parmigiano.
The glittery treat contrasts with a smooth thick flat band. The perfect artistic statement. A beautiful piece you'll want to look at even when you're not wearing it.

So ugly, good thing it's delicious.
White truffle: the most decadent fungus that you could sprinkle and infuse your food with. I made a silver version to grate over your pasta (don't). Something charming about a sparkling lump.
The glittery fungus contrasts with a smooth thick matte band. Sculptural and substantial, this ring is nice to look at even when you're not wearing it.
