Tom Binns "Punk Pave Classic" Cuff: Pretty in Punk and Sticking to Studs

The name says it all: some say they’re “over” studs, but studded jewels are a timeless classic for me. I’ll never get over them, and I don’t ever want to! Especially when I spot a piece like this Tom Binns‘ cuff, proving that studs can look elegant when they’re done in light-catching 22-karat gold and on a teeny-tiny scale.

Binns is the master of elegant punk: safety pins and crosses layered to the point of opulence, neon and crystal blended for techno-bright luxury, and even a collection called “Pearls in Peril.” Compared to most of his pieces, this is decidedly minimal. Spiked studs that glisten like little jewels on a cuff equals a versatile piece you can wear with jeans or a fancy dress. Long live the stud! On ShopBop for $396.

Pair with: What says “pretty punk” like a black leather and lace dress? Especially when it’s belted with a bow and done by Valentino. On Net-a-Porter for $3,890.
