Nina Ricci Embroidered Jewel Clutch: Pièce de Résistance

Lingerie plays a big role in Nina Ricci’s Spring collection, and it’s not just in the satiny bra tops and sheer slip-dresses that marched down the runway. Exquisite lace also came in the form of their accessories. The crowning jewel: this embroidered box clutch, so stunning it’s worthy of any red carpet.

The best things really do come in small packages, don’t they? I can’t decide what’s more mesmerizing about this little treasure – the touchable embroidery detail or the gemstone-embellished clasp. Calling it “embellished” actually feels like an understatement. It’s curvy, whimsical, and all-out awe-inspiring. Opalescent jewels in varying shades of blue come together in an abstract floral shape, the perfect compliment to midnight-indigo lace.

Intricate and delicate yet striking and extraordinary. A clutch like this is to be cherished for life, so even if it only comes out on very special occasions, this piece a worthy investment.

Available at Elyse Walker for $1,790.
