Contra Mundum: Diamond Studded Glove by Daphne Guinness

Fashion icon Daphne Guinness has collaborated with jewelry designer Shaun Leane to create a striking and innovative piece of body “armor”. The glove, entitled “Contra Mundum”, Latin for “Against The World” is made of hand crafted chain-mail and 5000 pave diamonds.

“I dislike the idea of jewellery being like a price tag around someone’s neck. It needs to be something else – and there is something extremely magical about armour.” – Daphne Guinness

Contra Mundum is being exhibited and represented via Jay Jopling at the White Cube Gallery, London N1.
