The Find: a creepy, crystal-encrusted scorpion ring

Halloween can be a great excuse to have some sartorial fun (see, for instance, the get-ups worn by model Heidi Klum or Barney’s Simon Doonan over the years), but there are still many who despise going out in public in face paint and a wig. If costumes aren’t your thing, what about a piece of costume jewellery instead? This Swarovski crystal-encrusted ring is by Erickson Beamon, the 30-year-old jewellery label beloved by designers like Zac Posen, Givenchy, Anna Sui and Matthew Williamson. The gold-plated brass scorpion goes over the tip of the finger, while the tail wraps all the way down the finger’s length (there is a slight hinge, to ensure you don’t feel like you’re wearing a splint). It’s sure to grab attention, and it has a creepy vibe that’s just right for the season. $460. Buy it now »
