Kim Kaufman Designs “Kiss Of Venus” Locket Worn By Sarah McLachlan
If you’re a big fan of singer Sarah McLachlan, you might have caught her during a promotional tour in NYC, when she was publicizing the release of her new Laws of Illusion album. And if you were watching closely, you might have noticed the locket she wore while performing on David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon. Designed by Kim Kaufman, the talisman-like “Kiss of Venus” 18k gold locket boasts a 1.5″ diameter and features five pear-shaped diamonds arranged in a circle form along the center of the piece, totaling 0.25 cts.
The locket features an engraved image of four eight-year cycles of Venus’ orbit between the Earth and the sun. The astrological-themed piece alludes to Venus “kissing” us every 584 days, as the planet passes between Earth and the sun. Adding to the locket’s mystical vibe, it hangs from a Bohemian-flavored, rope-like black leather cord adorned with a wine-colored tassel.
Kiss of Venus locket by Kim Kaufman Designs, $26,000. Available at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC. Visit KimKaufmanDesigns.com for more information.
