Lip Service: 5 Luscious Lip Jewels Speaks Volumes About Your Style

Carved gem lips from Christina Alexiou

Naxos, Greece. June 20, 2019. Lips serve a purpose in communications, but they’re also inspiring jewelry designers to cast or carve cute lip-motif jewels in many colors and materials. Gold lips with gemstone-dusted surfaces remind wearers of fave shades, while brightly enameled surfaces turn up color volumes in even more playful ways. Lipesque art objects like Salvador Dalí’s Mae West Lips Sofa inspire custom silhouettes, while carved stone lips are proprietary cuts that whisper silent sweet nothings to all who will listen. Finally, the rote task of breathing itself encourages more makers to model a plump, puckered-up pair for whimsical wear. Is there one mouth that’s really speaking to you? Verbalize your affections now, lest the style take up residence elsewhere.
