Apple’s Jony Ive Designed A Diamond Ring That Is Entirely Made Of Diamond

When you hear people talked about diamond ring, it is always a tiny bit of diamond with the rest of the ring made of some precious metal. That’s the norm, but it does not apply to this particular diamond ring called The (RED) Diamond Ring.

Bizarre Louis Vuitton Backpack Umbrella Hybrid Sold For $1,875

With the exception of Balenciaga, ‘bizarre’ is not synonymous with most fashion labels. However, there will come a time even the most mainstream design house will turn out some rather goofy product, such as this backpack umbrella hybrid from Louis Vuitton’s limited edition 1996 “Shopping in the Rain” collection. It apparently did not end up in someone’s attic. This treasure from 1996 resurfaced at Christie’s “What Goes Around Comes Around 25th Anniversary Auction” in September and it was snapped up by an unknown bidder for $1,875.

Banksy’s Painting ‘Self Destructs’ Moments After Successful Bidding

Banksy shocked the world yet again. This time, the elusive England-based street artist’s painting, Girl With Red Balloon, got a Mission Impossible’s ‘self-destruct’ treatment moments after the hammer went down to seal the deal at a cool £1 million (that was inclusive of buyer’s premium, btw), or about US$1.3 million. This is not even a joke. The just-sold painting was destroyed by shredding, right there and then, after someone decided to shell out a million pounds for it.

Artist Turns Regular Dolls Into Mind-blowing Hyperrealistic Figures

You know is it with stock action figures and dolls. They hardly resembles the person they took after. I don’t want to question why manufacturers of these expensive collectibles can’t get the facial features right. But hey, that’s probably a good thing because it leaves a void for exceedingly talented repaint artist like Philippine-born, US-based Noel Cruz a chance to unleash his talents and thus doing justice to the celebrities who the action figures/dolls took the image. How else would you turn ugly Emma Watson doll from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast into like what she supposed to be right? The works of Noel Cruz need no advertisement. The results speak for themselves. Continue reading Artist Turns Regular Dolls Into Mind-blowing Hyperrealistic Figures
