Lynn Ban Sapphire Lightning Bolt Ring
"David Bowie Is" is smashing attendance records at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The cutting edge exhibition has the glam rock goods: Ziggy Stardust memorabilia and all the archival material that fed Bowie's imagination revealing his creative process. A long time fan of The Thin White Duke, jewelry designer Lynn Ban's ring was inspired by the lighting bolt streaming across Bowie's face on his 1973 album Aladdin Sane. Clearly it would be just the thing to wear when I get myself to London for the landmark show.
$2,500; at Barneys New York
