Put a Ring on it

Padaung Woman and Daphne Guinness

Perhaps making a comment on her willingness to sacrifice herself in the name of fashion, costume collector and heiress Daphne Guinness accessorized with a neck coil much like the brass wires worn by the Padaung women along the Thai and Burmese border. The origins of this body modification practice are unknown and there are even greater mythologies about the jewelry’s effect on the wearer, regardless Daphne Guinness embraced the tradition with her own set of temporary coils for the 2012 New York City Ballet Gala honoring designer Valentino.
