Chrome Hearts Sneak Peek: Sparkle and Shine

For all you Chrome Hearts junkies out there, we at Gafas are releasing sneak peeks from the latest Chrome Hearts lookbook over the next few weeks. This is a lookbook that you would never see otherwise. Because of the exclusivity of Chrome Hearts, the only way to check it out is to visit one of their stores. Our team visited the Chrome Hearts crew when we were in New York last month, and the boys were kind enough to let us snap some pics of the book for you guys! Yay. This week's edition is devoted to all that sparkles and shines.
How many individual pieces can you count (answer at the bottom of the post)?
See if you can spot... the Rolling Stones dedication, Britain, and a skull

Chrome Hearts was established in 1988 by Richard Starck. Originally inspired by a love of motorcycles and a desire to have luxurious riding leathers, the company has grown to encompass jewellery, eyewear, accessories, apparel and furniture. The goal has been and always will be to integrate classic design with the best possible quality. Only the finest materials are chosen to create each piece, and the highest level of craftsmanship is guaranteed. But this brand is not for the weak of heart. The detailing is very bold and the collections are meant for those who can recognize and appreciate the quality craftsmanship put into each and every piece.

Chrome Hearts chunky jewellery has been gaining high praise from fans like Karl Lagerfield who firmly believes that “Chrome Hearts is the only appropriate jewellery for the modern man”. The jewellery collection is made from only the highest quality of sterling silver, 22K gold, platinum, and precious stones.

Bracelet cuffs are heavy on the bling. Sport one for a more classic look or layer for a statement

22K gold chain and pendants;
Lucky coins, Saints tribute, Star of David, Fleur De Lis and a Gothic cross are the hot inspirations behind these pieces!

22K heavy chain and gothic cross necklace; check out all the detailing and precious stones on the chain.

These dog-tags are SICK! Check out all the engraving and cut-outs.

An homage to punk: The safety pin.
Each one is engraved and decked out with precious stones.

Next up in the series of sneak peeks? Should we tell you? Well, perhaps a hint. It can never be too big.

And the answer to the bauble hunt? Twenty-one.
