The clutch bag: its versatility unmatched when it comes to accompanying its owner from day to night. Whether with gown or jeans, the clutch very easily becomes the moot or exclamation point of the outfit.
And nothing screams so much in so small a package as the Bottega Veneta Yellow Gold Diamond Knot, the highest expression of the maison’s leather classic, the Intrecciato Knot. It’s a red carpet favourite palmed by the likes Julianne Moore, tennis phenom Maria Sharapova, and many more.
The entire piece, particularly the clasp, looks like it’s been sculpted right out of a block of gold, and it might as well be. Made out of half a kilo of 18k yellow gold, the signature crisscross texture is carved out throughout. But the bling doesn’t end there.
The bag possesses its own little secret as it joins at knotted clasp; at its side hides 74 diamonds totaling 0.64 carats.
This piece is made-to-order and will take between three to six months. And considering the fact it’s being specially forged for you, why not personalise it with your initials or name? Or, if it’s meant as a gift to a special someone, choose a word that holds special meaning to the both of you. This special bit will be engraved on a plague in the clutch’s interior.
