Remember when I asked simply everyone in the Scarf Scene about the SOIE Scarfring? If anyone could recommend it, or even owns one? Simply every answer included “Don’t buy it”. And then I was most happy to get it as a present.
Lesson learned. I didn’t think of asking, if the new Chaîne d’Ancre version “Recto Verso” is worth a try. If you have a thing for Hermès perfection, you love the scarfrings too.
I got the two tone Chaîne d’Ancre for two reasons:
1. I don’t wear gold jewelry, and sometimes, especially with yellow shades, I miss this warm shine of the yellow metal.
2. I love chunky and heavy scarfrings worn as pendant.
On the two pictures above you can see beautifully the difference the two sides make on one and the same scarf (Kelly en Caleche, 70cm).
Having a thing for striped scarves like Faubourg Express, H au Galop or Mediterranee didn’t hurt either, because this new scarf accessories features a mirroring silver golden stripe, when seen from the side.
The biggest surprise was that, even if the piece weighs quiet a bit, it works great with thin Pointus too.
