Some days, you just wake up and realise that your life is bereft of some deep fulfilment that you’ve never realised you had. For some, it’s the beginnings of a mid-life crisis, or the yearning to escape reality. For others, it’s earrings inspired by breakfast food.
We can only imagine that’s what struck Tessa Packard into creating her Fat Free jewellery line. Guilty pleasure food forms a recurring motif, with sweet treats like ice cream, waffles, and penny sweets finding homes in earrings, necklaces or cufflinks. The crowning jewel in the Fat Free collection is also the most expensive — the fried egg earrings.
Technically, the tongue-in-cheek earrings have their genesis in the gummy eggs common to pick-and-mix candy. Each pair is made-to-order, costing you S$26,000. 18-carat white gold and pave-set white diamonds adorn these chandelier-style earrings, with yellow agate cabochons forming the eye-catching yolk centre. Interested customers can opt for the “egg white” to be done in either rose gold or white gold.
Tessa Packard’s sunny side up gems aren’t for folks to take themselves too seriously. Let’s be honest, nothing says you’ve got a sense of humour like giving S$26,000 fried egg earrings a crack.
