Lara Bohinc, the Brit-based jewelry designer who's worked with brands like Lanvin and Gucci, is probably best known for her knot jewelry. The shiny gold and dull platinum knots come in different shapes and sizes, sometimes plaited, in rings, bracelets and necklaces. You've probably seen them accompanying a red carpet dress or two and even though they sell for upwards of $500, they're unique enough that they used to fly out of the store when I worked in retail. They sold so well that Urban Outfitters (who's usually a lot quicker on the uptake) is ripping off Bohinc's signature designs and warping them into $78 "mixed metal exclusive to Urban Outfitters" versions. In the store, they're merchandised three at a time, layered over each other, to at least lend an image of richness. But as you can see in the picture, they don't even come close.
