Cronut Capsule Jewelry

The Romantic Limited Edition Cronut Necklace Contains Bronze-Cast Flakes

— February 13, 2015 — Fashion
The croissant-donut hybrid inventor Dominique Ansel and New York-based artist Gabriel Urist collaborated to release a cronut necklace just in time for Valentine's Day.

The extremely exclusive capsule pendent contained flakes of cronut that were cast in brass. In addition to the pastry-themed jewelry, you also received two Hallmark holiday-inspired cronuts that were filled with a sour cherry jam and covered with cherry blossom ganache and citrus sugar as part of the $100 #CronutIsForever gift set. If you haven't purchased it yet, you are out of luck. Only 100 were made available on February 11th at 3pm.

The limited edition cronut necklace is clearly for fans of the famous flaky dessert, as it is literally like wearing a piece of it around your neck.
