The 26-minute nine-part suite bookending Pink Floyd’s ninth studio album Wish You Were Here (1975) is something of a subeditor’s go-to for any jewelry story featuring an abundance of colorless precious stones. What was meant as a loving tribute to Syd Barrett, the English rock band’s erstwhile singer and guitarist who was haunted by a great many demons, these days is given new life as a beauty and accessories cover story title in the Summer 2018 issue of Wonderland starring Gwen Van Meir. “Shine on You Crazy Diamond, Pt. II,” as this feature by photographer Jermaine Francis and stylist Kamran Rajput is titled, showcases no shortage of lustrous stones from Bulgari. Brilliant as a great many of these ornaments in 18k white gold are, the beauty by makeup artist Daniel Kolaric, not to mention the alluring Gwen herself make this a story, not simply a luxury index.
