  1. Damien Hirst certainly has an interesting taste when it comes to jewelry. This piece is quite eccentric in a good way. Each diamond is placed accurately on the cast, creating a perfect diamond-made skull! I’m just wondering whether the teeth are real or not. Nevertheless, this work of art will certainly capture the interest of many.
