It’s supposed to be a gem resting between two fingers. But the image of a new pendant that was shared by London jeweler Theo Fennell gave the impression of something else entirely:
Lukas Grewenig created the pendant as part of the company’s Gilded Youth program, which recognizes the work of jewelry students. Its design was supposed to represent how a goldsmith assesses a gem “by placing it between their index and middle finger.” However, comments on Theo Fennell’s Instagram page indicated that some people saw a vulva, albeit a bejeweled one.
“This is a vag?” wrote a commenter with the username amber_alissa1989.
″…I know what it’s supposed to be, but this def looks like a pierced vagina,” wrote naturesenigma.
“I am so glad I am not the only one that didn’t see fingers,” said nikitamistralatkinson.
People on Twitter shared those sentiments:
From Theo Fennell: “This pendant was designed by Lukas Grewenig as part of our Gilded Youth initiative. The design is inspired by the way a goldsmith assesses a stone by placing it between their index and middle finger. The piece is on display in the store this week.”
