Nymphenburg Porcelain, the 248-year-old German porcelain company, has paired up with jewelry designer Patrik Muff to create an 18-piece collection called simply "Essentials". The collection pairs the house's white porcelain with gold, silver and diamonds in a series of gothy pieces inspired by 18th century designs the porcelain company's archives, including medallions, crosses, skulls and angel wings. All the porcelain is produced by hand in Nymphenburg's workshops, where the clay has to sit quietly in a cellar and age for two years before being shaped. They're not inexpensive, ranging from $350 to close to $800, but a lot of work and expensive materials go into making them.
