There’s some time-traveling taking place in the jewel world. Everyone is going back to Paris circa about 1929 – the lavish style of Art Deco is taking over, from Ralph Lauren to Oscar de la Renta to Tiffany (though they’ve always done it). Even Rachel Zoe‘s new jewelry collection is all about Deco.
Sure, it will come back again, but this is a fun trend, so unless you are looking to invest in true precious jewels, always turn to Kenneth Jay Lane for a quick, cheap fling you can enjoy and forget about. His costume pieces nail the look every time, whether it’s Native American turquoise, red-carpet diamonds, or Art Deco’s graphic ornamentation.
Black enamel with crystals sets the stage for cool, vintage-y coral. The cuff offers instant jazz, and the earrings are great for everyday, work included. Vamp them up for evening with the right LBD, or even pick up bright summer colors for true eclecticism. Cuff, $315, and Earrings, $135, on Net-a-Porter.
