Halloween and costumes go hand-in-hand, but that doesn’t mean your jewelry has to follow suit. Have fun with the holiday’s themes – just do it with pieces that you can also wear outside the month of October! Orange and black, skulls (of the McQueen variety), and creepy crawlies are all on the table. Which will you be sporting for the witching hour?
I’ve found your next obsession – Paire! The new site sells runway pieces that you can’t find anywhere else, and what better to wear as you’re watching the latest hit the NYFW runways than runway jewelry? I just had to bring a few pieces to NYC. First up was Rodarte’s snake collar ($595) – it’s exclusive to Paire and somehow also on sale.
When you think of statement jewelry, some of the first things that come to mind are large pieces, bright color combos, and unusual shapes. Bibi van der Velden knows that it’s what jewels are made of that sends the true statement, though. The NYC born, London and Netherlands bred designer crafts her pieces with rare materials like Chinese jade, Italian coral, and oh yeah – 40,000-year-old Mammoth tooth dug up from the Siberian tundra!
As summer cools down we start to bundle up, and our jewels are no different! Woven cotton adds a boho feel to even the most elegant pieces, relaxing them to optimal wearability without losing any of the chic style. Which artisanal jewel will you be wrapping yourself in this fall?
Tassels have a long and versatile history. Think about it – the same accessory that hangs from your mortarboard at graduation is worn on stage by burlesque performers. Somewhat ironically, the first mention of the tassel came in the Bible when God claimed that wearing one would help you remember the 10 Commandments.
…even when you’re not! That’s right – I’m not going to let the fact that I’m already married stop me from commandeering these looks. I’ve been excited about the jewels since I saw them at Jenny Packham’s runway show. I love that the Swarovskis are set like diamonds – it elevates the look without elevating the price…
