For the Lanvin Spring 2014 collection, it was all about hearts and stars, but these are not the petite kinds of hearts and stars you see on so many dainty jewels today. They’re mega oversized (though believe it or not, these are smaller than the pieces that initially went down the Parisian runway!).
As someone who can’t wear earrings (even platinum studs irritate me), I’m completely on board for the ear cuff trend. Sure, you could say it’s my only option, but really, there’s no compromise involved. If anything, the cool factor goes way up when a piece encompasses the entire ear, rather than just the lobe.
Most jewelers try to design something original using the same old techniques they have always worked with, but Atelier Swarovski and Maison Martin Margiela know that to be truly innovative, you have to break the mold.
While we’ve just about made it to the most wonderful time of the year, there’s still one hurdle left to clear – holiday shopping. I love shopping and I love picking out special gifts for family and friends, but between a long list to buy for and an even longer line of people at the register, it can be a serious challenge, especially for Snobs on a budget.
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.
