STYLE YOUR JEWELS: Ring Stacking


Photo from Song of Style

Move over arm party, there’s a new stacking sensation on the rise and we can’t wait to get our fingers on it.

Ever since we jewelry aficionados began piling bracelets up to our elbows, we have come to truly embrace the concept that more is more. (Like we really need an excuse!) Lately, ring stacks have been spotted on fashion’s most savvy tastemakers and we’re loving the look. Lucky for you, dear Charm & Chainers, we have plenty of finger bling fit for building the ideal hand party.

Congratulations to Charm & Chain’s Newest CFDA members!

I couldn’t be happier that my dear friends and super-talented designers Lisa Salzer of Lulu Frost and Danielle and Jodie Snyder of DANNIJO are three of the newest members of the CFDA! The Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Board of Directors met last week and reached consensus on something that I personally have known for a long time—that these ladies are absolutely brilliant designers.

DANNIJO is known for its beautiful bohemian glam line that takes bold risks and never misses a beat. Lulu Frost’s vintage-to-modern versatility is always a hit, and these amazing ladies join the ranks of other Charm & Chain designers, including Alexis Bittar, Dana Lorenz of Fallon, Rachel Zoe, Kara Ross, Gerard Yosca, and Tom Binns, who are already CFDA members and masters of their craft. Congratulations, Lisa, Jodie, and Danielle!

Designer Spotlight: Sandy Hyun

I love the early story of Sandy Hyun’s ascent to jewelry stardom. As a young girl, she couldn’t take her hands off her mother’s vintage pieces from Korea. With every free moment she found in her day, she would leave her home and take off down the street, heading for a local African bead shop where she learned the skills of jewelry making. When she returned home, she’d spend hours refashioning her mother’s old jewelry and—believe it or not—taking crystals from her parents’ chandeliers to wear around the house. I love this image!

Sandy’s pieces are effortlessly elegant and timeless. With lucite, vintage glass, and Swarovski crystal, this collection is for the ages. Take the time to discover her collection here on Charm & Chain. It doesn’t disappoint!

Designer Debut: Lele Sadoughi

Our newest designer on Charm & Chain, Lele Sadoughi, is quite the multi-tasker. After launching jewelry for J. Crew a few years ago, Lele left to join Tory Burch as Jewelry Design Director…and also create her own namesake line…and also have her first child.

Since I just finished watching her exclusive DailyCandy home tour, I must gush about her beautiful home (which I’ve had the pleasure of seeing in person). The pink dining room chairs, the dramatic glass candelabras, the brightly colored ikat fabrics – she is clearly a girl after my own heart!

And Lele’s eclectic taste for dramatic shapes and colors comes through loud and clear in her jewelry. Her pieces make fabulous stand-alone statements and will also mix effortlessly with other gems in your jewelry box. Her collection is a must-see and must-have.

Met Gala Jewelry 2013

Stylists had a field day on Monday night dressing fashion’s finest in couture punk ensembles at the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala. With a theme like “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” it was anyone’s guess as to what the couture collectors, fashionistas, and celebrities would show up wearing! Guests interpreted the dress code with a lot of help from spikes and safety pins, and I was especially thrilled with the jewels. Some of my favorite looks included Ivanka’s Trump’s gold studded cuffs, (plus blue hair streaks!) Lauren Santo Domingo’s punk-inspired layered statement jewelry, Cara Delivigne’s spiked necklaces, Sienna Miller’s dangerous-looking headpiece, and Sarah Jessica Parker’s well…everything.

Interpret the trend and be pretty in punk with something from our Met Gala-inspired collection here.

Introducing David Aubrey…

I’m unbelievably excited to announce the launch of David Aubrey on Charm & Chain. The designer of the line, Jennifer Arago, has been perfecting her craft for almost two decades, and I’m captivated by her bottomless reserves of creativity. The shapes, colors, and textile combinations are whimsical and cheery, but also chic and sophisticated. There is literally something for everyone in this collection, and every piece is priced below $120.
