House of Lavande’s vintage costume and couture jewelry isn’t just stunning and exceedingly rare — it’s also highly addictive, particularly for celebrities. Exhibit A: Doe-eyed chanteuse Taylor Swift, who can’t seem to get enough of the label’s old-school glamorous bracelets and earrings. Exhibit B: actress Jessica Alba, who’s hooked on the House’s drop earrings and necklaces from different eras. Founded by Palm Beach-based jewelry connoisseur Tracy Smith, House of Lavande offers a breathtaking range of pieces ranging from 1920s Bakelite, to circa-1950 silver necklaces from Mexico, to 1970s Lucite. Chanel, Kenneth Jay Lane, and Yves Saint Laurent are just some of the luxurious brands you’ll find in Smith’s collection of geometric collars, colorful cluster earrings, oversize cocktail rings, and other baubles. Found at estate sales, flea markets, and private dealers around the world, House of Lavande’s statement pieces will truly be like nothing else in your jewelry box. In 2012 Smith debuted her own line of Italian-made, gemstone jewelry inspired by her experiences as a collector.
