Brand: Rachel Leigh
Origin: United States
Jewelry designer Rachel Blumenthal cut her fashion teeth as a publicist for Yves Saint Laurent. At the suggestion of fashion editors and buyers, she launched her own “new look” in 2004: Rachel Leigh, a bold line that’s chic and well ahead of the style curve. Rachel Leigh cuffs, drop earrings and chain necklaces are constructed from a mélange of materials — satin ribbon, seed beads, snakeskin and antique gold — and she strikes an elegant note with her gorgeous enamels in of-the-moment colors. The line has garnered much-coveted editorial space in Vogue and Elle, and is a fave of downtown-uptown Gossip Girl Blake Lively.
