After a brief stint working in Hollywood as an actress, Soixante Neuf Jewels designer Joie Jager decided that her best shot at living a glamorous lifestyle lay in jewelry-making. Her distinctive New York-based line boasts an impressive selection of rings, including filigree designs made from gold-plated sterling silver, two-inch scratched silver rings, and bejeweled cocktail rings clustered with a single birthstone or a unique carving. Ball-shaped lockets for storing tiny treasured photos, irreverent skull necklaces, chiseled wood earrings, and hefty cuff bracelets are just some of Soixante Neuf’s other glittering creations. Soixante Neuf Jewels' jewelry, cutting-edge clutch bags and hats have appeared in prominent fashion publications such as <i>Lucky</i> and <i>WWD</i>.
Discover colorful, ornately wrought pieces from four byzantine-loving jewelry designers. We’re particularly fond of Taara’s enameled, stone-embedded bangles and the delicate, fan-shaped chandeliers with turquoise beads from Soixante Neuf. While simpler looks abound, like streamlined disc earrings and a mixed-metal ring, it’s really the intricate, arabesque designs that make the most impact.
This gorgeous collection of jewelry by Soixante Neuf includes vintage-inspired pieces (filigree cuffs, lock-and-key pendants) and of-the-moment looks (crystal bib necklaces, multi-stone rings). Whether you like your baubles soft and sweet (iolite-cluster necklace, pink-quartz bead chains) or notice-me-now (oversize raw-stone rings), designer Allison Schiller has something perfect for you, too.
Just when you think you’ve stumbled onto a cache of classic-looking jewels, know that these require a second glance. Take, for example, the dainty gold pendant that’s actually a tiny bell with working clapper, or the gold and glass locket, which can be filled or left translucent to gorgeous effect. Other standouts include a wooden cuff with grommeted holes and oversized ring, dotted with caviar-like turquoise.
The rough-hewn, handcrafted quality of this collection gives each piece an air of the organic. The ring with three quartz stones set inside brushed gold is particularly pretty, and cuff bracelets with textural finishes like hammered gold and brushed silver are the season’s hottest accessory. Complement your night-out updo with chandelier earrings fringed with pearls or green onyx.
