Behind the Baubles: KALAN by Suzanne Kalan

image

Suzanne Kalan started her jewelry line in 1988 after her daughter, Patile, was born. Patile joined the industry nearly 25 years later and began designing the KALAN by Suzanne Kalan collection. Set with diamonds and white sapphires, the candy-colored baubles are just as bright and optimistic as Patile herself.

Items from the collection are available at various retailers, including Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue (there’s a 20% Friends & Family discount on jewelry that you can use right now), and Amazon

Giveaway | Gerard Yosca Necklace

image

I hope you had a relaxing Easter weekend with enough candy to hold you over until next year. And there’s one more holiday surprise to brighten your week: two people will win a Gerard Yosca single bloom necklace

I’ve been going on and on about how much I adore Gerard’s latest collection, inspired by an A. Quincy Jones home in L.A. Each piece is a large-scale statement, yet remains versatile and easy to wear. I even wore the stonebloom necklace in a trio of looks last week (one, two and three), proving that just one great piece can be enough to get you through the season—and I can’t wait to see how the winners style their necklaces! 

Two readers will take home this perfect spring blossom in white or black. (The first person selected will have her choice of the two and the other will go to the second winner.) The giveaway is open to those with a United States mailing address. Good luck!

Bauble of the Week

Bill Skinner, $72

I hope you’re having a “hoppy” Easter Sunday! If you’re going to wear a rabbit motif, today’s the day to do it. This golden hare ring is an adorable option from Bill Skinner and it even has a trendy pearl accent. (You won’t find me bedecked in gems today. I’m planning to hang out on the couch, eat my weight in candy and finish House of Cards.)

1 Necklace, 3 Ways | Look 3

After nearly three years of searching, I finally found my perfect LWD at Banana Republic (ordered before my shopping hiatus, of course). And, what do you know, it looks fab with the Gerard Yosca necklace I’ve been wearing all week (looks one and two). Proof that just one great statement piece is enough to get you through the season.

1 Necklace, 3 Ways | Look 2

image

The best sartorial dollar you can spend is on a statement piece that goes with everything. I’ve been wearing this Gerard Yosca necklace almost exclusively since I received it, so three outfits featuring the bauble this week wasn’t much of a challenge! Today, I strayed away from Monday’s mod attire in favor of something classic and feminine. A full skirt can become saccharine awfully quickly, but the necklace’s graphic flowers and a bright crossbody bag keep the look from being too prim.

Behind the Baubles: Lacee Alexandra

image

Inspired by the organic imperfection of nature and decay, Lacee Norris launched Lacee Alexandra, a jewelry collection that embraces these forms in a sophisticated, wearable way. Lacee’s artistic nature was apparent at a young age when she spent time in her grandmother’s studio painting miniatures. In 2008, she began studying fine art and design at California State University Long Beach and enrolled in her first jewelry making class on a whim, igniting a passion for what would eventually become her career. Lacee still resides in Long Beach, hand crafting her collection with sterling silver, 14k gold, black spinels and black diamonds. 

Lacee is offering B&B readers a 30% discount through April 29! Just use code BAUBLES at checkout!

1 Necklace, 3 Ways | Look 1

image

I’m such a proponent of investing in quality accessories that you’ll wear over and over again—and I have no doubt that, in time, the cost per wear of that statement splurge will be lower than a cheaper alternative. Gerard Yosca’s latest collection is full of these versatile statement pieces, so when the team challenged me to style one necklace three ways this week, I jumped at the chance. First up, a mod shift dress that matches the mood of the black and white necklace. I’ve been wearing this to work quite a bit over the last few weeks (sadly, with tights), but it’s just as fun for weekend wear with pointy black flats

Bauble of the Week

No, as a matter of fact, I’m not done obsessing over pearl jewelry and this pair of earrings from Hortense is my favorite yet. The double pearl bars come in a combination of grey and white or all white and they’re actually a pretty good deal at $184 considering they’re made of solid 14k gold and real pearls.
