Designers to Watch
3 LA jewelry designers to watch and wear
Things you would be a fool to leave home without: your iPhone, your credit card, your lip gloss, and your sunnies. Add one more thing to that list: a striking piece from one of these LA jewelry designers.
Why is this a must? Well, you’re not only showing off your hometown pride, but you’re supporting creative locals who devote their days to making yours a more stylish world. And that’s no fool’s gold, fool!
Ariel Gordon Jewelry: Designer Ariel Gordon is as inspired by the confidence of the everyday girls who stroll the streets of LA as she is by their creativity. According to Ariel, no one should walk out the door without her Love Knot Pinky Ring, especially the pavé diamond version. From a day at the beach to a date at the Hollywood Bowl, it works. Other Ariel designs you have to score? Sugar Loaf Studs and a Silk Friendship Bracelet — Ariel’s modern twist on a classic piece. Next up: more personalized goods and mini-animal necklaces.
Saint Vintage: Paige Jansen-Nichols draws inspiration from the fashionistas who saunter down Beverly at lunchtime, wearing crafty color combos. Who loves her? Well, Emma Roberts is a fan of the Love Strand (and you should be too). It’s versatile, sexy, and benefits cancer research. But for those looking to show off their royal side, you’ve got to score the Crown Ring. Inspired by a family heirloom from the 1700s, this conversation piece shows your historical smarts and your vintage style. Next up: antique vintage crystal and rhinestone brooches.
Bri Hana Jewelry: When you spent your childhood traveling the world, what else would you do but design striking jewelry? That’s what local gem Stacey Johnson did. Her travels inspired her to blend elements of nature with modern style. Pieces that will enhance your life include the Jade Nugget Necklace with its double chain and weighty gem hanging down. The Lori Wire Bracelet is a 14k gold bracelet with a gold evil eye charm that’s sprinkled with diamonds. If you’re going to keep the bad at bay, you might as well do it with decadence!
