LAGOS Women: Meet Tylynn Nguyen

This fall we had the pleasure of getting to know Tylynn Nguyen, a glamourous and impressive woman.  Tylynn is an accomplished model, creative director, and designer for her eponymous lingerie line, Tylynn Nguyen, which she created to empower the classic and intelligent woman of today.

In addition, Tylynn is a mother of three young children who Tylynn describes as the driving force behind her successes and motivation.  Tylynn works diligently to leave a legacy for her children, and is a gleaming example of elegance and strength.

Her enviably chic life, style, and designs have been recognized by multiple online publications such as MyDomaine, Vogue, Coveteur, and Atelier Dore.

We sat down with Tylynn to learn more about her relationship with jewelry and what it means to her.

Can you share a special memory around a piece of jewelry and what that means to you?

Tylynn Nguyen: My wedding ring. I just adore my husband and my ring is a symbol of our undying love. It isn’t LAGOS but I do believe one buys jewelry to create lasting memories to wear and live on forever.

What about our LAGOS do you love the most?

 

Tylynn Nguyen: I love the consistency of the line and how feminine many of the pieces are without being overly delicate or fussy.  They work perfectly for any occasion or time of day.  It’s truly jewelry you can live in.

What does ‘My LAGOS My Way’ mean to you in terms of styling and wearing your jewelry?

Tylynn Nguyen: To me ‘My Lagos My Way’ means that you can wear the jewelry no matter what your personal style is.  It’s classic and beautiful and truly accentuates the personal taste of the person wearing it.

Say it with Silver…and 18K Gold!

Sometimes it can be difficult to decide between 18k gold and silver when it comes to your jewelry look. Sterling silver offers cool glamour while gold offers a classic allure that is undeniable. At LAGOS, we understand this decision is not one to take lightly. However, instead of picking silver or 18k gold, we designed two-tone jewelry pieces that blend both metals for a unique look that never compromises on style.

When you can’t decide between 18k gold or silver, a two-tone look is the way to go. Two-tone styles provide maximum versatility as they can be effortlessly paired with any of your other jewelry pieces. For a daytime look, a two tone caviar bracelet is the perfect accessory to add classic flair at the office. To take your look into evening, add a two-tone diamond necklace for a night on the town.

If you are aiming for a more subtle way to integrate both metals, try the caviar front-back earrings. With gold on one side and silver on the other, these stud earrings provide a unique and dramatic appeal. They offer ultimate versatility with our unique caviar beading. Pack them for any trip and you will be good to go no matter the occasion.

Two-tone jewelry offers a splash of warmth as 18k gold and sterling silver flawlessly mesh into a single piece. As gold and silver work together, they create a unique look that adds polish and glamour to any style. LAGOS has an extensive collection of two-toned pieces from bangles and cuffs to earrings and pendant necklaces.  Whether your style is more demure and classic or you like to be the talk of the town, there is a piece for you that mixes silver and 18k gold for the ultimate look in accessories.

All About Rings

Gone are the days when your ring finger is the only one that deserves any decoration.  The latest trend in jewelry is stacking rings so it’s time to embrace all 10 or your perfectly manicured pointers.  Stacking rings are one of the easiest jewelry trends to embrace simply because there is no wrong way to style a stack.  Still not sure where to start?  Here are a few ideas to help you get inspired.

  • Play with texture and size. Sometimes mixing metals can be a challenge, so start by just picking one, either silver or gold, and playing with the textures or size of the rings you are stacking.
  • Play with color. Another way to create an interesting look is to keep the size of your stacking rings similar and vary the gemstones you style into the stack.  The more the merrier so stack as many on you like on one finger or spread your rings out over 3 or 4 to vary your look.
  • Make a statement. Sometimes one statement ring isn’t enough.  Stand out and your next event by styling multiple statement rings.  Picking colors that are complementary to your look will pull everything together.
  • Mix and match. Try layering stacking rings with other larger gemstone rings to create unique stacks.  Different looks can be created by styling these two different types of rings together.
