Gemstone to Know: Mother of Pearl

The newest addition to our Maya Collection is the perfect piece for your summer wardrobe: Mother of Pearl.  At LAGOS, mother of pearl is one of our favorites, it is characterized by its pretty white coloration and unmistakable iridescent sheen.  Evocative of the beach, this material is unique because it is found on the inside of sea shells. Mother of pearl often has a mutli-colored luster that adds a faint glow when it catches the light.  Clearly the perfect accessory for your next beach trip.

Similar to a lovely day by the ocean, mother of pearl is believed to have stress-relieving properties.  It is said to bring calmness and stimulate creativity in the wearer.

This season, we have explored several different styles in mother of pearl.  A statement ring surrounded by a halo of sterling silver Caviar beads adds shimmer to any look.  Dramatic drop earrings add a touch of summer chic and are easy to style with a breezy dress. Maya necklaces are made to be layered. Paired over a simple tank top for a causal summer lunch can be just the right look. Mother of pearl also looks great with other gemstone colors like turquoise and lapis. We recommend mixing and matching different pieces in a variety of layers for a look that is truly your own! Your LAGOS your way!

Layers to Love: Stacking Rings

Layering your jewelry is a chic way to accessorize.  A fun trend is styling multiples of stacking rings.  Stacking rings are usually more delicate which makes them easy to layer together.  Not sure where to get started in trying this trend? We have several quick tips below to make sure your look is stacked to perfection. Also have fun, there is no wrong way to wear LAGOS. It’s your LAGOS, your way.

  1. Choose a main metal. Selecting one type of metal (18K gold vs. sterling silver) will help set the tone for what you stack. It also allows for you to play with texture, in our case the sizes of Caviar beading.
  2. Play with numbers. You don’t need a ring on every finger and you don’t have to match both hands. Uneven numbers are interesting, try three rings on one hand and 1 on the other or any other variation you can think of.
  3. Look for rings with special detail like a small gemstone to add variation. Or if you find a gemstone style you really love, buy several in different stone varieties.
  4. Don’t be afraid to change it up! You can mix and match until you find a combo that you really love. There isn’t a wrong way to stack.

At LAGOS we love our stacking rings, and we also love to see how you style them.  Share your stacking ring style with us on Instagram with the hashtag #MyLAGOSMyWay!

This bracelet is the next evolution of Caviar jewelry. This clever design can be mixed and stacked with any LAGOS style.  The watch bracelet is expertly handcrafted in sterling silver, sterling silver with 18K gold and diamond pave.

Keep Memory Alive: A LAGOS Collection

For more than 20 years, LAGOS has supported Keep Memory Alive and its efforts to research and care for those suffering from brain diseases.   It is a cause that is very close to Founder and Creative Director Steven Lagos. He watched his grandparents suffer from Alzheimer’s, witnessing firsthand the toll it can take on families and caregivers alike. Through this experience he realized how difficult it is for everyone involved and has been committed to Keep Memory Alive ever since.

In addition to making generous donations in the name of research, Steven designed an exclusive sterling silver collection inspired by the intricate curvature of the Foundation’s Frank Gehry-designed headquarters.  In the words of Steven Lagos, “Jewelry is a physical manifestation of memories… it was important for me to create something that would act as a memory in itself, while giving back to this fantastic organization that focuses on memory disorders.”

As a result, 100 percent of the purchase of the collection benefits Keep Memory Alive.  The proceeds benefit the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health and its research.  To make your own contribution you can shop the latest LAGOS designs or make a donation to the center here.

Layers to Love: How to Style your LAGOS Necklaces

Layered jewelry is one of the coolest trends for the spring and also here at LAGOS.  With warm temperatures approaching some freshly styled necklaces can easily take the place of your favorite scarf.  Layering necklaces is a fun and easy way to add a stylish twist to pieces you already own.   We’ve compiled some key tips that will teach you how to layer necklaces with ease this season.

  1. Start with a mix of necklace lengths

In order to give your layers dimension, each necklace you choose should be a different length.  This ensures that each necklace will shine on its own and not get overshadowed by another pendant or design.

  1. Wear at least 3 necklaces

Once you’ve found several necklaces that will work it’s time to work with what number looks best.  Three is a great place to start, pick necklaces in short, medium and long lengths.  Additional layers should fall in one of these categories.  It helps to shop for extra-long necklaces that can be doubled up for an added bit of style.

  1. Play with different materials

Select from either gold, silver or if you love both, two-tone is a great option.  Mixing metals is versatile, adds dimension and is easy to style with your overall look.

Layering should be fun, don’t be afraid to try several combinations this spring. Shop all of our latest necklace styles from pendants to pearls on LAGOS.com and share your layering style on Instagram with hashtag #MyLAGOSMyWay!

Black Caviar – The Innovative New Styles

A master jeweler and consummate problem-solver, Steven Lagos thrives on the challenges of design.  So it’s no surprise that our Black Caviar collection is one of our most beautiful and innovative.  Black Caviar is the result of over three years of design and craftsmanship expertise.

What makes Black Caviar jewelry so unique?  It’s made from a high-luster ceramic that is crafted like gold or silver and never loses its shine owing to the scratch resistant nature of the ceramic.  When asked about the new material, Steve acknowledged, “I love to experiment with texture, scale and color.  Ceramic opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me.”

The ceramic is designed to form delicate beads which are then strung using an exceptional and unique technique known as nesting.  Nesting allows for the beads to rest snugly together to form a smooth rope-like strand that elegantly hugs the wrist.

This season the collection exudes confidence, polish and poise.  Each new piece features sterling silver and fine diamonds which create a striking contrast to the black Caviar beads.  When asked why this collection is so strong, Steve explains, “I suspect a lot of its success is due to the way Black Caviar makes women feel… it always feels right – wherever, whenever and whoever you are.”

This season’s new styles are instant classics, the collection features art deco-inspired earrings, rings, and pendants that can be easily worn with many of the other LAGOS collections.
