The Wanderlust Collection

Designer Steven Lagos loves to travel.  This incurable wanderlust was the inspiration behind his most recent collection. Taking cues from the name, the Wanderlust Collection is an exploration of gemstones from around the world.   Many of the locations Steven Lagos has visited are represented in these exclusive designs.

The earrings and necklaces that make up the collection are all created with specific gemstones in mind.  In the words of Steven Lagos, “When we’re selecting stones, I’m always fascinated by color first. I don’t really think about it in a traditional sense. When I’m working on a piece, perhaps you can come up with a color that’s unexpected or has a bit of matrix to it that gives it more interest. “ It’s this attitude toward color that truly guides this collection. It features deep violet iolite from India, rhodolite from Brazil, Burma and Africa, and the exceptionally rare Tsavorite, which can only be found in Tsavo National Park in Tanzania.  These stones are gracefully brought together in complementary color designs to conjure different locales.

The first design brings together the warm reds which echo fine vintage wines.  It uses smoky quartz, diamonds, citrine, garnet and rhodolite gemstones to create a dramatic color palate of the Far East.

A second design brings together the cool blues of the ever shifting Caribbean Sea.  Gemstones such as Blue topaz and sapphire evoke the brilliant blue of a coral atoll and the sparkling shallows of sandy beaches.

The third design in the collection pulls together majestic purples gemstones. The striking royal purple and pale, dawn-light lavender of amethyst, peridot, blue topaz, and lemon quartz gemstones evokes mountain ranges in midsummer.

These unique pairings are exclusive to LAGOS.com and completely one-of-a-kind.  Each gemstone was hand selected to create a design entirely its own.  No two designs are the same and only a limited quantity were created, certainly a must have items for the gemstone connoisseur.  Check out the full collection here.

Up Close With Gold

The Caviar Gold Collection

At LAGOS craftsmanship, quality and beautiful design are some of our top values.  When it comes to creating each new collection, the quality of our materials is a key element of what makes LAGOS so special.  Our Caviar Gold Collection is no exception, each design element is carefully considered to ensure the material and color are unsurpassed.

Our gold styles are crafted in 18K gold, a material that is equal parts luxurious and wearable. The color, the luster, the texture are hallmarks of the LAGOS design details. Each style is wearable sculpture that becomes a second skin to be styled confidently every day.

Designer Steven Lagos specifically chose the subtle shade because it perfectly complements all skin tones and pairs well with our sterling silver and two-tone designs.  It was a natural choice to guarantee that all pieces from any of our collections can be mixed, matched and stacked together.  It’s how we make sure you can wear Your LAGOS, Your way.

Each piece in our collection is created with our signature Caviar beading, proprietary to the brand.  Many of our collection pieces are created with a technique called ‘nesting’.  This is a specific way of placing the Caviar beads so that they nestle together for a design that is both strong, fluid and comfortable to wear.

Of course, since gold is a natural element it requires some care to maintain its natural shine.  Make sure to avoid harsh chemicals when wearing any of your LAGOS Caviar Gold Collection.  For those rare times when you aren’t wearing your favorite design, store it in your LAGOS pouch.

We love seeing how you wear your favorite LAGOS pieces.  Share your style with us by tagging @lagos_jewelry or using the hashtag #MyLAGOSMyWAy in your social posts.

Royal Wedding Approved

Jewelry for the Wedding of the Season

In honor of the Royal Wedding we sat down with Jenna Colgrove of the fashion blog Visions of Vogue to get her take on the event.  Jenna is a self-proclaimed, “sucker for all things Royal” and cannot wait to see the dress Meghan Markle chooses to walk down the aisle.   Ahead of the big day Jenna is wearing some of her favorite LAGOS pieces to celebrate the glamour of the day.

Meghan Markle is the ‘California cool’ American actress joining the Royal family this spring and she has a style that celebrates her roots.  Taking notes from Meghan’s style Jenna chose to mix pieces from two of our most luxe collections: Diamond Lux and Caviar Spark.  These collections feature diamonds and caviar beading set in a classic design. Each piece is a beautiful nod to traditions, made for celebrating milestones and passing down jewelry from one generation to the next.

Jenna chose the Diamond Lux Diamond Ring and Diamond Lux Bracelet as traditional styles perfect for bride or wedding guest alike.  To add a bit of modern styling to her look Jenna added several pieces from the Caviar Spark Collection.  She wears the Caviar Spark Diamond Bracelet alongside her Diamond Lux piece.  For necklace she keeps it simple with a Caviar Spark Diamond Necklace and of course, drop earrings.

While Jenna may not be on the guest list you can be sure she’ll be tuning in on May 19th to watch the Royal Nuptials, wearing her favorite LAGOS pieces of course!

“I love accessories! They tie together your outfit. Some people look at jewelry as this secondary step when getting dressed. For me, my accessories help tell the full story.”

Denise describes her favorite LAGOS piece as a tie: “I love the structured Caviar bracelets, but I also really love the Caviar stackable rings with those delicate center stones. Stacks on stacks on stacks!” Her Mother’s Day selection of classic Caviar bracelets paired with the new diamond Caviar cuff and 18k gold stretch bracelet creates an effortless statement stack.

Denise’s selection of diamonds, Caviar and 18k gold make a perfect present for Mother’s Day. The idea gift should be easy-to-layer, every day pieces that she will truly make her own. Don’t forget the Kinder pearl bracelet for the little one.
