The LAGOS Earring Drop is Here

We have exciting news! Today we have launched a super exclusive, limited edition pair of earrings. Unlike anything LAGOS has created before these pieces are the highly coveted, must-have accessory of the fall.

This limited time “drop” is the first of its kind in the fine jewelry market. The new drop earring style is chic, yet classic. They feature our signature Caviar beading with a delicate gemstone to add a touch of color to each pair.

Founder and Creative Director Steven Lagos was fascinated by ‘sneakerhead’ culture and the phenomenon around drop collections. He realized nothing like this had been done for fine jewelry before and knew LAGOS needed to embrace this new way of making jewelry exciting.

We’ve worked with one of our favorite influencers, Shalice Noel to exclusively launch them. Shalice is a well known fashion influencer, busy mom and longtime LAGOS fan.  She chose to style the earrings along side pieces from our Signature Caviar collection. Selecting pieces from our timeless collection really allowed these unique earrings to shine.

We all love having something truly unique, and this is the opportunity to have a special piece that won’t last long. It’s the perfect gift to delight the LAGOS fan in your life or treat yourself.

Discover How to Wear Pearls Everyday

When it comes to classic, sophisticated style, pearls are a mainstay. Pearls exude timeless glamour by adding subtle iridescence to all type of jewelry. Paired with caviar beading, the Luna collection from LAGOS offers timeless allure for all occasions.

Start with Some Subtle Studs

If pearls aren’t currently a staple in your jewelry rotation, starting simple it usually best. This is especially true as many people can feel like pearls should only be worn for fancier occasions. However, that is very much not the case! Pearl stud earrings are a great way to begin your love affair with the understated gemstone.  14K gold posts are great for sensitive ears and a slight hint of caviar beading peeks from behind the pearls to make mixing and matching with your other LAGOS pieces a breeze.

Dress Up Your Wrist

A pearl bracelet can effortlessly add a touch of elegance to any look. The Pearl Caviar Bracelet mixes freshwater cultured pearls with signature caviar beading in sterling silver and 18k gold. A two-tone base of silver and gold is perfectly complemented by the subtle shimmer of pearls for a look that is uniquely LAGOS. This bracelet is a wonderful addition to a cozy sweater at brunch or to a basic black dress for dinner with the in-laws.

Make a Statement with Pearls

If a classic white pearl necklace is too simple for your edgy style, a unique silhouette is a fantastic option. The pearl tassel toggle necklace takes the single pearl strand to the next level. This innovative design features a pearl beaded tassel hanging from a gold and silver toggle clasp.

Mixing pearls with signature caviar beading is a match made in heaven. Add timeless beauty to your jewelry box in 2020 with the Luna pearl jewelry collection from LAGOS. From stud earrings to pearl beaded necklaces, you are sure to find a piece that matches your exceptional style.

Create a Versatile Jewelry Look

Starting your jewelry collection can seem daunting for those trying to curate a collection that reflects a unique style but also features timeless elegance. Luckily, LAGOS offers a large selection of jewelry pieces that are perfect for those trying to build a sophisticated jewelry wardrobe from scratch.

Start Simple

A simple foundation is key when starting your jewelry collection. Focus on pieces that can be worn for a variety of occasions or layered with other pieces for flexibility. This can be easily achieved with signature caviar beaded styles from LAGOS.

A classic beaded bracelet is the perfect start to a sophisticated look. With classic styling, this bracelet can be worn to a job interview for an extra dash of confidence or with a little black dress for that perfect first date. Sterling silver is the perfect complement for almost any outfit that adds a touch of glamour while maintaining subtly. Make your look extra special with an engraving to remind you of a special date or a timeless monogram.

Select a Classic Hoop

When it comes to earrings, the elegant hoop silhouette is ideal for a day to night look. Worn with a sleek ponytail, caviar hoop earrings feature signature caviar beading that adds just a bit of an edge to a daytime style. Let your hair down and add a statement jacket for happy hour with girlfriends. 14K gold posts are suitable for the most sensitive ears while the sterling silver caviar beading can mix and match with your other jewelry pieces.

Create a Subtle Sizzle

While keeping within a single palette it best when building a jewelry repertoire, mixing in other tones is useful for various occasions. Mixing in another metal is the perfect way to branch out from your comfort zone. Opt for timeless gold with a slim gold stacking ring. The slender design can be worn alone or paired with any other rings in your jewelry box. Caviar beading flawlessly blends with other caviar pieces and takes this ring to the next level.

As your style evolves, so will your jewelry box. By creating a base of signature pieces, you will be able to easily blend timeless caviar jewelry with trendy or edgier looks. LAGOS offers plenty of styles that will form a wonderful foundation for years to come.

Steven Lagos, LAGOS Founder & Creative Director: TWO-TONE PIONEER

Back in the day, a woman either chose gold or silver jewelry. It was a big fashion no-no to mix metals. Of course, rules are meant to be broken, and as an innovator and designer Steven did just that. He wanted to give women options and flexibility in styling and wearing jewelry in an effortless way.

Over 40 years ago, Steven introduced two-tone jewelry. Two- tone is the term we use to describe jewelry that incorporates both gold and silver.  You will see it throughout some of our most beloved collection like Caviar Lux, KSL and our Signature Caviar. Like all LAGOS jewelry, versatility and wearability are of utmost importance.

One collection we are particularly excited about is High Bar. This collection amplifies the gold accents for maximum impact. The smooth, reflective gold bars were designed to stand out, creating a breathtaking contrast with the texture of silver Caviar beads. “I love to play with the balance between gold and silver,” says Lagos. “And in High Bar, gold is clearly dominant, which creates a big, bold look.”

This collection is ideal for the collector who likes bold styles full of strong contrast and high shine.

40 years ago, Steven Lagos rewrote the rules on how a woman should wear her jewelry. Essentially, there is no wrong way to wear LAGOS. Mix, Match, Layer, Stack – it’s your LAGOS your WAY.

Maintain Versatility to Two-Tone Styles

LAGOS pays homage to Old Hollywood and Art Deco styles with their two-toned collection! Using both sterling silver and 18K gold calls back to when fashion was dramatic and intentional. While two-toned jewelry is super trendy in 2020, the craftsmanship and classic designs will bring these pieces into the future and on through forever.

Quirky Style & Serious Quality

Flirty and fun, the Signature Caviar Front-Back Stud Earrings start with 18K gold Caviar beads for the stud, and finish with a sterling silver and 18K gold Caviar bead starburst pattern dangling just under your earlobe. LAGOS covered every detail, making the back adjustable to suit the shape of your earlobes and using 14K gold posts for your comfort. These are a dream to wear!

A Perfect Match in Smooth Gold

LAGOS has done something very special with the High Bar collection. The focus of these pieces is a station of highly polished 18K gold that is warm and inviting. While it is possible to just choose one piece from this collection, that’s hard to do when they are just so beautiful in a vignette. Check out the  Drop Earrings, Gold Cuff Bracelet and Caviar Pendant Necklace.

Crafted in a beautiful teardrop shape, each station is unique, inspired and intentional. The Drop Earrings feature an 18K gold teardrop station set in tight sterling silver Caviar beads, with a small gold stud and finished with 14K gold posts for comfort. The Gold Cuff Bracelet features two 18K gold teardrop stations at the opening, with two more 18K gold stations set into sterling silver Caviar beads and finished up with a sterling silver with a hinge clasp.

For a more dramatic look, the High Bar Caviar Pendant Necklace is so special, with elements and features exclusive to LAGOS. The teardrop 18K gold station is surrounded by sterling silver. Caviar beads are hung on a sterling silver chain that adjusts from 18” to 16”. Two heart links (one in 18K gold and the other in sterling silver) decorate the chain and two stations of 18K gold Caviar beads finish off the look.

A Ring in a Class all its Own

Ideal to wear with any other piece from the High Bar or Signature Caviar collections, the High Bar Gold Caviar Ring is truly a one-of-a-kind piece! With an eye-catching station of smooth 18K gold braced on each side by stations of sterling silver Caviar beads, looking away is sometimes not an option. This ring is the perfect gift – it’s fashion forward and is the LAGOS quality and craftsmanship that you trust.

New Engravable Caviar Gold Styles Have Landed

The LAGOS 18K Caviar gold collection is one of our most popular collections. Just recently launched, it’s been an instant hit owing to beautiful, high quality designs. It’s no surprise that founder and designer Steven Lagos wanted to continue to design new styles for the collection. This fall we are thrilled to introduce our latest engravable gold styles.

This new suite is comprised of delicate stud earrings, a pretty ring, bracelet and necklace. Each piece has a small gold circle which is lovely on its own but made even more special with engraving. Our latest engraving options have something for everyone.  Go beyond traditional initials with a cute heart emoji or even an astrological symbol for your birthday.

These pieces are also ideal for layering together when you style them.  The pendant necklace can be adjusted to hang at 2 different lengths so you can style it with ease.  The delicate chain doesn’t tangle so it’s ideal to mix in with your other favorite LAGOS necklaces.  The bracelet is also ideal for layering. It’s lightweight and adds the perfect touch of gold shine to your bracelet stack.

Whether you are looking for the perfect personalized gift or definitely need to treat yourself, the new gold collection is the perfect place to start!

It’s finally here! The new LAGOS Color Switch ring. This is one of our most exciting launches this fall. The new ring is a totally unique take on making your LAGOS style personal.  What makes the Color Switch ring so chic?  In addition to a stunning gold ring, there a 5 sets of colorful ceramic rings that can be mixed and matched to style the ring any way you like.  The ceramic rings come in white, black, light blue, dark blue, and pink.  Best of all, they are all included in the set.

Steven Lagos Discusses Blue Caviar

A New Addition To The Caviar Collections

Dear Friends,

As summer speeds on and we continue to see the state of the world shift, I have been reflecting on current events, but also the course of my career. I founded LAGOS over 40 years ago with a love of jewelry and design. One of the things that initially drew me to jewelry and is an ongoing source of inspiration is color.

This year we introduced Blue Caviar, the latest innovation in one of our signature collections. Blue Caviar is very special to me. I have always loved traveling and have always been drawn to the sea. Last summer I spent time in Greece. The Mediterranean colors of blue and white are truly captivating. The sky, the sea, the architecture, really inspired me and I knew I needed to find a way to interpret it.

The new Blue Caviar collection is truly unique. We were able to come up with a way to create a turquoise blue ceramic that’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. It has a kind of depth and color to it that’s really unusual for jewelry. Naturally, I paired it with sterling silver to introduce a nice contrast that allows for these pieces to be easily layered together with existing LAGOS pieces.

Beyond jewelry, there is a reason that blue is the world’s favorite color. Blue is universal and cuts through culture and geography. It is calming, peaceful and perhaps a mood booster for right now. As we continue to navigate an ever-changing world, I hope that my designs can provide some joy and beauty to your lives. I cannot wait to share the next chapter.

All the Best,

Steven Lagos
