LAGOS PARTNERS WITH THE BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION (BCRF)

We here at LAGOS are excited to announce a partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) on an exclusive new Smart Caviar style.

Each Smart Caviar bracelet has been designed with a lovely pink ceramic bracelet, complemented by the brand’s signature Caviar beading. We will donate 20% of each bracelet sale to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). This is the perfect memento to benefit a very special cause.

The BCRF funds research in key focus areas including tumor biology, treatment, prevention, survivorship, metastasis, and heredity & ethnicity. BCRF is the largest private funder of breast cancer research worldwide. The statistics around breast cancer are devastating and one of the many reasons it is a cause the LAGOS family supports. One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, and one is diagnosed every 2 minutes.  LAGOS is proud to be able to contribute to the ongoing and necessary research.

“Breast cancer is something that has impacted so many of those close to me,” said LAGOS Founder and Creative Director Steven Lagos. “It became obvious that we could do something special that could potentially benefit so many. We support those that are fighting this disease, we support the survivors, and we will never give up hope on finding a cure.”

The BCRF Smart Caviar bracelet is the newest addition to one of the most beloved and innovative LAGOS collections. Designed for the modern woman, this style is versatile enough for everyday wear but also adds effortless style transforming the Apple Watch into a piece of fine jewelry. Additionally, LAGOS will be offering complimentary engraving, and has added a ribbon symbol (a longstanding representation of breast cancer awareness) to its catalog of engravable symbols.

Zen and the Art of Jewelry Maintenance

Stay at home and stay healthy! While you are doing your part to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it’s the perfect time to give your LAGOS pieces some TLC. LAGOS has cleaning systems for every type of jewelry we sell – sterling silver, diamonds, pearls, gemstones, doublets and ceramic! In addition to the cleaning system, head over to the Jewelry Care page to view videos, Step by Step processes and cleaning tips. LAGOS also offers professional cleaning for a minimal fee.

Right now, your evening pieces probably aren’t seeing too much action! While you set them aside to wear at a later date, take the time to store them properly so they are just as sparkly and fetching the moment you pull them out for a long-overdue dinner date or night out with the girls.

Exposure to air can increase the tarnishing of your jewelry, and an improperly stored piece can cause more than a little heartbreak.

Each LAGOS piece comes with a suede pouch. Just use you LAGOS polishing cloth to buff up your piece before placing it in its suede pouch. Make sure not to store more than one piece in each pouch. Jewelry stored together is at risk of scratching one another!

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.
