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!

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.

This fall we had the pleasure of getting to know Tylynn Nguyen, a glamorous 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?

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!
