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!

The LAGOS Family Jewelry Box

We are taking a trip through the LAGOS family jewelry box with Kate Lagos! Read below for her quotes about each piece from the wonderful and diverse LAGOS collection.

“This piece is one of my favorites, as well as my grandmother’s who wore it all the time – so much the catch wore out and had to be updated 5 years ago. It’s one of the first gold pieces my father ever made. He was just learning the craft when my Grandfather commissioned him to make something special for her 46th birthday, in 1979. It’s made of solid 18k gold and you can feel the love. There are 8 links, each in a shape of lips; leaving her a wrist of kisses!”

“This piece is both a pin and an enhancer. It was one of my father’s first production pieces (he made about 35 of these in different colors). It’s made of 18 karat gold with a custom cut “sea-foam” aquamarine center stone. It also features pink tourmaline, blue sapphire cabochons and five diamonds. My grandmother, who we called yiayia (Greek for grandmother) would love to wear this piece as a pin on her coat collar. She also had the option to wear it as a necklace as it was designed to be clipped onto pearls (pictured) or worn on a flat gold chain. This was gifted to her for Christmas in 1983.”

“These bracelets are so fun! One of my father’s first signature pieces. The Wave bracelet. The Waves were created in 1985 and were the first pieces of LAGOS ever advertised in Town and Country magazine. These distinct bracelets were a huge hit. This was my father’s version of the popular “tennis bracelet” fad. The Wave was popular because of the dimension and texture it added to your wrist. They were available in 4 different color options, all in solid 18k gold. Over the years my father gifted my grandmother these one at a time, for different occasions. First the diamond wave, then emerald – which was her favorite stone – ruby as the third and finally blue sapphire to complete the set. All designed to be worn together. This was the beginning of the LAGOS stacking trend!”

18K Gold Jewelry – A beautiful investment

Gold jewelry has long been seen as a staple in jewelry collections around the world. Admired for its beauty, but also for its value. Gold has maintained its desirability throughout the ages.

Gold has an interesting history, and has been used in fine jewelry for millennia. Some sources date its appearance in jewelry as early as 4000 B.C.

One of the reasons it has had such longevity is its inherent value. Oftentimes when the value of the dollar falls against other currencies, investors flock to the security of gold, which in turn, raises gold prices. In times of economic uncertainty, the price of gold soars. For example, gold climbed during the stock market crash of the early 2000s, when there was a 56% decline that lasted two full years. When economic conditions worsen, gold is viewed as an efficient tool for diversifying a portfolio.

A similar trend is emerging currently as our economy falters and unemployment levels are rising quickly. Bank of America raised its 18-month gold-price target to $3,000 an ounce – more than 50% above the existing price record. Now more than ever, the value of gold is evident and unassailable.

At LAGOS our pricing structure stays consistent. We have not raised retail prices on our designs amidst the rising price of gold.  LAGOS is committed to creating good value for our customers. Classic, fine jewelry that is not only beautiful, but also a great asset for the long term.

The Pantone Color of the Year 2020 – LAGOS Lapis

It’s no secret that here at LAGOS we love color.  Our gemstones are some of the best because our Founder and Creative Director Steven Lagos is passionate for treasure hunting.  We were delighted this season when Pantone announced its Color of the Year – Classic Blue.  The rich, saturated color is a perfect match for our Lapis styles.  See how you can wear some of these pieces to be a part of the 2020 trend.

Our Maya drop earrings are one of the latest designs.  Three perfectly shaped circles of lapis layer atop one another to create a pretty earring that pops with color.  These earrings are the perfect piece to pack for your next trip as they add a pretty element to any look.

The Gemstone Bead Bracelet is another great option.  The light bracelet has a pretty 18K gold ball so it will layer beautifully with your gold pieces. The classic rich blue of lapis pairs nicely with a warm sweater or a light spring dress when the weather warms.  Best of all it layers with all of your other LAGOS pieces!

The Caviar Icon Gemstone Necklace is the ideal layering necklace. Delicate lapis beads are strung and finished with a pretty clasp, making this necklace easy to be worn long or doubled up.

How to Style: KSL

Our latest LAGOS collection, KSL, is the result of a design collaboration between founder and creative director, Steven Lagos and his daughter Kate.  Kate is LAGOS’ brand stylist and had the idea for the collection as she was styling at photoshoots. Kate explains, “As a stylist, I’m on set trying to build a jewelry look and there were times where I felt I didn’t have all the styling tools I needed in our toolbox, so I brought design ideas to my father — and we worked together to bring them to life.”

Discover the unique and unexpected ways to wear this new collection with styling tips from Kate Lagos herself.

LAYER

The KSL collection, like all LAGOS collections, was designed to be layered. Kate’s favorite pieces to layer are the delicate necklaces.  The lariat is unique because it can be adjusted to be multiple lengths.  This makes it a perfect complement to existing LAGOS necklaces because it can be worn at any length and add a modern update to your look.

STACK

One of the latest trends Kate admires is stacking rings.  The new collection has rings of varying size so they can be worn together on one finger or individually to make a statement.  Stacking rings worn across multiple fingers is another way to add a modern touch to your look.

STYLE

The KSL earrings are uniquely styled to be worn either day or night. A dainty stud is easily styled for wherever your day takes you. Swap it for a drop earring in the evening for a look with decidedly more drama.  Some of the smallest studs can even be worn in a second hole, because the more LAGOS the better!

As will all of our LAGOS collections, with KSL there is no wrong way to style it.  You wear it #MyLAGOSMyWay.

Introducing KSL

KSL is a brand new, innovative LAGOS collection and also the initials of Kate Shares Lagos, the daughter of Steven Lagos and also the Brand’s stylist. This collection is a design collaboration between the two.

Kate Lagos has jewelry design in her DNA. Not only has she grown up around jewelry all her life, but she also has an innate talent for stacking, mixing and layering to create unique jewelry looks. Becoming the brand stylist was a natural progression for Kate.

KSL was born out of Kate’s desire to infuse a LAGOS look with something modern, sculptural and three-dimensional.

“Like all of our customers, Kate knows what she likes and has a defined personal style,” says Steven Lagos. “KSL reflects her refreshing point-of-view, resulting in a look and silhouette that we haven’t explored before.”

The KSL collection reimagines diamonds and Caviar in architectural shapes to create dimension that’s both modern and bold. It is a fresh new look that includes edgy styles of varying scale, plus lightweight looks designed for layering. It’s available in two-tone sterling silver and 18K gold.  Many of the styles are delicate, airy and fun. They feature the same top-quality materials and expert craftsmanship that LAGOS is known for.

In Kate’s opinion, “The great thing about LAGOS is that we offer a wide variety of styles and silhouettes so there’s something for every woman… KSL is my personal take on our iconic Caviar designs and my contribution to the mix.”

This design collaboration presents a youthful approach to the brand’s classic Caviar designs and introduces LAGOS to a new generation of smart, confident women.
