ZOE CHICCO 14K Gold Pearl & Diamond Bypass Ring

Like Prince sang, “If I gave you diamonds and pearls, would you be a happy boy or a girl??”—the answer to that question is a resounding YES! Growing up, I always saw my grandmother in her statement pearls. Whether it was a pair of stud earrings, a doubled up strand around her neck, or a dainty ring, she made sure to regularly incorporate them into her accessory rotation.

 Back in the day women used to reserve their pearls for a special occasion or when they wanted to feel pulled together and proper. But now, pearls seem to be popping up in a casual, louche way that screams Jane Birkin cool and preppy all at the same time. There are pearl adorned hair clips, bags, shoes, even this sexy 70s-esque tank from Donni.

Designers like Pearl Collective and State Property have modernized an otherwise staid classic by adding spikes and unique settings to toughen it up. Maya Brenner and Zoe Chicco have added their own twists too and I love these feminine earrings and rings that can be worn everyday. 

STATE PROPERTY Inversion Earrings

Pearls add texture and depth to that stack of fine gold chains that I know you wear everyday so I encourage you to look in your jewelry box, find your strand from 8thgrade, and give it a whirl!

Chatting with Kelly Urban

AMO makes the kind of jeans that you want to (and can!) throw on first thing in the morning…just like they do in the movies. They are born from a place where comfort and fit are paramount, and that attention to detail makes for the perfect everyday pair. AMO is a thoroughly modern line but also references the heyday of vintage denim in sunny California, thus capturing a freewheeling spirit that imbues this LA-based brand. Kelly Urban, the co-founder and designer of AMO, has the recipe down: she keeps every season of their essential wardrobe staples fresh with a level of cool that’s just baked in. Our closet chock full of their pairs is straight up proof—we’re AMO loyalists for lyfe!
