In the make-up world, there are beauty addicts who covet either fashion originated (Dior, Chanel, Tom Ford, YSL etc), skincare (Clinique...) or professionally generated (Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier…) brands.
We find this true in the jewelry world too-with the professional jewelers eponymous collections -the most popular with the adorned. For good reasons…we feel these pieces are the most personally crafted…an extension of the maker's personality and their world.
A chain is the basis for different pendant attachments that completely change the look…double up, loop in the back or front, lariat style …varying the lengths. Or wrap around to wear as a bracelet or belt. Versatile.
