What you wear can be just as much a jumping off point for discussions of the world at large as where you've been. Let your jewelry set the conversational climate, let it show you for the worldly sophisticate you truly are, no matter how long it's been since you've been abroad. 

 

 

Any piece in our LARA BOHINC collection will easily invite talk of the London's timeless modernity. You can tell your friends or coworkers that the London-based designer has studied in England and in her native Slovenia. Even in childhood, she loved the color red, and favors red lipstick. Why not pair bright red lips of your own with a piece from her quartz and gold / silver Planetaria collection? 

 

 

For a taste of Paris, try ALEXANDRA MARGNAT on for style.

Let your accessories do the talking, and let your mind wander...all over the world.
Fall is here to, with all its moody mystery, thick sweaters, warm hearths. October energy is beckoning, with gourds and galas, as the twilight hours lengthen and we settle in, cozy at home, for this last temperate season before winter. Naturally, this shift in seasons necessitates a shift in style. This fall, we're feeling warm, golden tones and inspired textures.
Our ALEXANDRA MARGNAT Hoop and Charm Gold Earrings make a stunningly elegant addition to any autumn wardrobe. The 18 karat yellow gold is warm and rich, with a shape reminiscent of falling leaves and a texture as smooth as a pond's surface at sunset. These would add a touch of bold grace to a turtleneck for a daytime look, or pair perfectly with a jewel-toned party dress.

 

 

Of course, nothing evokes warmth like rose gold. Our INA BEISSNER Bell Stud Earrings are plated in 18 karat rose gold, adding subtle texture and color to any look. Perfect for the office with a smart, sleek bun. 

 

 

 
Berlin-based designer Ina Beissner is just like one of your friendliest girlfriends. She creates jewellery with a strong vision of clean elegance with her sharp German craftsman skills.

NAME:  Ina Beissner
 

HOME BASE: Berlin, Germany
 

HOW DID YOU BECOME A DESIGNER?  First I studied fashion design in Berlin. During the preparations for the presentation of my final collection at the fashion academy, I discovered a few corals made of plastic. I was fascinated by the shape and the color, they fit perfectly with the theme of my collection ‚Plastic Paradise’.  I had to incorporate them, so I designed a mini collection of jewelry as a supplement to the fashion collection. I combined them with metal chains, plastic threads and sequins. The result was spectacular, so much that my teacher and some jurors had praised the jewelry collection more than the fashion collection. That was the moment when my pasion for jewelry had been fortyfied and I decided to go to Milan to get specialized in jewelry.  
            



WHAT INSPIRE YOU THE MOST / WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION? I get my inspiration from industrial and geometrical shapes and some childhood memories. But also from architecture, art and blogs. I love the aesthetics on www.bespectacular.blogspot.de

DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL JEWELRY WHICH WAS PASSED ON FROM YOUR FAMILY OR HAS ANY SPECIAL MEANING TO YOU (LUCKY CHARM ETC)?  
My grandmother was very religious. She also had a huge passion for jewelry. After her death, all her grandkids received one of her gold medal pendants with religious images of her little collection. I chose the image of the Virgin of Altagracia, the patron saint of the Dominican Republic, where my mother´s family is from.
