Jack Kelége’s New XO Forever Gold and Diamond Jewelry Collection

Jack Kelége gave retailers at JCK LUXURY 2015 at peek at his new XO Forever jewelry collection but has since beefed up offerings considerably. The eight-SKU, 18k gold line comprising bangles, earrings, and bands aims to bridge the gap between the Los Angeles–based designer’s wedding jewelry and fashion-forward looks through sweetly sculpted hugs and kisses—an easily recognized and understandable concept for consumers. Styles also feature brilliant-cut colorless diamonds and milgrain edges as frame links in some styles.

“I wanted to expand upon a traditional XO motif with something fluid and romantic,” Kelége told the press upon release of the news. “So I added in the spirit of the infinity symbol—a variation on a horizontal number 8—to give the pieces movement. This idea of XO + infinity seemed entirely appropriate for both brides and couples well into their marriages.”

Suggested retail prices start at $5,950, and necklaces will appear in the line December. Pieces are already shipping to stores, and the buy-in for the collection is $26,000.
