If you enjoyed our Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week coverage of some important jewelry debuts from Mikimoto and Swarovski in January, you might be tracking the must-have accessory coming out of “regular” Paris Fashion Week, which wrapped last week.
Aaaand that would be a surgical face mask.
Gotta say, that’s a trend we hope goes away very, very soon.
Fortunately L.A.-based jewelry brand Shay had much more enticing options to show a select group of buyers in town for the shows.
Shay, the brand created by mother-daughter duo Tania and Ladan Shayan in 2002, set up a strategic perch on the Place Vendôme for just one glamorous weekend. There they introduced three new collections on top of their diamond and gemstone-encrusted signature pieces: chunky pavé link bracelets, stackable chokers, super-sexy lariat and Y necklaces, and the slinkiest hand-chains that feel sharp and angular with their baguettes and bezels, but also Belle Epoque–lyrical.
Here are from standouts from each of the three lines.
Spirals and Scales is all about mermaid-tail shimmer, spiky edges, and styles that drape fluidly, or offer a kind swishy movement in the form of fringe.
Ice is a celebration of diamonds in a multitude of cuts, many of them gloriously jumbo-size, and a few of them paired with vibrant yellow diamonds, sapphires, or emeralds.
Deco Eye commingles Shay’s longtime affinity for Art Deco geometrics with a familiar, cross-cultural amuletic motif: the evil eye.
