There’s a reason Julie Vos jewelry has appeared in the pages of Marie Claire, Lucky, InStyle, Martha Stewart, Lonny Magazine and Vogue.com and also has been featured on the covers of Oprah Magazine and Real Simple–it’s because her pieces are equally inventive and eye-catching. With an elegant meets everyday approach, Vos’s collections, which include bangles, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings and scarves (ranging from $20 to $395) and in many cases, able to be layered for a head-turning look.
I’ve recently been incorporating a trio of Julie Vos pieces into my wardrobe as everyday accessories: a charm bracelet, oversized hoops and a long necklace. Want an example of versatility? I wore the same necklace to meet a visiting prime minister as I did for a casual night out in a fitted t-shirt and skinny jeans!
The 24K gold plate hoops are surprisingly light (i.e. they don’t pull down your lobes) and have a textured, hammered finish giving it an artisan handmade feel. Though light, they’re more substantial than your basic ultra-skinny everyday hoop and has a touch more dimension.
Staying on trend, the Coin & Gem Charm Bracelet (pictured at top at Newport Polo), a statement piece, features coins cast in burnished gold interspersed with perfect rectangular panes of stained glass, transmitting light through it’s prism-like soft blue tone facets.
Finally, the gold plate Lorraine Necklace ($225), with textured gold links interspersed with double-faced faceted gemstone beads, can be worn at full length (39″) or doubled up for a layered look.
The pieces are fun, top quality and truly unique (and some of my new favorites). Julie Vos jewelry is available online at http://www.julievos.com but Newport Stylephile readers can get 20% off any purchase at julievos.com by using the discount code stylephile. Happy shopping!
