The best news for the holiday jewelry season? Extraordinary fashion jewelry design house Erickson Beamon has launched an exclusive 7-piece jewelry collection with online jewelry retailer Bauble Bar. Seven gorgeous designs that could round out any fashion jewelry collection, and at a price that can justify the splurge.
I’ve been a fan of Bauble Bar since learning about them in 2010. I love their concept, which is to go direct to the fashion jewelry designers that supply high-end stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Berdorf Goodman, and offer very on-trend jewelry to women purchasing for themselves. By operating only online, and eliminating inefficiencies through their distribution model, the prices are fantastic. I would call Bauble Bar my secret weapon for amazing fashion pieces, except that they aren’t so secret anymore.
The collection consists of 3 different palettes: vivid bright gems in unexpected combinations; refined pearls with gold; and–my favorite–clear crystals in darkened metal for smoky, edgy glamour.
Erickson Beamon designers Karen Erickson and Vicki Beamon have been designing together since 1983, and are considered the go to source for very high-end collectible fashion jewelry. Their designs are collected and coveted by fans from Lady Gaga to the First Lady. It’s not unusual for their beautifully crafted necklaces, earrings and bracelets to go for hundreds, sometimes thousands, of dollars.
It’s nice to see well-designed fashion jewelry at the caliber of Erickson Beamon available to consumers at totally accessible prices (the Dirty Glam crystal earrings are just $65!). The pieces are only available through December 31st, 2011, and are made to order once you purchase, with a ship date starting in early November. It’s first come, first shipped, so I recommend placing your order early. You can see the whole collection on the Bauble Bar site here.
