Just in case you missed that powder blue crocodile Birkin on auction over at Heritage and happen to be in the mood for luxe let me introduce you to my latest bauble obsession.
Irene Neuwirth is kind of like of the Isabel Marant of jewels in my book. Everything she churns out oozes effortless cool and plays well with anything from a cocktail dress to leggings. Despite falling within the fine jewelry realm, her excellent choice of semi precious stones like quartz, moonstone, opal and black onyx mixed with the category staple, diamonds, takes what could be considered Upper East Side and brings it back down earth and most importantly Greene Street. The vivid coloring and gorgeous shapes also add to the overall beauty in each piece making the word statement piece a bit understating.
A Southern Cali native, Irene has been making jewelry since her early 20s but her brand didn't see major growth until 2003 after presenting Barneys with a capsule collection they couldn't say no to. Since then her baubles have been on the likes of Angelina Jolie, Katie Holmes and Doutzen Kroes with the brand receiving such recognition as the Town & Country Couture Design Editors' Choice Award in 2006 and Irene becoming a CFDA member in 2009. And as if adding fuel to the fire, her recent union with financial specialist and major jewelry fan Tracy Stoll, I am pretty sure these gorgeous baubles won't disappear out of store cases anytime soon. Which is perfect because at least I'll have time to save up for a pair of earrings...
