To start the new decade Town and Country dedicated its first issue to the jewelry that has made a significant impact in fashion throughout the years. The magazine explored the importance of these treasured trinkets based on craftsmanship, monetary worth, and sentimental value. It was the article by Stellene Volandes titled “Aerin Lauder on the Jewels that Made History” that captured my attention. The style synopsis took me on a memorable journey that included my own jewelry box.
The museum-worthy photos of Aerin by Ruven Afanador showcased the prestige of the pearl, the sparkle of the diamond, and rebellious radiance from the natural beauty of turquoise. The story also shared the exclusive glitter worn by the notable icons that continue to influence the runway today.
Aerin outlined the different contexts these decorative ornaments can portray. The family heirloom, a meaningful keepsake or the timeless tradition of gift-giving. All meaningful connotations that allow the best moments in life to linger-on.
In honor of all this wonder, I want to share selections from The Vault at Saks Fifth Avenue. The floor hosts the jewelry and timepiece designers that have endured the test of time alongside the modern mavens of the day. The new destination offers a lasting custom for luxury shopping that will hopefully continue to prevail.
