I happen to be passing Henri Bendel the other day, while they were having a jewelry trunk show for nOir — I absolutely love their rings. They’re a perfect mix of pop art and cocktail chic.
I bought the Bubble Dome Ring in turquoise, though with yellow clearly shaping up to be the color of the season I’m tempted to buy another one. The piece is definitely a conversation starter and is a simple way to spice up even the most boring outfit.
Personally, I’ve always felt that more-is-more with jewelry and that at least one finger deserves some drama so restraining myself when faced with so many wonderful pieces was a rather arduous task.
However, if a flashy ring isn’t your style, nOir has some wonderful earrings and bracelets. Though, they too, are not for the feint of heart and are somewhat reminiscent of Kenneth Jay Lane’s jewelry pieces, there is a touch of humor that gives them the rare quality of being both kooky and undeniably glamorous.
