If your BFF isn't the jewelry editor for your favorite fashion 'zine, giving you the heads up on new designers and seasonal product as it rolls through the halls of Hearst on the daily, then Team Peridot is here to "daylight" as your most fashionable friend. And every girl needs a gal pal like that.

This is the antithesis of the editorial "magazine" approach to "trend" jewelry. We are on the hunt for pieces that are fashionably relevant now and forever. Sometimes translating current trends means layering in a new piece to the necklaces you already wear everyday, and sometimes it's about adding natural diamonds to stack in with your traditional bridal set. And yes, sometimes it's even a whole new statement earring or long, faceted strand of fine stone.

For our client's, that can mean distinctive items that present just as beautifully over your white t-shirt and Lululemon's when you're picking up kid #three at school, as they do paired with feminine prints and exaggerated accessories for a lunch about town. The right shade of nail lacquer (pictured earlier: Essie's "Picked Perfect") is as much a staple this September as leather fringe, cozy wrap sweaters, and vintage designer chain link purses. We're also seeing a huge pick up in pearls, whether on handmade gold ear wires or more casual cord necks.

After all, capes come and go, but a [natural] diamond is forever. #PeridotStyle
Although faint, that familiar crisp has returned to the late summer air. It smells the way biting into a freshly picked apple tastes and feels, and it layers well with light weight scarves, jean jackets, natural diamonds and refined gold chains. With the changing leaves and turn of seasons, September brings freshly forecasted Fall Trends. Below, our official report on how to wear what this Autumn, and it's pearly, pendanty, and perfectly Peridot. Featuring new works by Temple St. Clair, Yasuko Azuma, Rosanne Pugliese and Margery Hirschey, curated especially for those weekends upstate picking wine saps and pears, or for roaming around SoHo with the obligatory Pumpkin Spice beverage in hand. #PeridotStyle
If you haven't gotten the memo, pearls are oh so back! Not that they necessarily ever went out of style, but this time around designers are creating innovative new pieces that stray away from the traditional freshwater pearl necklace. Here's a glimpse of the trend.... long tahitian necklace by Lena Skadegard, and tahitian pearl pendant necklace, mother of pearl earrings and pink pearl ring all by Jamie Joseph. Head to our site to find more pearls by both designers, or as always give us a call at (914) 833- 7333 for further inquiries!
