On the runways during the recent Paris Fashion Week, we noticed oversized grommets, which Nicole Phelps on Vogue.com described as "silver rings," with open space in between, in Altuzarra's Fall 2018 collection. We see a similarity to these circular cutouts, enhanced by metal, and our own signature oculus design! As our designer, Dana, draws inspiration from open space that allows what is behind to shine through, the architectural term, oculus, for a circular opening in a space, is the perfect word to describe the accents both on our jewelry as well as the negative space in Altuzzara's designs. Not to mention, we simply love this stunning Altuzarra collection and became inspired to pair the looks with our own oculus designs.
Below are our five favorite looks from this Altuzarra show, paired with the Dana Bronfman designs that we would wear with them with for a complete "Oculus" outfit-- one that will help you express your truest self, and one you will want to wear for seasons to come!
Our 3D Space Lace Ring in reclaimed 18k yellow gold and raised bezeled diamonds makes the perfect cocktail ring to go with this effortless brown leather dress.
We love the color contrast of warm 18 karat yellow gold, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, and sparkling diamonds of our Turquoise Click Hinge Cuff with this understated yet elegant suede eggplant dress.
We love this Altuzarra leather top with long, dangling earrings, like our light, yet bold Diamonds Dropping On Helena Mirroring Earrings. The mismatching colors in the earrings compliment the crossover top perfectly!
Our Melting Time Brooch is the perfect final touch to any lapel, or for a more artistic look, wear it on the scarf or shoulder of this beautiful, cozy Altuzarra sweater. The brooch's convertibility-- it can be converted to a pendant or shared with the men in your life-- is a bonus!
Last but definitely not least, our Holly Pendant in Black Rhodium-plated Sterling Silver with burnish-set diamonds is a multi-faceted piece that can be worn through any of its circular openings, horizontally, vertically, off-kilter, and layered with other Holly Pendants in different styles. It is our most popular piece, and we couldn't think of a better design to compliment the V-neckline in this look!
No matter what you choose to wear, we hope you let your light shine through!
