An Opulent Edge: Erickson Beamon Jewelry

by jennine on March 21, 2011

Even the most over the top accessories really rely on the details. When you go over the top with crystal eye masks and head pieces, giant necklaces there’s the fine line between making a statement and just being gaudy. Jewelry design trio Erickson Beamon walks that line and delightfully so. With Swarovski crystals galore mixed with gold plating, they mix trends, vintage inspiration, with something very modern and young. I went to their presentation during fashion week (how did it slip the cracks of my coverage? I love this exhibition) they presented their pieces on ballerinas on scaffolding, and even got the violinist from Black Swan to play creepy classic tunes all night. I loved the mix… like where would you wear a necklace like that… “to the ballet!” Like we ever go to the ballet. Well, one day we will.

I also like how Erickson Beamon has been around since 1983… and they’re quite the cult jewelry label having clients like Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga, yet and doing collaborations with Target and selling on Net-A-Porter,  somehow keeping that emerging vibe. It’s hard to keep it fresh, and these ladies do it.

Karen Erickson and Vickie Sarge have always made exquisite pieces that editors and buyers fought over.

Showroom Seven’s strongest asset.

Besides loving the amazing jewelry, the photos are wonderful! I love the one with the violinist & that hand coming up from the side. Very interesting.

Very nice presentation and gorgeous statement jewellry. I love the giant tutus and the violinist. I like when designers bring a real show to Fashion Week.

Various pieces by Erickson Beamon manage to make there way onto my lust-list every season, but they always remain there. One day… one day I will actually own one! Such gorgeous designs and the workmanship is unbelievable!
