Photo Courtesy CA&LOU JewelleryLuxury costume jewelry brand CA&LOU Jewellery is the collaboration between friends Carolina Neri and Béreng?re Lux, who strive to provide a collection that encompasses handcrafted excellence with the ideal of elegance. The brand launched in 2010 after both women spent years working in the fashion sector for various world-class companies in Italy and abroad. The friends-turned-entrepreneurial powerhouse are experiencing success through their contemporary jewelry line, and both women manage to continue to freelance in strategic and design contexts for major brands and magazines. However, CA&LOU is a product of their hearts and souls, and their Fall 2012 Collection proves it.
Every piece by CA&LOU is designed by Carolina and Béreng?re, representing the pillars that the brand is built on. With lines and graphics that hint to ‘80s glamour and Art Deco, CA&LOU has a vintage flair, to say the least. The versatility of the pieces allows them to be worn day and night, but are also meant to be classic enough to be handed down through generations. To customize the pieces to their clients’ needs, CA&LOU Jewellery has the added attraction of encouraging customers to select materials, colors, and decors of their pieces based on individual tastes, making the pieces truly personal and special.
The bulk of CA&LOU’s collection is made with silver and bronze materials dipped in 24K rose or yellow gold, then enhanced with Swarovski crystals, enamels and semiprecious stones. One of our favorites is the Grace Bracelet, which comes in brass silver, yellow gold, or rose gold, and is plated with Swarovski crystals.
The Iriana Earrings are truly exquisite, featuring hexagonal plates that are studded with Swarovski crystals. These earrings come in brass silver, yellow gold, or rose gold. They would look great with an evening ball gown, or could be the element that gives your less casual outfit something special.
The Marisa Necklace is another favorite. The twisted yellow gold chains of this choker with Swarovski crystal accents is appropriate for every season and could be dressed up for a special occasion or dressed down for an event that is less formal.
