So we all see Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen on the red carpet with the most beautiful and unique jewelry you could possibly imagine. They design jewelry for their high end line, The Row, but it's not quite in the average girl's budget.
I hope you're sitting down...
Ashley and Mary-Kate have launched a studio series collection with JewelMint and each piece is under 40$. I repeat, EACH PIECE IS UNDER 40$.
There's also a fabulous discount code floating around right now for first time buyers, it's B1G1, you buy one and get one free!
It was definately hard to choose just two pieces to order, but I finally decided on the Pavo and Pegasus Earrings. They're absolutely sensational!
The best part of the collection is that it's inspired by the cosmo's which is fabulous news to a telescope toting star-gazer like myself.
In a recent interview with Lucky Magazine, the two shared their design philosophy. “We focused on minimalist designs that can be mixed, matched and layered, yet are strong enough to wear on their own,” says Mary Kate. Like the twins’ designs from their other lines, these new pieces, which were inspired by and named after celestial formations, are refined and elegant, the perfect statement pieces to wear for years to come.
Lucky: All the jewelry in this collection features tiny scattered stones. What inspired that?
Ashley Olsen: We drew inspiration from constellations and created versatile pieces that transition easily from day to night.
Mary-Kate Olsen: We focused on minimalist designs that can be mixed, matched and layered, yet are strong enough to wear on their own.
If you could only save one piece of jewelry from your own personal collections, which would you pick and why?
AO: Every piece of jewelry has special meaning to me. I would never be able to choose just one.
How would you choose to style the jewelry you've designed?
AO: I love the idea of layering structured pieces with the more delicate ones. Pair the Hydra bangle with the Lynx hand chain.
MKO: If you have multiple earring holes, wear a pair of the Pyxis drop earrings in the same ear for an asymmetrical look.
Let's talk about the bags. Why little pouches rather than some other (perhaps larger) shape?
AO: We always design with functionality in mind. Each pouch can be carried as a clutch or used to hold everyday items, including makeup and jewelry.
What are a few things you always keep in your own clutches?
AO: My phone, credit card, keys and Cle de Peau concealer.
MKO: Glossier lip gloss, Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip lip liner, keys, my phone and a credit card.
