Readers, I know I just blogged about J.Crew in Old Town Pasadena, BUT I wanted to share something truly special with you going on in this boutique-like gem — Lulu Frost’s jewelry line. The backstory? “Lulu Frost is a jewelry brand founded in New York City in 2004 by designer Lisa Salzer. The Frost family, led by Lisa’s maternal grandmother Elizabeth Rock Frost, has been involved in the estate jewelry business for generations. Lisa’s work blends antique, vintage and modern elements to reinvent timeless classics.” says the designer’s website. Antique? Vintage? And modern? I’m hooked.
Not only are her pieces at J.Crew gorgeous and unique, they’re also a steal compared to her signature designs. Take for instance, the Silvertone Collage Necklace for $790 — a statement necklace inspired by the 1920s listed on the Lulu Frost website. Compare that to an equally pizzazy, vintage-inspired necklace at J.Crew (The Lulu Frost For J.Crew Compass Rose Necklace) for just $228. Same with her North Star Earrings at $118, described as “supersweet retro designs with a twist.” We’re talking affordable stunners. (For something a bit more expensive, try her code rings — 14k gold rings with individual numbers ranging from 0-9 laid on top of the bands. Delicate. Unique. $440. Stack ‘em to create your own magical numerical “code.”)
So–if you’re digging structured jewels, unique materials, and bold colors this season, then run (not walk) into the J.Crew on Fair Oaks and Colorado and check out Lulu Frost’s collection before it’s gone for good.
