Continuing on her upward trajectory, 2009 CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Winner Sophie Theallet launches her first jewelry collaboration this week, exclusively at Jeffrey New York. This four-piece 18 karat gold capsule collection was created in collaboration with Noho-based Finn Jewelry's Soraya Silchenstedt and Candice Pool.
The French designer tells Refinery 29 that she was inspired by "folklore and old children's stories that little girls grow up with all around the world—the classic story of the peasant girl that becomes a princess. I wanted to do little charms that were refined, magical, and discreet." The whimsical charm necklaces and bracelets definitely capture the imagination with fantastical shapes like daggers, medallions, bells and pavé encrusted crescent moons and hearts. The collection debuted at Theallet's Fall 2010 runway show and will sell at fairy godmother worthy prices, from $1,200 (for a simple medallion necklace) to $7,500 (for a thick chain charm bracelet with multiple medallions).
