Jewelry from the Runway: Ben-Amun

This fashion season, I was all about reporting on not necessarily the most covered shows (although I did choose a few of those as well) and was actually surprised that a few reps from jewelry designers contacted me about the shows that they were included in. I did coverage on Corey Lynn Calter, and soon learned that Ben-Amun provided all the jewelry for those looks that I loved so much. I feel bad that I hadn’t even tried to do the research, because this jewelry is pretty fantastic.

Thick Gold Bangle, Gold Hinge Cuff, Portofino Gold Ivory Bead Earrings, Molten Gold and Black Earrings, Hammered Gold Necklace


Some pieces that I found (besides the ones in Corey’s collection) had me even more smitten as a kitten. Their original and funky looks would really fit in with my eclectic wardrobe, especially the following dreamy dreamalicious items that I will pining for until I hint (harrass) to the man that I need to be given a gift. I am especially in love with the necklaces. Statement piece is an understatement for the majority of Ben-Amun’s designs.

Neon Fan Necklace
Byzantine Multi Color Collar Necklace
Portofino Golf Horn Pendant
Orange Half Moon Necklace



So what do you think? Had you ever heard of Ben-Amun designs? If not, will you be jumping on the train with me?

You can find Ben-Amun designs on their site, blog, and Twitter.

Jewelry from the Runway: Ben-Amun

Corey Lynn Calter Fall 2012

Today was the first day of Merceded Benz  Fashion Week Fall 2012 and down at Pier 59, the collection that stood out most to this blogger, was under way. I am talking about the goods from designer Corey Lynn Calter. Her presentation was like “BOOM, here I am!” not just in vibrant colors but in the interesting prints and, subsequently, the pairing of the two. What I really, really loved most? Was that if worn with confidence, any regular gal could pull off these looks. These really are ready to wear.

Ben-Amun provided the strong gold accents for Corey Lynn Calter looks in statement necklaces, bangles and earrings.  Chunky Italian resin bangles gave a young at heart feel to color blocked and whimsical patterned dresses while links and hammered gold tribal necklaces lay perfectly against silk button downs and trouser shorts paired with brightly hued tights. 

Add a little, tiny bit nerdy, with a dash of edge and a touch of vintage flare and you have one righteous collection. My favorite pieces, as in I would want to call them my very own? The tangerine trousers, ANY of the clutches and the red orange caplet with gold buttons. Ugh, so dreamy. Corey’s pieces have been sold in stores such as Barney’s, Macys and Nordstrom as well as a fan favorite, Anthropologie… so I will most definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for a piece or *two to come into my life within the next year.
