It’s a fashion generalization we all know: an accessory can make or break an outfit. The right accessories can jazz up a plain old Hanes wifebeater, and the wrong accessories can kill any carefully constructed outfit. A(r)mor jewelry pieces are the types that can revolutionize an outfit (changing it for the better, of course), and each delicately structured piece of A(r)mor jewelry is made to order. New this year (’09 marks the brand’s launch!), A(r)mor is the effort of designer Sandee Shin, who – luckily for us – turned her jewelry-making habit into a business with A(r)mor.
To label Shin’s pieces as necklaces would be somewhat of an understatement: her designs drape one’s torso, each piece containing its own unique qualities and construction. For instance, the ‘Jade’ features overlapping chains in the front, while the ‘Lupa’ is quite the opposite: a bare front, with a pendant accenting the wearer’s back. Also featured in Shin’s debut collection are the ‘Rei,’ another piece with a detailed back; the ‘Sasha,’ which features a metal fringe detail in the front; and the ‘Toro,’ a simpler design featuring a braid-like detail in the front.
At $200 and under for each piece, A(r)mor jewelry are both statement and investment pieces that come at recession-friendly prices. Trendy and timeless may not be two adjectives often used to describe the same thing, but A(r)mor jewelry exhibits both of these qualities. You can shop online for A(r)mor jewelry at Etsy’s online store, and be sure to bookmark the A(r)mor blog to keep up with A(r)mor sightings and to find out where else you can scoop up the pieces!
