The iconic Caviar collection by the LAGOS jewelry brand has been given an update with new color and materials.
The Black Caviar collection of bracelets and chains features sculptural and smooth ceramic “Caviar” beads adorned with 18k gold and brilliant diamonds. The launch of this newest line signifies a reinterpretation of the Philadelphia-based brand’s Caviar design created nearly 40 years ago by Steven Lagos, founder and creative director of LAGOS.
“I like to experiment with texture, scale and colors beyond silver and gold. I love the smooth finish of ceramic and the color choices it offers,” Lagos said. “Ceramic widened the design scope for us in many ways.
Lagos went on to say that it took three years to actually bring the design to a finished product because it required a new fabrication process. While this new process may have been time consuming, it provided opportunities to improve upon other aspects of the product, such as the LAGOS bracelet clasp.
“It is now more curvy and feminine, and an overall better fit for the wrist,” he said.
It’s being sold as a collector’s piece, Lagos said, meant to be paired with 18k gold, diamond and sterling silver Caviar pieces.
“I want her to see the Black Caviar bracelet as the missing statement from her wrist—a ‘uniform’ piece, not a ‘trend’ piece,” he said.
Black Caviar will launch September 1 on LAGOS.com, Neiman Marcus and all retailers that carry LAGOS jewelry. Pieces run from $450 to $6,000.
