Fringe Ben­e­fits

Glam it up with lux­u­ri­ous ar­range­ments of tas­sels set with pre­cious stones

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

as­sels made quite a fash­ion come­back last year, show­ing up on jeans and jack­ets, de­signer bags, preppy loafers and flirty heels. The fringe ob­ses­sion has worked its way into the jew­ellery world as well and with just the same fer­vour, show­ing up fre­quently on the red car­pet.

Of­fer­ing vi­brant in­ter­pre­ta­tions of the tas­sel are Chopard with its Im­pe­ri­ale neck­lace, in which amethyst beads hang loosely from a di­a­mon­den­crusted pen­dant, and Chanel with the Cruise white-gold neck­lace set and laced with aqua­ma­rine beads, di­a­monds and black spinels. Tiffany & Co of­fers a more ac­ces­si­ble and sub­dued tas­sel piece with its Fringe earrings in 18K yel­low gold.

In­spired by Middle East­ern tal­is­mans, David Mor­ris creates earrings with a com­bi­na­tion of emer­alds and di­a­monds, while we see an op­u­lent take on the tas­sel in Cartier’s dra­matic Vi­o­line back neck­lace from the Étour­dis­sant high jew­ellery col­lec­tion, stringed with chal­cedony and amethyst beads, and com­ple­mented by amethysts and bril­liant­cut di­a­monds. Van Cleef & Ar­pels mean­while con­tin­ues its tra­di­tion of trans­formable jew­ellery and se­cret watches with new Pompon long neck­laces that come with de­tach­able watches equipped with a quartz move­ment. Th­ese neck­laces are in­spired by a vin­tage 1970 Pompon sautoir (pic­tured top, cen­tre), which is set with co­ral, amethysts and di­a­monds.
