Lisi Lerch launches her new gem ring line this fall; and more!
A former Wall Streeter turned Kentucky Derby milliner turned jewelry designer, West Conshohocken’s Lisi Lerch has made her mark on the accessories world for the past 15 years with her big and bold earrings, playful necklaces and even monogrammed seashells. “My inspiration originally came from my grandmother. She didn’t have a jewelry box— she had a jewelry chest,” she laughs. A favorite of Charleston’s most fab ladies on Bravo’s Southern Charm (the Cameran earring is even named after one of the show’s regulars), her oversized earrings make a major statement thanks to Lerch’s combination of delicate metals and brightly colored beads. Although tassel earrings may be having a moment in 2017, these bulky baubles have been her bestseller for five years and counting and now come in over 30 colors. New for fall is the launch of her Real Mccoy Collection gem ring line, the fi rst being a 3- carat aquamarine and pink spinel stunner set in 14k gold. There’s also a move to men’s accessories with a line of ties and critterinspired cuff links. “We’ve been working on the samples for the ties and cuff links for a few years now, but took a while to perfect it,” she says. “My ties are smart and fun. Each one has its own story. Even though business and formalwear for guys is very standard, nothing expresses a man’s character like his tie.” Louella, 1012 W. Lancaster Ave.; lisilerch.com
