Lisi Lerch launches her new gem ring line this fall; and more!

Philadelphia Style - - CONTENTS - By Marni Prichard Manko

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
