New In-Store: Lagos Jewelry

by Kiley Schiffman

In 1975, a young teenager named Steven met a Russian jeweler. This chance meeting would make an unexpected impact on this 17-year-old. The jeweler became his mentor, teaching him the classic techniques and to respect the craft of jewelry making. Three short years later, Steven Lagos founded his own company creating his special brand of jewelry. Jewelry that ever since has been known for its craftsmanship.

Since 1977, Steven Lagos estimates that he has created 10,000 pieces of jewelry, and there’s no sign of him slowing down. Each year, another 400 to 500 new designs are created. No matter what he creates, it’s always with the skills of an old-world artist using the highest quality materials, just as his mentor taught him all those years ago.

Lagos Jewelry has certain hallmarks, like his proprietary design technique of textured, caviar-like beading created in 1984. His Signature Caviar, inspired by raw hematite, takes hundreds of steps to create. Each individual piece starts with a hand-drawn sketch by Steven Lagos himself.

In addition to his other dazzling works, Lagos has also created a line called Keep Memory Alive. This collection is made in support of Keep Memory Alive’s mission of funding research and treatment of memory disorders. “It’s about raising awareness and getting involved to help the patients and their families,” says Lagos. Each design is inspired by Keep Memory Alive’s architectural masterpiece by Frank Gehry, and 100% of your purchase will benefit their important work.

This is jewelry created for the woman who possesses a unique blend of confidence and sophistication. She’s the woman who customizes her look and Lagos Jewelry is an integral part of it. It’s done with such effortlessness, she’s able to say: MY LAGOS MY WAY.

While it’s hard to choose just a few, here are some pieces we’ve hand-picked that we’re sure you’ll love:
