As a lifelong New Yorker with an entrepreneurial flair and a pretty-yet-tough aesthetic, Pamela Love is our kind of woman. We've long been fans of her distinctly chunky jewelry, which is inspired as much by folklore and the American Southwest as it is by gritty Manhattan.
Topping out at about $1,600, most of Love's pieces are investments, which makes us extra-excited about her new collection for Topshop--the London-chic retailer's first-ever American collaboration--which brings the fashion-forward look to a slightly lower price-point.
Our favorite item, hands-down, is this gold, Aztec necklace ($180)--zoom in to see the cool integration of Mexican-inspired engravings and bold, punk-like studs. But we're honestly smitten with the full collection: The medicine-wheel earrings ($100) are a great and grown-up way to embrace Spring's feather trend, while the Hearts and Arrows silver cuff ($240) is like a baroque heirloom gone rock and roll.
These pieces just hit the Soho store (and website), and are likely to sell out quickly. But if you're still hankering for one of Love's original, solo pieces, you'll want to check out her new Spring/Summer collection. The Tribal Spike necklace ($875) pretty much defines the term "statement jewelry."
