If you thought pieces from coveted designer label Michael Kors were too expensive for your collection, think again. The brand has just announced the arrival of their first ever demi-fine jewellery line, and it’s much more affordable than you might expect.
The new Michael Kors Sterling Silver jewellery collection is crafted from sterling silver, semi-precious stones, sparkling accents and luxe plating in 14-karat gold, rose gold and rhodium, allowing fans of the brand to shop the quality and style that the Michael Kors name is known for an accessible price point. In fact, the pieces start from just £49 for a charm (the most expensive piece in the collection is £489).
‘Rich in detail and designed with a timeless sensibility, the collection offers seasonless, feminine necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings that can be worn separately or stacked together for versatile everyday wear,’ the brand said in a release.
Inspiration for the jewellery was drawn from the Mercer Lock, an iconic brand element inspired by Mercer Street in New York City’s renowned Soho neighborhood, where Michael Kors opened his first downtown store.
As always, the letter M is crucial too, with custom faceting incorporating the shape into the pieces. ‘I’ve been sketching different takes on the letter M since I was a kid,’ said Michael himself. ‘There’s something architectural about the shape of the letter that translates into a strong, glamorous graphic element.’
There are three distinct stories to shop in sterling silver: Mercer Link, a reimagining of the signature Kors padlock charm; Kors Colour, a customisable selection of gemstone styles, and Custom Kors – charms and nesting bracelets and rings with interchangeable elements that you can personalise to suit your style.
However, items from each section can easily be worn together – the entire jewellery set is seasonless, stackable and utterly wearable, whether you’re looking for one stand-out piece or a group to layer up.
The Michael Kors demi-fine jewellery collection will arrive at Beaverbrooks on 20 August.
