Long celebrated for staying ahead of the trend, Ben-Amun is one of the pioneers of the statement making jewelry movement of the early '80s. We teamed with Ben-Amun to co-design two exclusive pairs of earrings. Originally part of a "Tribal" collection first introduced in 1999, touches of garnet, onyx, and pearl were added to the shoulder-grazing designs in both antique silver and brass. We love the idea of wearing a little history and how the drama of an oversized earring can transform anything from a T-shirt to an LBD.
The Ben-Amun collection has been in pretty much every magazine you can list and has decorated the wardrobes of everyone from Jackie O to Kate Moss to Rihanna. Check out this holiday editorial from 1982 featuring a 17 year old Diane Lane shot by legendary fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier. The jewelry featured here marks the beginning of many collaborations with Calvin Klein.
