I first discovered French Kande jewelry a little over 7 years ago, and immediately fell in love with vintage-French-meets-modern-casual vibe. Over the years I’ve collected quite a few pieces, and wear them often.
Kande began creating jewelry after discovering a box of vintage medallions at the marché aux puces several years ago in Paris. These medallions dating from the mid-20th century were tokens that businesses created to give to their best customers, and often included references to French culture and history.
They’ve just dropped a new collection, Palais Royale Holiday, and wow, c’est magnifique! The collection includes some gorgeous new materials and designs. These pieces can add a little holiday sparkle but aren’t too OTT to wear everyday. I already have few items in my shopping cart… 😉
As shown above, here’s a sample of some of the new pieces from this collection…
Paris-inspired jewelry, made in Los Angeles
1 – One of the new stones in this collection is Raspberry Quartz. This is a longer necklace, which can be worn alone or layered with shorter necklaces. I love the mix of chain and stones, which keeps it lightweight. The “Monaco” medallion features profiles of Princess Grace and Prince Ranier.
2 – These fleur-de-lis post earrings with a faceted Raspberry Quartz dangle will coordinate nicely with the necklace or your other French Kande pieces. They’re smaller and lightweight, but still make a statement.
4 – If you’re contemplating your first French Kande purchase, I usually recommend a mid-length stone necklace with a classic medallion. It will look great worn alone, and can be layered with shorter and longer pieces. This “Melange Mix” necklace features multi-colored stones which give you lots of options to coordinate. And with this style you can select a different medallion to create a truly custom piece.
6 – If you prefer silver-toned jewelry, here’s another option in the fleur-de-lis post earrings. These have a black onyx dangle.
8 – Pearl girls…this one’s for you! It’s such a great throw-on-and-go layered style. Those are real freshwater pearls. I love the new “filigree” pendant, too.
9 – Here’s that Filigree pendant again, this time hanging as a charm from a single strand pearl bracelet. (This one’s on my short list!)
10 – The stones in this Garnet Mix necklace really catch the light! The Aime medallion is one of my favorites, but you have the option to choose a different medallion if you prefer. This would be another great “starter piece!”
