I once claimed not to be a “jewelry person” until Landon Slane showed me how a beautiful bauble or two could make me look and feel like a million dollars.
Landon Slane is one-half of Slane, a luxe line of jewelry produced by Landon and her sister Heath. The collection has been featured numerous times in Vogue, worn by celebrities and supermodels, and has recently adorned cast-members in Gossip Girl and Brothers & Sisters.
I’ve known Landon for several years and what is remarkable is that her jewelry exudes such balance and harmony, a reflection, I think, of her personality. She is a hands-on mom to a very active toddler, committed to green initiatives at home and in her company, and passionate about DreamYard, a children’s charity which she has worked with for the past 15 years. Despite her full schedule (I’m not sure when she sleeps!), she always appears to maintain a “zen” quality about her.
That same energy can be found in the Slane designs, which incorporate architecture, nature, and spiritual symbols. Whether you are looking for a chic cuff bracelet to wear while running errands or something sparkly to highlight the décolletage on that little black dress, Slane has the perfect piece for all occasions and price points.
“As a working mother with limited free time it is important to keep things simple. I have a few basic uniforms and interchange the jewelry depending on the occasion and my mood. Right now my favorites are my sterling silver 40″ Twin Link necklace (you can wear it long, or double it) and stackable bangles or turquoise and gold Oval Mesh earrings with gold bangles. I try and wear things that move easily from the office to the playground and sometimes a night out!” – Landon Slane
What I like about this collection is its timelessness. While the designs are contemporary, the elegance, craftsmanship, and quality, make them pieces you will hold on to for a lifetime,…then pass on to future generations.
Slane is an eco-friendly line. A 100% of the sterling silver and 80% of the gold is recycled. Pieces range from $100 to $20,000 and can be found at Neiman Marcus, fine jewelry stores across the United States, and at www.slaneandslane.com.
