In her recent quest for stylish finds for fall/ winter, boutique owner Ikram Goldman was having a nature moment. “I was thinking, I would love to find little animals,” she says. “Something alive and sweet that wasn’t a jewelry statement, but a really fun accessory.”
Goldman got her wish when she stumbled across the Paris showroom of Nach Bijoux, whose delicate pieces are a paean to the natural world, adorned with everything from turtles and monkeys to ladybugs and fish. “When I saw them, I stopped dead in my tracks,” enthuses Goldman. “I love the idea that, if you’re wearing a floral dress or a sweater or a shirt, you have this little frog pin placed ever-soslightly off center. It’s three-dimensional. It pops. It’s sweet and it moves, and it just adds another level of fabulousness to a garment. And the wise owl earrings... and of course that snail ring. Who doesn’t want a snail ring on their finger? That’s just the happiest little thing as you’re sitting cocktailing away.”
