Pamela Love

When it comes to men’s jewelry, I subscribe to the K.I.S.S. principle: “Keep It Simple, Stupid!” That’s why I was surprised when I saw the decidedly un-minimalist men’s jewelry designed by Pamela Love as worn by the decidedly cool and stylish Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld. And I loved it.

Leave it to Vladimir to carry off a bold pendant necklace without looking like some cheesy Flavor Flav wannabe. How does he do it? Let’s look past the fact that Vlad is young, hot, and linked with a serious babe, stylist extraordinaire, Ms. Giovanna Battaglia. Vlad, with his curator's eye, knows good jewelry when he sees it. Pamela Love’s crow skull pendants, talon cuffs, and bold cross rings are a departure from the minimalist adornment typically considered de rigueur for men, but the strength and masculinity of her designs cannot be denied.

In case you haven’t already heard, Pamela Love is a talented, cutting edge jewelry designer based in New York. You needn't take my word for it: she recently won the prestigious 2011 Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award, an elite distiction given to promising emerging designers. Additionally Love has collaborated with many prestigious names in fashion and her designs have rocked the runways of Yigal Azrouel, Alice & Olivia, Marchesa, and Zac Posen to name a few. Pamela Love’s bold, chunky, organic, and scuptural pieces are coveted by cool girls and boys everywhere. Her signature talon cuffs and serpent rings can’t help but make anyone look a little more edgy.

Oh, and “Love” happens to be her real name. How perfect is that? I love it.

P.S. Vladimir isn't the only Roitfeld with a fondness for Love, she is also a favorite of Julia, her close friend.
