FRINGE BENEFITS


It's a Movement
Tassels and fringe that  provides slender winsome movement to a piece of jewelry fascinates the collector. The design element is nothing new for sure. Ancient cultures integrated this charming detail in regal attire and other important dressing.

Design Houses Follow Suit
By the early to mid 20th century designers like Dior, Chanel, Yves St Laurent were also drawn to tassels and fringe for high jewelry. This come-hither jewelry type has never lost its luster--never gone out of style.

Twist on Tassels
Now Gumuchian tempts collectors with their updated tassel necklace with proportions the modern woman adores. Any wonder this motif resonates with this design house? The brand slogan says "designed by women for women." I get it..

The main thing in this high jewelry item is well matched Colombian emeralds on the necklace--no small feat when you've got so many individual stones to work into the entirety. Diamonds and onyx create a nice complement to the emeralds.

Look for tassels to have staying power--actually they never faded over time, did they?
