Noir: Accessories for the Femme Fatal

nOir jewelry designer and owner Leeora Catalan makes pieces that appeal to a slightly different perspective on style. The pieces in the nOir collection are all beautiful, yes, but they make you look closer, and then you realize: these are designs for women who are strong and like a little bit of danger mixed in with beauty. The stack pyramid rings and pyramid bangles are becoming classics, and the newer designs are provoking many oohs and aahs as well. You’ll see nOir designs on the hands and wrists of stars like Gwen Stefani, Mary J. Blige, and Katy Perry.

Many of the newer pieces feature swords and daggers, and they are going over exceptionally well with women who want their accessories to have an aura of strength and confidence. The nOir Amelia Rhodium Wrap Sword Ring is a perfect example. Made of brass plated with rhodium, the design starts with a sword handle at the top and wraps beguilingly around the finger three times. Sure, it’s perfect on a weekend with a tee and distressed jeans, but pair it with a sexy LBD and heels and feel the boost of confidence it gives you knowing that you’re a lot of things, but predictable isn’t one of them.

When everyone else is wearing chandelier earrings, try a pair of nOir Long Mace Ball Spike Earrings in Gold and Silver and show them how it should be done. These start with a gold plated cone pyramid stud, from which dangles a mace ball smothered in 18K gold plated spikes and cubic zirconia stones. They’re simply gorgeous, but with a bit of provocation added into the mix. Depending on your work environment, you could wear these earrings on the day of The Big Meeting as amulets that constantly remind you of how awesome you are and must remain.

NOir jewelry is sexy and edgy, and it lets you give a nod to some of the revived 80s looks we’re seeing lately, only more subtly, and without ruining your hair.
