Top-5 cover jewelry 2022

Costume jewelry at the price of real gold, micro-diamonds and maxi-crystals: what jewelry did the most influential stylists choose last year? Here is my personal Top-5!

#5. Melodie earrings by Lanvin on the cover of New York's The Cut magazine

The massive emerald-colored earrings are made of brass and rhinestones, and their online retail price is, get ready - $890. Definitely very beautiful. But personally, for about the same price, I would buy an almost two-meter long Lisa body chain made of 14K gold. I respect the 130-year history of the Lanvin brand, but I respect real gold even more;)

#4. Harmonia Choker by Swarovski on the cover of Who What Wear

Swarovski themselves use the words "floating crystals" in the description of the necklace. The stones do have an innovative secret setting that creates the illusion of nakedness and weightlessness of massive necklace. I applaud the idea and the engineering implementation. And since original technical solutions always entail additional production costs (I know this very well from the pricing of our transforming jewelry), the cost of this costume necklace is also much higher than its less refined counterparts - 800 euros.

#3. Face jewelry by Gucci on the cover of V Magazine

My architect husband has been persuading me to design a face jewelry for Orshata for a year now, but my inner entrepreneur so far prefers more commercially safe models. Although, our cuff-earring from the Verano set can easily be stretched from the nose to the ear. As for the cover jewelry, it is most likely customized specifically for the shoot, as I have not found an exact copy in retail. The most similar chain from Gucci made of brass costs 590 euros.

#2. Alex and Tranahas bangles on the cover of RollingStone

Wide bracelets from the niche Australian brand are made of brass and plated with silver. The narrow one costs $375, the wide one - $625. If you are still surprised by such a price tag for the costume jewelry from craft manufacturers, blame it on technological costs and artificial production, which are not obvious to the buyer (we in Orshata also do not create a large stock, but make almost all jewelry to order). Niche brands cannot afford the price tag of the mass market, because they simply will not survive economically. However, for a higher price, you can usually expect much higher quality and a truly exceptional product.

For me, this cover is also a personal satisfier, because in school I liked to wear bracelets and watches over my clothes, for which I was totally shamed by my classmates (hi guys). But life, as always, puts everything in its place, including trendy bangles ON top of Selena's white bodysuit.

#1. Serpenti Viper Necklace by Bulgari on the cover of Elle Spain

Did you notice how aggressive Bvlgari's marketing was last year? In the hands of stylists, celebrities and influencers, the snake-shaped necklace has become the most viral jewelry of 2022. All jewelry from the Serpenti collection is made of 18K gold and encrusted with diamonds. I did not find the exact price of this necklace on Rita Ora, but some of its configurations reach $135,000.

Bvlgari first used the shape of a snake in 1948, and since then it has been a hallmark of the jewelry house. The form and styling of the Serpenti regularly changes according to the aesthetics of the era. For example, in 2022, the Serpenti collection was released in its "purest" embodiment - mirror-smooth gold without precious stones.

Meanwhile, the signature of Orshata as a brand is just being formed, and in a few weeks we will present you a new form of our jewelry, which we sincerely want to make iconic. I will be happy to provide our jewelry for the covers of the magazines around the world, so dear stylists - you are welcome;) And while waiting - you can shop our regular transforming jewelry collection.
