Happy Bastille Day! Our New Favorite Jewelry Line Is Fresh From France

We first became aware of French jewelry designer Annelise Michelson during our search for the perfect ear cuff, but it was her necklaces that really bowled us over.
This bright, young talent's handcrafted collars are seriously special. Incorporating a variety of embroidered leathers on chains, laces, and sparkly beads, these pieces may be a bit pricey but if you're going to splurge on something you'll feel cool about passing on to your grandkids, this will do nicely. Plus, all Michelson's pieces use 100% French materials.
In honor of Bastille Day, we think it's only natural to go ahead and splurge on a new bauble from France's finest new jeweler — whether you have Parisian roots or not.
