It's quite fitting that the sun-drenched Des Kohan shop would call Miracle Mile home. Surrounded by the city's best museums, the fashion mecca is a rotating exhibit (curated by Desiree Kohan herself) of the season's most valued wares. And, the latest offering, courtesy of Bare jewelry, is more of the best — so covetable, in fact, that they deserve to be framed for generations to come.
The 14-karat-gold accessories, crafted by L.A.'s own Jeet Kaur Rodriguez Sohal, are handmade, combining traditional metalsmithing techniques with wire-wrapping.The latest laser-cut creations, though a shift from the dainty, wear-anywhere items we're accustomed to seeing, are just as versatile. The earrings double as ear cuffs, and that bracelets can stand alone — or invite a few friends to the (arm) party. But, the holy grail of the collection has to be the collar, which deserves to shine solo on a clean canvas (we're thinking a white T-shirt or perhaps exposed décolletage).
