Not everyone can pull off pearls like Jackie O. In fact, in my opinion,
 they have become and old and out-of-touch accessory. Think Barbara 
+ Laura Bush! They had brief stints in mainstream fashion thanks to
Madonna (Like a Virgin) and Carrie Bradshaw (the Sex and the City movie).

But it's about time our generation take back the classic riviere, 
OUR WAY! Enter Tomoko Igarashi.

The Tokyo-raised, New York transplant has designed a series of 
limited-edition statement pieces that are not your grandmother's 
pearls. Using a variety of materials, she achieves the look of the 
legendary bauble in a fun and fearlessly modern way. 

She revives the chain-link trend with 
unexpected color, knots and multi-layering.

When it comes to jewels, I say go BOLD or go home
I think Igarashi would agree.
