Jewel of the day: Lele Sadoughi Peking Headdress Necklace

I had the pleasure of meeting designer Lele Sadoughi and briefly discussing her spring designs with her. Foremost among them is this showstopper Peking Headdress Necklace, based on a Chinese headdress. It is made with hand-cut hoplite and marble petals in 14k gold plated settings, accented with nylon tassels, wooden beads and crystals. It is 18 inches long, with an additional 3 inches on the chain extender.

This necklace packs a style punch, but is also light enough in weight and appearance to be a coveted summer style accent. It sells for USD495. Her design background is worth reading about here.
