Throwaway Chic

I’m not sure who coined the phrase ”Throwaway Chic”.
It’s one I use often as it describes putting together a great, unique look that requires (or seems to require) little effort.

And often a casual budget.

A look that is especially well-suited to these complex times.

Here; nine suggested gifts that epitomize this look and feel.

Ping us for details; you decide, we ship. Easy.


Nicholas Varney 18k and Agate Bracelet
A similar bracelet is on our website which recently sold. The one pictured here, custom made for us by Nicholas Varney is made of eighteen carat gold and banded agate with a unique diamond closure. The perfect blend of haute jewelry technique and materials in a casual bracelet, to wear every day, every way. Signed Nicholas Varney, new.
Verdura Wood and Pearl “Shell” Earrings
Nothing like a wood and gold earring to complete a chic look. We have rarely met a Verdura shell design we did not like and these are especially appealing with their blend of natural neutrals. Wood “shells” accented with eighteen-carat gold and pearl cabochons. From the eighties, just big enough to make s stunning statement. Signed Verdura. 31.82 grams, 1.5 inches long, and 1.5 inches wide. Clip backs but may easily be converted.
Van Cleef and Arpels Tigers Eye Earrings
Van Cleef seventies earrings with a very Now vibe. Textured eighteen carat gold with a tigers eye pendulum, making for movement and a neutral, sexy earring. One and a half inches long, signed Van Cleef, Paris. Clip backs but easily converted.
Nicholas Varney 18k Gold and Ebony Hoop Earrings
Fresh from the bench of the talented Nicholas Varney, these eighteen carat gold and ebony hoop earrings feature diamond touches which elevate the hoops to a chicer- than -chic level. Large and light, casual and elegant we think these hoops fit the bill for the elevated earring repertoire. Signed Nicholas Varney.
Van Cleef Vintage Cadenas Watch with Leather Straps
Super rare and chic Cadenas model watch made by Van Cleef and Arpels in 1972 with leather and burled wood. Created in 1935, the Cadenas model features an angled dial that enables discreet time viewing and a seamless line of bracelet and case. Van Cleef and Arpels did several iterations of this eye-catching design; this combination of materials is exceptional. 42.03 grams, eighteen-carat gold, automatic movement, 41mm X 26mm. Excellent, working condition. Signed and numbered Van Cleef and Arpels, Paris.
Vintage Hermes Chaine D’Ancre Watch
Georges L’Enfant created designs for the hautest of haute jewelry houses; Van Cleef and Hermes among them. This “Tresse” or textured chain design is most sought after and collectible as it is no longer made and is sported on the chic-est of wrists. This watch, from the 1950s and made by Hermes, Paris, is in working order, is 74.47 grams which is easy to wear. Eight textured links measure just over seven inches for a snug and safe fit. Signed Hermes Paris with the L’Enfant stamp and Hermes serial number. Timeless.
Boucheron Scarf/Necklace
Boucheron, the French House on the Place Vendome, experimented with textured gold, and this stunning eighteen-carat gold mesh necklace sparkles as a result. The slightly rose shade of gold sparkles as though it has diamonds, but keeps it low key without. Wear it with a sweater, any neckline works. It may be a scarf, a lariat necklace… Elsa Peretti did a mesh necklace that lacked the length and flourish of this style but has a similar feeling. $6 inches long from tassel to tassel, one inch wide. 120 grams. Signed Boucheron with French hallmarks.
Buccellati Bi-color Leaf Earrings
The trademark Buccellati striated finish on the white and yellow gold strands making up these chic leaf earrings. Just under an inch long, 3/4 inches wide. A classic design with a modern vibe. Signed Buccellati.
Nicholas Varney Dogwood Bracelet
Emulating the trunk of a tree, this chic eighteen 18K gold bracelet made by Nicholas Varney boasts a cork interior which makes for varied texture and great comfort. Signed N. Varney.
