Bolo necklaces were all the rage not that long ago (supplanted by the resurgence of the choker, now also on its way out). But there is something classic about the bolo, and this one by Mizuki adds the charm of a baroque pearl.
Mizuki Nagasawa was born in Tokyo, raised in New York, and trained in sculpture at the School for Visual Arts. The Mizuki collection, introduced in 1996, features jewelry with sleek movement and powerful shapes that reflect her fine arts background and Japanese heritage along with the cool of New York’s SoHo.
On a 30-inch leather thong, the ends are tipped in 14k yellow gold; the pearl acts as the slider to make it tighter or looser.
This sells for USD$3,995 from Neiman Marcus.
