Lou & Grey, Ann Taylor's free-spirited sister brand, is trying out a collab for the holiday season. The brand partnered up with Erickson Beamon for an eight-piece jewelry collection that hit stores and Lou & Grey's website last week. Consider the collab as a great option for last-minute jewelry gifts: every piece is under $200 and made from higher quality materials like 24k gold-plated vermeil and Czech crystal.
The Lou & Grey x Erickson Beamon line ranges from a cocktail ring to a cuff to statement earrings and delicate necklaces, all in gold and shades of dusty pink and grey. It's almost Rose Quartz in color, very on-trend for 2016.
The collab starts at $68 for that ring to $198 for a bold necklace. That's much more affordable than Erickson Beamon's main line. The brand, which has been worn by the likes of Michelle Obama, Kate Moss, and Lady Gaga, tops out on Net-a-Porter at over $1,000 for punk-y necklaces. This isn't the first collab for Erickson Beamon. The designers launched a Target capsule collection in 2009.
