You didn’t need to watch a documentarian throw up French fries to know that supersizing can be a terrible idea.
But Hummers and My Size Barbie aside, sometimes bigger is best. Exhibit A: Fallon Jewelry’s polished brass bangles, sexy pyramid stud earrings, and rings the size of tapas plates.
The chunky, punky pieces were created by NYC’s Dana Lorenz, whose background at Gucci and Donna Karan helped launch her jewelry career. (She got her start providing accessories for Proenza Schouler’s shows.) Fallon’s brass and sterling baubles are a more affordable spin-off of her high-end, head-turning Fenton line.
Incorporating reclaimed ivory and vintage charms, the pieces go equally well with Audrey dresses and tattered weekend shirts. The large bow bangle says you’re feminine but no softie, while braided chains play particularly nicely with a plunging neckline.
Nobody’s saying that you have to replace your well-worn mini charms.
Just that, you know, size matters.
