To put this into perspective, it was King Louis XV who in 1775 authorized the establishment of a glassworks fabricating plant in the French village of Baccarat situated on the banks of the Meurthe River and named it the “Sainte-Anne glassworks.” From there, the name Baccarat has evolved into a synonym for the best-of-the-best.
What you may not realize is that Baccarat’s fine eye for style and superb craftsmanship appears in a very contemporary
jewelry line for both fashionable men and women. Their sensibility for the overall sculptural form with every execution, from chandelier to champagne flute to personal adornment gives the impression of a superbly well thought out design.
One of the most effective ways to wear Baccarat is with ensembles that are more complex or at least structured than the jewels themselves. It’s in this context that you can appreciate the stunning simplicity of these pieces. Modern Baccarat jewelry and accessories are interpreted in crystal, of course. Recently we spied actress Elizabeth Banks shimmering in Baccarat crystal earrings and rings at ‘The Hunger Games – Catching Fire’ Premiere in Paris. Notice how the pairing of her bejeweled and feathered gown and her intricately detailed clutch is pulled together to perfection by the minimalist lines of her accessories.
Naples stylistas are known for panache in putting themselves together. So we think these jewelry items are just the item to finish a look to perfection. That’s because our society lovelies turn out with an assured elegance that never looks forced. I shouldn’t be surprised to see some of these baubles shimmering their way through our social events this year.
Several fine jewelry stores in our region stock stunning accessories like these sublime Baccarats that perfectly complement your detail-rich attire. Happy hunting!
