Lauren Kessler is a fourth generation jeweler. In the last decade she has carved a niche for herself in the prosperous family business N. Zaidens Co. (a leader in fine jewelry for nearly a century) with her eponymous line Lauren K. Intensely feminine with graceful details, the pieces are hailed as "modern day heirloom jewelry." From antique cushion-cut rings and diamond pendants to chandelier earrings and hand-hammered gold, the extensive line offers a substantial mix of fashionable designs with timeless appeal. The "bohemian chic" designs feature a rainbow of color with pink tourmalines, aquamarines, yellow beryls, and peridot, among other striking gems. Lauren's latest collections consist of long layered necklaces, rings in brushed yellow gold with gemstones in earthy hues, stacking bangles, and rose-cut sapphire rings. The surprisingly price-conscious line is a profusion of tempting creations, ranging from stylish daywear to exquisite statement pieces.
