love(notes): repossi

Gaia Repossi, Karl Lagerfeld, and Eugenie Niarchos
It might come as a surprise that I am not a jewelry fanatic. It takes a lot to get my heart pumping. In fact, II share this with you because I only recently stumbled upon Repossi. It is an Italian jewelry company founded in 1920 and is currently the official jeweler to Prince Rainier III of Monaco. The brand has headquarters in Milan, Paris, and Monte Carlo. And I pretty much in love.

Three years ago at the age of 20, Gaia Repossi became the artistic director. To be fair, if my great-grandfather started an international jewelry company, I would become the artistic director as soon as I finished my anthropology studies at the Sorbonne. At least that's what Gaia did. In 2007, she along with childhood friend Eugenie Niarchos (granddaughter of Stavros Niarchos) launched the Czarina collection, signed by Ere by Repossi, with the hope of expanding into a more youthful market. Last October, the duo launched the Nérée by Repossi collection with a fête at the Hôtel Ritz Paris; guests included Karl Lagerfeld, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Mary-Kate Olsen, Shala Monroque, all three Traina sisters, Margherita Missoni, Andrea Casiraghi, Tatiana Santo Domingo, and Loulou de la Falaise. But enough of the history and posse, on to the goods. My definite favorites are the earrings that "hook onto the ear—no piercing necessary—and decorate the whole lobe" and the full finger rings.
