Piece of the Week: Bea Bongiasca’s Letter Pendant
The personalized pendants have a back-to-school feel.
The designer’s colorful pieces at an affordable price (thanks to a range of 9-karat gold pieces) are a perfect treat for the shopper who wants to carry color into their fall wardrobe.
There’s no better signature piece than an initial pendant, which Bongiasca has adapted to her signature winding vine motif.
From the designer’s “B-Color” collection, standing for bi-color, each letter is crafted in a multitude of shades. Some letters mix gold with a single enamel color, while others, like this “Piece of the Week” pendant, features a multitude of fun hues.
Childlike and graphic, the letters have a back-to-school vibe that’s appealing even if you’re years into the workforce.
Crafted in 9-karat gold and enamel and retailing for $870, they’re quickly selling out at retailers like Net-a-Porter.
The winners, picked by a group of judges and voted as the public’s favorite, will be announced in a webinar on Oct. 11.
