Yet another fashion jewelry brand is debuting a fine jewelry line, and this time it is Dannijo. A capsule collection of 10k and 14k gold jewelry has been made in collaboration with Rashida Jones, called Fine by Dannijones. Consisting of delicate bracelets, rings, and charms, the collection is quite the departure from the crystal-laden statement pieces that sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder have become known for. Check out a video featuring the pieces here and see the full collection on their website November 18.
It was a scene straight out of a lady’s boudoir at the Dannijo Spring 2014 presentation, held on September 9 during New York Fashion Week. Black, which has been trending in runway jewelry too, was the focus of the collection, and it was mixed with muted tones of green, blue, amber, and white.

Fashion Month has begun with New York Fashion Week kicking it off officially on Thursday. So far it has shown that Vine is probably going to be very popular, but Instagram still rules. A few jewelry designers did presentations on Thursday including Dannijo and Kara Ross, and on the runway Kimberly Ovitz’s 3D printed jewelry debuted.
Dannijo came into their presentation with lots of buzz after a flattering article in the New York Times was published the day before about how they have successfully tied their brand to a desirable (and envious) lifestyle, mainly through effective social media use. The collection presented Thursday was entitled ‘Vanities’ and the designer sisters, Danielle and Jodie Snyder, showed a slightly more muted than usual palette of their signature bib necklaces and ornate designs, which were inspired by Elizabeth Taylor. The glamorous scene was set with models in long jewel-toned evening dresses in the Jane Hotel ballroom, which was covered in velvet and flowers with moody low lighting. Co-hosted by Rashida Jones, it also attracted models Coco Rocha and Hilary Rhonda, as well as fashion blogger Leandra Medine aka Man Repeller.
Kara Ross showed her Fall 2013 collection high above NYC at the Time Warner building, with gorgeous views of Central Park as the background for an exotic collection. Snake skin, horns and ‘ebony’ resin were on display along with the occasional bolt of cobalt. Truly a collection fit for the Year of the Snake.
On the runway, the hottest topic jewelry-wise was of course Kimberly Ovitz and her 3D printed jewelry, which I’ve posted about before. True to her word, within hours of the show on Thursday the pieces were available to buy online through Shapeways. Possibly the quickest runway to consumer transaction ever??
