Splurge Fridays: Of Rare Origin Aviary Collection By Tamu McPherson
Hey There Pretty Birds,
Of Rare Origin jewelry popped onto my radar this Summer while I was shopping at Kirna Zabete in East Hampton. A sucker for big, bold, whimsical statement pieces, I zoomed into these babies before I cleared the thresh hold of the boutique. Yes their beauty is that magnetic. Maybe I am a little biased because the current collection is centered around birds? No, I don’t think so. They remind me of the vintage pieces that my mother-in-law and her chic friends wear, but they are updated with a modern twist, which makes them perfect for me.
Of Rare Origin was created in January 2016 by the extremely charming mother-daughter duo Leslie Tcheyan & Octavia Giovannini-Torelli. Both renaissance women, mother Tcheyan has over 30 years experience in various roles in the jewelry industry, and daughter Giovannini-Torelli held a integral role at a top architecture firm before becoming a consultant so that she could focus on the project with her mother, they honed their skills to perfect their range and launch of Rare Origin’s current Aviary Collection.
The Aviary Collection is utterly precious, sublime and romantic without feeling like it’s been dipped in confectioners sugar. This makes it’s aesthetic perfect for so many different styles: the power suit exec, the bohemian wanderlust, the minimalist with the penchant for a super special accent point and definitely, definitely the mag pie – the rarest bird of them all.
So, if you are looking to treat yourself to something really special this weekend, or you’re starting your Christmas shopping early, I would highly recommend something from Of Rare Origin. These pieces are the ones that you never get tired looking at or wearing. And that’s rarity in today’s fast paced, fashion world!
The styles featured here are my favorites. I’d love to know which ones you prefer. Let me know in the comments please!!!
