French Kande has quickly become my favorite jewelry because of the modern, bold statement it makes. I wear them every day and never fail to get asked about them. They’re striking and can easily transform a simple T-shirt and jeans into a polished look.
Each piece of French Kande jewelry is handmade in their Los Angeles studio by Califonia artisans. They are outstanding on their own and magnificent layered.
The first necklace I bought was this 29 ” sandblasted Black Jasper necklace with a Cuvee Royal Medallion. The Fleur De Lis bezel has jet cabochons which compliment the black jasper.
It was love at first wear. This necklace went with everything in my wardrobe. The length was perfect over so many things I found myself wearing it all the time.
Since the black necklace was such a terrific hit, I figured a white piece would be just as versatile so several months later I treated myself to this Triple Strand White Turquoise bracelet with the Ministry medallion.
I’d been unfamiliar with turquoise in a color other than the traditional turquoise and loved this white one so much I decided to add this Triple Strand Sea Mist Jade bracelet with Un Demi Medallion.
The next piece I bought is perhaps my favorite because I wear it more than any other. It is this 17″ Double Strand Labradorite with Black Canard medallion necklace.
The Labradorite is a color in my eyes so flatters everything I wear and the black medallion is stunning. It fits perfectly into the neckline of blouses and jackets so is easy to wear all the time…which I do.
I wanted to experiment with layering these necklaces so my next one was this 34″ Sandblasted Indigo Jasper with a Centennial Heart Stack medallion.
This Bee was a hugely popular icon during the court of Napolean. He ensured that the Bee was widely adopted in his court on clothing, draperies, carpets and furniture all across France. He also had over 300 golden jewels styled in the image of a Bee affixed to his coronation robe.
French Kande is designed by Kande Hall, who happened upon some crusty French medallions while wandering the back streets of Paris in 2009. She was captivated by these stylish little medallions and has turned them into a truly inspiring collection for all of us.
