When we think about our most recent jewelry purchases from J.Crew, visions of statement necklaces start dancing in our heads. Brightly colored and bejeweled, the preppy-chic brand’s usual rotating roster of arm and ear candy are the bold pieces we wear whenever we want to make our outfits pop. But the brand’s latest jewelry line — a collaboration with the Brooklyn-based boutique Catbird — sees J.Crew tapping into the minimalist aesthetic with ultra-refined pieces that have everlasting appeal.
The J.Crew x Catbird collection includes 10 yellow-gold pieces of dainty designs that were largely only previously available at Catbird’s Williamsburg outpost or through its website. But now thanks to the mega-brand onboarding a handful of the boutique’s signature wares, you don’t have to be a Brooklyn babe to don these timeless trinkets. From teeny stud earrings to the paper-thin stacking rings that helped bolster Catbird to cult status, the 14k gold curios retail from $44 for a simple stacking ring to $360 for a draping lariat. Though we’ve got our eyes on the J.Crew exclusive Lovecat Ring ($242) that we imagine we’ll be wearing day in and day out till we’re old and gray (and still extremely stylish).
