Irene Neuwirth

Best Statement Necklaces, August 2015

Unlike many fine-jewelry boutiques, there’s nothing stuffy or intimidating about Irene Neuwirth on Melrose Place. You might even spot the designer cooking up something in the open kitchen for her staff and customers. The same free spirit is present in her necklaces—often made of large pieces of turquoise, labradorite, or tanzanite—that are glamorous and organic at the same time. They add a bohemian touch to a gown or sophistication to a blazer, T-shirt, and blue jeans.
