New Orleans inspires gender-neutral jewelry line

Nola’s famed jewelry house Mignon Faget has come out with a collection for folks of all genders, ages, and expressions.

In New Orleans, there is a place where everyone gathers, regardless of race, economic status, age, style or opinions. Anywhere else it would be called a median, but in New Orleans, this real estate between roadways is an anything-but-ordinary location to celebrate Mardi Gras parades, gather with neighbors, dance in Second Lines and share food, drink, laughter and tears with both strangers and friends. It is this culturally important piece of real estate that inspired the newest collection by iconic jewelry house Mignon Faget – Neutral Ground.

“We designed this collection to be truly universal and celebrate the beauty that comes from our differences. The collection eschews traditional ideas about jewelry and shows that there truly are no boundaries to expression. It breaks down barriers for the wearer and gives them freedom and permission to express all parts of themselves,” said Maghan Oroszi, Chief Operating and Creative Officer.

Designed to create unique looks that transcend style and outdated gender norms, pieces in the collection are not labeled as men’s or women’s. Sturdy chains pair effortlessly with delicate pearls and soft tones. Warm and cool palettes, mixed metals, and styles combine to make Neutral Ground a collection simply for jewelry lovers, shifting seamlessly from everyday to special occasion while elevating and complementing the unique individual style of the wearer.

The brand’s fall catalog captures the spirit of the collection, with photos shot locally and featuring an all-night diner with an eclectic cast of patrons. Over coffee, milkshakes and French fries, the strangers trade stories and become friends.

In addition to the launch of the Neutral Ground line, Mignon Faget announced the return of Pylon and Ironworks Collections. Pylon has been updated with mixed metal pieces and pearl accents. Ironworks, inspired by the ornamental architectural detail abundant in New Orleans wrought iron, debuts new pieces sure to excite dedicated collectors of the line.
