Today's WWD Jewelry Article Features Convertible Pamela Froman Necklace!

Today's issue of WWD includes a fabulous article by Marcy Medina, titled "New Jewelry Design Focus: Versatility" which hi-lights innovative jewels that have been designed to be worn in a variety of ways, enhancing their wearability.

Marcy interviewed Pamela for this article and included a bit of the history behind Pamela's "Mommy Earrings", which she designed when her son Hudson was a baby and needed earrings that he couldn't pull on (unlike the Headlight Hoops that are her go-to style.)  "Mommy Earrings" are essentially beautiful studs (either diamond-studded scrolls or bezel-set gemstones) with enhancers that can dress up the earring for a night out with Daddy.  In the article, Pamela explains the evolution of her versatile designs: "From there, I started doing necklaces with reversible, detachable pendants and offering a range of stones that women could collect." 

I've attached images of a few "Mommy Earring" styles and some of Pamela's versatile Leather Cord Necklaces with interchangeable gemstone or all-gold pendants.

If you have a subscription to WWD, you can read the full article here.  If not, I've at least included a screen shot (at the top of this post) with a few highlights.  The necklace shown in the article is Pamela's 18ky "Hera's Crush" Boulder Opal & Paraiba Pendant on a convertible triple-strand necklace of faceted Apatite beads; this necklace has an 18ky and diamond center element with a hidden loop that folds down to hold a pendant/enhancer but can also be worn alone as a simpler style.  I've attached a larger image below, so you can get a better look at this gorgeous necklace.
