Erickson Beamon has been around for 23 years, but as of late, the jewelry line has been blowing up. If you recall, in Episode 8 of Gossip Girl, Chuck gave Blair a diamond Erickson Beamon necklace for her birthday. Lucky for us, the bling, unlike the show, is not made up.
This is how it all started: friends Vicki Beamon and Karen Erickson moved from Detroit to New York City in the '80s and quickly became quite the socialites. While working with a fashion designer on their catwalk show, they couldn't find someone to lend them jewels to accessorize the collection. Little did they know that having to string crystals and beads on suede would soon become their full-time jobs.
Signature Erickson Beamon beaded necklaces, chandelier earrings, bracelets, and brooches, retailing for $228 up to $2,000, can be found at BlueBee and Net-a-Porter. Shopbop is currently holding an Erickson Beamon sale!
