new orleans style

March 3, 2014



The culture, architecture and natural beauty of New Orleans play a key role in the work of jewelry designer Mignon Faget, a fifth-generation New Orleanian. The city is her beloved home. But it is also a place where Faget finds inspiration for her distinctive designs.

Take her newest collection. It was inspired by vintage lace swatches that Faget found in her mother’s cedar chest.

With its lace-like look, Faget created a narrow and wide cuff ($500 to $850) that is available in sterling silver or 18-karat gold. A wide cuff is also offered with diamonds and pearls ($1,200). It is bold, yet feminine.

By mixing metals and materials, Faget offers a variety of wearable art for everyone of any age.

Choose from Louisiana-inspired charms and amulets to oyster shell pendants. For a modern edge, check the honeycomb pattern in hive collection.

In sterling, prices range from $75 to $125 for pendants and $100 to $200 for rings.

Necklaces start at $150 and bracelets at $225. Many designs are also available in 14-karat or 18-karat gold.

In the Atlanta area, find Mignon Faget designs at Bee, 26 E. Andrews Drive (
