French girl style, no matter how much you try to deny it, is universally loved for a reason. It’s only a matter of time before VSCO girls and their Brandy Melville tube tops and vaporwave color scheme will mature into Breton shirts, perfectly tailored denim, and haughty red lips worn at 7AM. Sure, you can fault the effortlessly stylish Parisienne woman for your lifelong struggle with whether or not you should get bangs, but it’s chic and you know it. So it’s fitting that bijoux brand Mejuri tapped into our Francophile obsession with their latest collection inspired by a French icon.
No, not it’s not Brigitte Bardot or even an influencer who founded an Instagram clothing label. This twelve-piece drop takes inspiration from that most irresistible of French delicacies—the croissant. Dubbed the Croissant Dôme Collection, it includes white and yellow gold rings, bracelets, and earrings that take the shape of your favorite flaky pastry.
Beyond making you think of butter, this collection is a subtle throwback to mom jewelry from the ’80s. The chunky silhouettes are a step above the delicate styles we’ve been obsessed with lately, but each piece can be seamlessly woven into your daily accessories game (Le Pain Quotidien, but make it fashion). I’m particularly excited by the clanking bracelet stacks and, best of all, pinky rings that make you feel like a patronne (‘boss’ in French, duh).
“You’ve heard so much about French style, but in the end it’s really just an attitude about being authentic with yourself,” stated creative director Justine Lançon in Mejuri’s press release. Being authentic is key to Mejuri’s mission. The New York-based brand operates on a transparent, direct-to-consumer model, so you can always expect their products to be affordable, yet super high quality. Starting at $65, their gilded croissants are available in both gold vermeil and solid 14k, depending on your appetite for fine jewelry. Curb you carbs with crescent-shaped baubles that look good enough to eat today. (Editor’s note: do not eat Mejuri’s jewelry).
