How would you describe the type of girl that would wear Hazel and Marie?
Hazel & Marie Pearls are not your grandmothers pearls. Over the last few years working with pearls and some very stylish and loyal clients we have found that creating designs that compliment and dress up already well styled looks is our goal. Our best and most loyal clients are 24-40 year olds who appreciate quality and design. Their styles range from preppy to hipster but each have a classic twist compliment by one to eight strands of pearls. They also tend to be gracious gift givers, giving pearls to their friends and family for special events and holidays.
What is your favorite piece to wear in your collection?
I am always wearing La Riveria, which is 40’’ of our biggest and most luscious round, baroque pearls with a unique matte luster. You can double it up or wear it long– perfect for sunning on a yacht or lunching with the ladies. I am wearing it in the photo with Tori attached!Recently I have also been wearing the Signature Twist in black pearls and the Float Away With Me for its sophistic simplicity.
Whats your number 1 accessory when getting dressed in the morning?
Definitely giant pearl studs from our LUXE Collection, I can’t leave the house without them.
When it comes to fashion how would you describe your style?
My style is sophisticated and breezy pairing formal and casual clothes with a mix of classic and vintage accessories. Since im literally always working (which requires always wearing pearls) I try to tone down my professional look with bright colors, crisp patterns and playful accessories. I have also found that all dresses are great for leading a busy life, office to evening events.
Who is your favorite designer at the moment?
Some designers that I have always loved include Trina Turk, Tibi, Ralph Lauren, Kate Spade, Milly, and Alexis Bittar many of whom have inspired some of our pieces. Some current accessory designers I like include Kara Ross and Alex Soldier local Shanghai based designers.
