We are so excited about Wendy Brigode’s return, and the celebration of one of the most well known sell-out phenomenas in the jewelry business. The Tin Cup Necklace, as seen on Renee Russo in the 1996 movie “Tin Cup” is back in Fragments Showroom, but this time with an oxidized pave diamond ball. A bit of edge on an essential classic, this is a piece for women of all ages. An heirloom to be passed down – something for the your mother, daughter and her daughter one day. Seriously chic.

xoxo, Janet
