New York Show Spotlight: SNÖ of Sweden

New York, NY – January 9-11, 2011: While perusing the booths of Moda and Accessories the Show, one of New York City’s premier trade shows for fashion apparel and accessories, I serendipitously stumbled upon the lovely Lisette Kingo, president of Kingo Couture, the exclusive distributor of SNÖ of Sweden in North America, an elegant jewelry collection comprised of precious stones, pristine crystals and freshwater pearls.

Debuting in the U.S. for the first time, this Northern European fashion and beauty staple has just conquered the Canadian fashion audience and is ready to take on the States. Lisette’s enthusiasm shines which is a sentiment that eludes some of the other veteran booths at Moda, but most importantly, what truly shines is the must-have necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets that are radiating from SNÖ’s alcove.

SNÖ of Sweden is the brainchild of Lena Jonsson Näslund. She founded the company in 2002 and it has been roaring ever since. The basic concept behind the collection is to design luxurious and timeless jewelry for every type of woman. The good ol’ “affordable luxury” motif, but Lena’s creations exude this idea effortlessly, drawing on inspiration from nature and adhering to the simple idea of keeping her jewelry pure and authentic.

Their 2011 Valentine campaign launched on January 14, and the silver necklace with the heart links and silver oval pendant would make the perfect gift for a mother or a single girlfriend. On the other hand, the silver heart links bracelet would be the ideal romantic gift for you from that special someone. My editor’s pick is the pale pink crystal heart earrings, the optimal gift to treat yourself with on this special day or any other occasion to celebrate you.

Recent accolades for this couture jewelry line include features in both Elle and Glamour magazines. Also impressively, pieces from this sought-after line were worn by Miss Canada 2010 in last year’s Miss Universe Pageant.
