nessa Traina Snow and Morgan Wendelborn are on a mission to help us pare down our wardrobes and build up a collection of quintessential goods with their e-commerce venture, The Line. They’ve built up a site of timeless classics in the fashion, beauty, and home categories, and most recently, they’ve ventured into fine jewelry. For a little help, they turned to Brazilian designer Ana Khouri (whose exquisitely handcrafted 18-karat gold ear cuffs and precious-stone rings are coveted by Rihanna, Kate Winslet, Natalia Vodianova, and more).
“Her name and her collection have always been something we identify with in terms of quality pieces that you keep in your jewelry box and hand down,” Wendelborn tells Style.com. “It seemed like a natural fit to have her interpret our lifestyle.”
The results are a sleek, tightly edited selection of two earrings and a choker necklace (all in 18-karat yellow gold, with prices ranging from $1,125 to $3,975). “I especially love the choker, it’s so delicate and beautiful and still makes a statement,” says Traina Snow. Wendelborn admits she is partial to the hook earrings. “They can be worn multiple ways, as a bar earring or a hook. Versatility is something we are always thinking about and is especially important to us,” she says.
While they haven’t ruled out the possibility of expanding on this Ana Khouri collection, they’re focused on keeping it small for the time being (in sticking to The Line’s motto). However, you can expect to see more designer collaborations from them in the near future.
“We just did a super cool biker jacket collaboration with Schott and people are really loving that,” says Traina Snow. “We are always very interested in working with designers, established and new, and we’re looking to reinterpret older, classic pieces.”
