If the first rule of statement necklaces is go bold or go home, you won’t see Charlotte Hosten packing it in anytime soon. The Montréal-by-way-of-Belgium jewelry designer doesn’t shy away from drama, especially when it hovers just below the neckline. So ornate are her baubles, in fact, that regular clasps will not anchor them. Hosten has to mount her vintage beads and repurposed findings on ribbons of silk, a practical move that only adds to their evocative charm.

A FINE ROMANCE

Hosten specializes in bridal and haute couture, but she also traffics in custom pieces, made from heirloom trinkets that are too riddled with history and sentiment to part with. But even her limited ready-to-wear line offers unexpected flights of fancy, from dusted-off antique brooches to ruffled collars stitched from reclaimed men’s shirts.
