{Mignon Faget}

Mignon Faget is a jewelry designer based in her (and my) native city of New Orleans. Every New Orleans lady, so it is said, owns at least one piece of Mignon Faget jewelry. This adornment is as central to a lady's wardrobe in this city as a piece from Tiffany & Co. in New York.
Starting today, November 1st, MF is offering free shipping on all orders of $100 or more!
I fancy the "New Orleans" charm bracelet above with it's streetcar, red bean, crawfish, alligator, pelican, & Fleur de Lis charms. (The Fleur de Lis is an official symbol of the state of Louisiana. Following Hurricane Katrina it has also been used as a symbol of grassroots support for New Orleans' recovery.)
Below are some of her other popular items, most offered in sterling silver or 14k gold.
Fleur de Lis pendant:

Moonsnail Cuff:

Garden Snail ring:
Moonsnail earrings:



Hot Pepper charm bracelet:



Medium Bow ring:
Fleur de Lis tumblers:
By the way--if you are planning a trip to NOLA in the near future *ahem* be sure to find the boutique nearest you. A trinket from Mignon Faget makes a fabulous souvenir of your trip!

I've never heard of this jewelry designer, but I adore that snail ring. Excuse me...I've got to go shopping now! :-)

LOVE, LOVE LOVE Mignon Faget. I have several pieces and always stop by one of the stores when I am in New Orleans. So beautiful and unique. The jewelry makes great gifts, too...folks love how special they are and different.

My mom bought me a piece of Mignon Faget for my sweet 16! It is so sentimental for me! People always ask me 'who made that' whenever I wear the necklace.

I have the Fleur de Lis tumblers (got them back in Spring). We love them! I got the "New Orleans" charm bracelet as a late B-Day gift (thanks to hubby). I have the small medallion necklace, matching bracelet, and earrings. I also have a heart necklace, bracelet, earrings that they discontinued. And I got the Fleur de Lis Intaglio Heart Charm bracelet for Christmas one year. But I really want the Teardrop Heart necklace with matching earrings and the Oyster Necklace. What do you think about the Gemma collection? P., you found my weakness. I could talk jewelry ALL day 24/7, LOL!

Oh that's funny because I decided for my birthday that I wanted to assemble my own silver charm bracelet, and I started with a New Orleans water meter cover charm. I will continue to add all sorts of odd things that will make it unique to me. Of course a fleur-de-lis will be one of them, and then something to represent each of the kids. Hmmm...

I love charm bracelets and anything with Fluer de Lis!

Another Louisiana girl I'm LOVING right now is Ali Landry and her new line Belle Parish. So girly and feminine. Her daughter always looks so nice. Now all I need is a little girl...

You southerners know how to do it right! :-)

We are simply freaks for charm bracelets, and the New Orleans one you show is wonderful. The other pieces she does also look so fun Miss Petunia, especially the Moonsnail bracelet, that is an outstanding piece.

Love this post!

I LOVE the knot ring. I just got a new catalog the other day from her, and I love flipping through, because it reminds me of home. :)
