Oh-so-chic jewelry line Deux Filles creates a thrillingly modern take on a timeless classic.
Rose gold diamond pavé spikes add surprising edge to Deux Filles’ necklace of blush semi-baroque pearls.
When it comes to jewelry, pearls have a certain reputation: classic yet conservative, older, perhaps even a bit stodgy. Pearls from Deux Filles, however, are none of those things—the duo of Sara Harris and L.A. Stein specialize in crafting thoroughly contemporary, cheeky designs with pearls that still manage to play off the timelessness of a pearl. It’s no surprise, then, that the brand has been a favorite of Chicago style queen Ikram Goldman for years.

“Their pieces feel modern and clean,” enthuses Goldman. “You can put on a pair of these earrings and wear them all day, every day and take it from very casual early in the morning all the way into evening. They’re classic but also unusual and fun—like a pearl with an arrow through it, or pearls on metal bars; it makes the pearls come alive in a new and modern way, which is why I love their work.”
XL baroque apricot pearls are accented with a rose gold diamond pavé spider, clasp and scattered diamondset pearl.
Ultimately, explains Goldman, that slightly edgy twist gives pieces by Deux Filles a breathtaking newness that appeals to fashionistas across the spectrum. “They don’t scare away a woman who loves a classic pearl, but they also invite a girl who wouldn’t normally choose pearls to actually wear them in a new way. They’ve nailed it.” 15 E. Huron St., ikram.com
