Will’s Notebook Opens a New Chapter and It’s Classic

New York—It’s Will’s Notebook, but with a classic truly feel.

In late May, longtime editor Will Kahn and designer Jenna Blake Grosfeld, creator of Jenna Blake Jewelry, announced the launch of a new e-commerce platform, The Vintage Notebook

The challenge was born out of the pair’s shared passion for jewellery from the earlier, and their desire to educate a new technology about jewellery history so that, “the most awesome periods in jewelry structure really don’t develop into shed arts of bygone eras,” reported Grosfeld. 

“There is so much terrific jewellery out there, but the normal shopper does not know in which to start off and does not want to dig,” Kahn mentioned. 

“Jenna and I have hand-chosen and curated parts that we would convey to our buddies to buy.”

The Classic Notebook will take inspiration from Kahn’s well known Instagram @willsnotebook in which he employs an aged medium—pencil and paper—to explain and share an even more mature artwork form—jewelry—in a modern day way.

The web-site went live in late May well with its initial fall, 21 parts of vintage jewellery Blake and Kahn selected and sourced from Blake’s community of antique jewellery sellers worldwide, whom she’s labored with for several years.

Sorted by good deal number, à la an auction property, the pieces on offer you in the initially fall array from $1,200 for a necklace of coral beads with an 18-karat gold and coral clasp, to $28,000 for an 18-karat gold bangle bracelet set with 17 carats of diamonds.

Pics on the internet site present how each and every piece can be styled, and some of the a lot include things like commentary from Grosfeld and Kahn.

Large amount #9 in the 1st choice of parts for sale on The Vintage Notebook is this 18-karat yellow gold and oxidized black gold necklace, which retails for $7,800. “This collar screams boss lady, à la Jackie Collins,” Jenna Blake Grosfeld claims on web-site.

Kahn, for illustration, describes Lot #7, an 18-karat gold lapis lazuli and diamond cuff bracelet, as his “favorite piece in the fall due to the fact it is bold and graphic,” whilst Grosfeld writes that Large amount #1, an 18-karat gold and diamond cocktail ring, “begs for an ice-chilled martini glass.”

New drops are scheduled to choose location every month.

The items Kahn and Grosfeld curate are offered exclusively on The Classic Notebook web-site, though no choose on Will’s Notebook would be comprehensive with out an Instagram part.

The Classic Notebook can be uncovered and followed on Instagram at @the.vintagenotebook, which is supposed to be the key source of traffic to the web page.
