Retrospective I was born in St. Petersburg, Florida on August 14, 1957. That year the Cold War was at its peak, Elvis Presley was at the top of the charts and a ’57 Chevy was the new car of choice. At nine years old, my family moved to Philadelphia where I grew up on the Main Line.

At an early age, I had a keen sense of style and was fascinated with fine elements of design and with quality workmanship. Encouraged by my parents, I dreamed of being an artist, of creating something lasting and meaningful. As I began LAGOS thirty years ago, I had those very dreams in mind and since then, have traveled the world and dedicated my life to creating beautiful jewelry.

Jewelry is a very interesting art form. While some believe it is not a necessity, I believe it is a primal need. Since the beginning of time, people from every culture have adorned themselves in one way or another. Jewelry is as much a luxury, as an innate human desire.

I am often asked what makes LAGOS different. There are many appropriate answers, but it boils down to this – LAGOS is true, pure in its integrity and authenticity. This truth is present in the making of each individual piece, designed for beauty, crafted to endure. LAGOS is recognized as “Jeweler’s jewelry”. Old world workmanship and meticulous attention to detail are our highest priorities. Everything we do is about excellence and we continue to strive for perfection in every piece we make.

When I founded LAGOS in 1977, the war in Vietnam was over, Rocky had won the Academy Award for Best Picture, and sadly, Elvis Presley had passed away at the tender age of 42. There was no internet, no email or cell phone, or even overnight mail services. In many ways, business was conducted at a much slower pace. Service was paramount and conducted as a very personal, one-to-one experience.

At LAGOS, we continue to operate in that time-honored manner. Customer service is a key element of who we are. While our systems are state of the art, technology has never been a substitute for personal attention. Whether you choose to visit one of our authorized dealers, our Philadelphia Flagship Store, or contact us directly by telephone or email, you can always expect the best – prompt attention, tailored specifically to your personal needs. You will find our team to be happy, helpful and always courteous. Thoughtfulness is the cornerstone of the LAGOS experience.

Thirty years of distinction would not be possible without our employees. They are consummate professionals, intensely passionate about their craft and it shows in all that they do. We work in a world-class studio in Old City Philadelphia –skilled craftspeople from every part of our industry. Our administrative and support staff are second to none. Our team is empowered and well-informed, and we pride ourselves on being a good citizen of the world and a positive force in American style and design. It is my honor and privilege to work with every one of them. Together we are proud and genuine. Over these many years, I have met thousands of customers. I have had the pleasure to share my work with them. I have heard many wonderful stories, tales of celebrations and special occasions. Allowing us to be a part of your lives is an honor. I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished through the years and will continue to strive for excellence. Thank you for all your kindness and continued support.

Steven Lagos

Company History In 1977, Steven Lagos founded LAGOS with a vision to

create designer jewellery for the modern lifestyle. Today,

LAGOS is one of the premier luxury brands in the United States.

For almost thirty years, LAGOS has created award-winning

collections with a classic signature style. The LAGOS tradition is built on old-world craftsmanship with uncompromising

attention to detail, using only the finest materials in the world.

Authenticity is, has been, and will always be paramount. Each

piece is designed to be versatile, sophisticated, and reflective

of an individual’s personal style.

In 1984, LAGOS introduced the signature Caviar™

Collection. This bold collection of finely crafted sterling silver accented by eighteen-karat gold, semi-precious gemstones, and caviar-like beading marked the beginning of a new

jewellery category, playing a significant role in defining the bridge jewellery movement. Today, Caviar™ is one of the bestselling fine jewellery collections in the country.

Located in historic Old City of Philadelphia, The LAGOS

Studio is dedicated to designing and manufacturing jewellery of the highest quality. Artisans here uphold scrupulous

standards, perfecting every detail and guaranteeing each LAGOS piece for a lifetime.

LAGOS is available at fine retailers including Neiman

Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, and over 100 of the

finest independent jewelers across America. The LAGOS Flagship Store is located on Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square.

Inside the

Studios

Set in Old City Philadelphia, the LAGOS Studio is a state-of-the-art atelier where old-

world craftsmanship and modern innovation combine to create impeccable handcrafted

jewellery. It is here that artisans craft architecturally inspired designs with intricate detail from the initial idea to the final polished piece. This unparalleled attention ensures that

each and every creation is of the absolute highest quality, making it worthy of the LAGOS name.

The artistry behind each design is best captured through the process itself. It begins, of

course, with an idea. Designer Steven Lagos draws upon inspiration both past and present

to develop concepts that are uniquely LAGOS. Once satisfied with his vision, Steven then

shares it with a team of skilled model makers who bring the sketch to life. Using traditional

hand carving techniques and modern Computer Aided Design, three dimensional wax models are created.

Once a wax model is complete, it is transformed into a metal model through the

centuries-old lost-wax casting process, in which the wax model is encased in plaster and

heated until the wax is melted away. Molten metal is poured into the remaining cavity in

the plaster and cooled. The plaster is then washed away to reveal an exact metal copy of the wax. This metal model is carefully detailed by hand. Skilled craftspeople make

certain that each style is crafted to exacting standards to ensure that each piece is both beautiful and comfortable.

These perfected metal models become the master pattern. A rubber mold is made

from that pattern in order to create multiple exact copies in wax. These duplicates are

then taken through the lost-wax casting process to produce many individual metal castings. A piece of LAGOS jewellery can be comprised of numerous different castings, as

well as other elements such as diamonds, gemstones, and pearls, and even subtle working parts like springs and chains. Every piece of LAGOS jewellery originates from these same perfected master models.

114

F A L L

2 0 0 7


These essential pieces are then given to a skilled jeweller whose job it is to take these

individual component parts and, using the wealth of their knowledge and techniques, assemble them to construct the wonderful object that is a piece of LAGOS jewellery.

Once assembled, sterling silver is oxidized to bring out the sculptural qualities of the

jewellery and create the rich luster that is LAGOS’ signature finish. Once a piece has been oxidized, stones are set and the finished piece is given a final polish. A technical

inspection ensures that every piece meets LAGOS’ high standards of excellence. It can

take from twenty five to literally hundreds of individual steps to complete a single LAGOS creation.

At LAGOS, this labouring process is borne from a passion for fine jewellery.

Craftsmanship of this caliber requires years of experience and intense dedication. Each

and every piece we create captures this commitment, and our name guarantees it for a lifetime.

Merchandising Guidelines LAGOS believes in presenting our core

focus products in the most visually appealing way

possible. The following three pages contain images of our Spring 2007 Opening Order. Each

pad presentation depicts one of six categories

upon which the Opening Order is based; Dia-

monds,

Glacier

Gemstones,

Caviar

Items,

Opaques, Pearls, and Caviar Two Tone. All jewellery is presented on the new LAGOS Black

suede fixturing. While these images illustrate an

ideal way to present the Opening Order, they are only suggestions. We encourage you to work with

your Account Executive and Regional Merchan-

diser to tailor the Opening Order presentation to

your store and case-space restrictions. Furthermore, we hope that these images aid in helping you to merchandise each season’s new product as well. Successful merchandising will not only

create a more visually appealing presentation in

your cases, but will also, and most importantly,

promote the sale of LAGOS merchandise in your store.

To the right is a list of current collections that fall under each of the six Opening Order categories.

Caring for Caviar Products

All LAGOS Caviar products are handcrafted from 925 sterling silver and eighteen karat gold. As with all sterling silver, LAGOS silver will tarnish. With this in mind, LAGOS has taken significant steps to keep your jewellery looking new with minimum care. You will notice that all of the recessed areas on your piece are already dark. This is part of an antiquing process in which these recessed areas are oxidized and is a deliberate feature of the design. These darkened areas accentuate the design, giving the piece added dimension. To care for your product simply use the provided polishing cloth. The white inner cloth contains our unique formula of precious metal cleaning agents and applies an anti-tarnish barrier to your jewellery. The outer cloth gently polishes and buffs your piece, resulting in an unsurpassed luster. For optimum results, apply pressure as you gently rub the gold and silver with the white inner cloth. Notice that the tarnish is easily removed onto the cloth. This discoloration is normal and acceptable. Discoloration does not change the effectiveness of the cloth. Next, use the outer cloth to buff the piece to a higher luster. Please note: Do not use the inner white cloth to clean pearls, opal, coral, or other soft gemstones. The outer cloth is acceptable for cleaning all surfaces.

DO’S • Always keep your jewellery in the LAGOS pouch when not being worn. • Wipe your jewellery with the provided polishing cloth frequently.

DON’TS • Don’t wear silver jewellery in the ocean-salt water as it speeds the oxidation process and can cause jewellery to blacken more quickly. (This will not affect the jewellery; only the color.) In the event that blackening occurs, please return the item to your local area retailer for refinishing or email Customer Service at Service @LAGOS.com • Don’t use silver cleaner on LAGOS jewellery as it will remove all of the oxidation and leave the piece looking flat. • Don’t worry if you cannot restore your piece to it’s original lustre. Any piece that cannot be cleaned at home to your satisfaction can be returned to LAGOS for refurbishing and in most cases can be made to look like new again. You simply pay postage and we’ll do the rest.

Gemstone Care

Gemstones can get dirty. Often, soap and hand lotion can cover the gemstone with a film, dulling the luster. Gemstones can be cleaned using a slightly soapy solution (1 part Mr. Clean + 10 parts water). Dip your jewellery into this solution and scrub lightly using a soft toothbrush. Rinse under cool water and repeat as needed. Ultrasonic cleaning is also acceptable. LAGOS jewellery requires minimum care and will provide a lifetime of enjoyment. F A L L
