The Belora Metal Choker from Fifth & Orient

About a week ago I received the Belora Metal Choker from Fifth & Orient Jewelry Company. The minute I opened the package I knew what kind of look I wanted to go for. Before I explain let me introduce you to Fifth & Orient. 

 The Story Behind Fifth & Orient

Fifth and Orient is a company founded by Christina Burke, Leah Morris, and Phuong Ly. It all began when they were discussing possible ways to feel more empowered as a woman. While conversing, the idea of starting a business came up. Owning a business was something they had never done before. It seemed risky and daunting, but they decided to accept the challenge. In the summer of 2012 Christina, Leah, and Phuong launched their online jewelry and accessory company, Fifth & Orient.

Fifth and Orient’s goal is to provide a diverse assortment of quality products for the fashion forward, confident woman while giving her a refreshing convenient shopping experience. They aim to appeal to women ages 20 all the way to 60. Their pieces range from subtle classics to eclectic and unexpected statements. Each item is functional and beautiful.

Q & A with F & O

HeraNyx: How did the name Fifth & Orient come about?

Fifth&Orient: “The house we lived in was located on the corner of 5th street and Orient Street”

HeraNyx: Tell me one interesting fact about each of you?

Fifth&Orient: “Leah is an avid world traveler and has been to 17 countries so far. Christina is a paleo driven Crossfitter who loves pink and Phuong has three birthdays and she celebrates all three.”


HeraNyx: What is the location of your company?

Fifth&Orient: “Our home base is in Chico, California but our partners travel often and work out of New York and LA as well”

HeraNyx: Is Fifth & Orient a website only company? 

Fifth&Orient: “Yes we are exclusively online.”

HeraNyx: 
How are items selected?  

Fifth&Orient: “Our pieces are strongly influenced by our goal to help make women feel put together and polished while maintaining a sense of pizzazz that we all possess. We select products from around the world…from independent jewelry designers to large companies.
”

HeraNyx: What are some future goals for Fifth and Orient?

Fifth&Orient: “A big goal that will actually be reached shortly is to sell our products internationally. Another goal is to someday provide jobs for people through employment with our company.”

They are a very diverse group of women: a mixture of Chinese, Cuban, Puerto Rican, Filipino, and Portuguese. They are passionate, dedicated, and extremely motivated. Although, Fifth and Orient is just beginning they have some pretty big goals for the future. I support and look forward to their future endeavors.

Outfit Inspired by the Belora Metal Choker

            The Belora Metal Choker is sleek, sultry, and simple. Everything about this necklace screams… H E R A N Y X. I knew that I wanted to wear something strapless and I had to rock my fro. So, with this vision I chose my grey Banana Republic strapless maxi dress. It worked perfectly. It’s a great length and it’s flattering. I could have added bracelets and or a ring, but I wanted to keep my look bare. I love the simplicity of this choker. You can wear it during the day or evening. If you’re not a fan of this rhodium tone, Fifth and Orient also carries this piece Gold

You can call me Hera for short. I would describe myself as a free spirit, eccentric, wild flower; lover of fashion, art, and everything in between. My mind is filled with soooo many ideas…it gets kind of crazy up there. I’m working on perfecting the translation, but sometimes I wish I could just take a snap-shot of my visions instead. I’m all for trial and error though. It makes life thrilling. You know… taking risks, succeeding,trying, and failing, with intentions to be better. All in all I feel good about where I am in life. I’m sure of myself. Like Janelle Monae said, “I feel myself truly becoming the fearless person I have dreamt of being.”

  2. I like Choker Necklace because they are so cool

  3. I like the shape of the Belora Metal Choker. It’s a piece that I would wear with a solid piece of clothing and minimal accessories since the choker itself speaks volume.

    This is my first time hearing about Fifth & Orient.

    I recently bought a coral capri jumpsuit that would go great with the Belora Metal Choker and stud earrings.

  5. That necklace is gorgeous! I have never heard of Fifth & Orient before and I loved hearing about their story!
    What would I wear with it? Shoot, I don’t think I own anything that would go with it… I’m generally so T-shirt and jeans that I’d probably have to go shopping to find something to go with it! haha
