Bibi van der Velden Spring 2014

Bibi van der Velden Spring 2014: Wearable Works of Art

When you think of statement jewelry, some of the first things that come to mind are large pieces, bright color combos, and unusual shapes. Bibi van der Velden knows that it’s what jewels are made of that sends the true statement, though. The NYC born, London and Netherlands bred designer crafts her pieces with rare materials like Chinese jade, Italian coral, and oh yeah – 40,000-year-old Mammoth tooth dug up from the Siberian tundra!

…even when you’re not! That’s right – I’m not going to let the fact that I’m already married stop me from commandeering these looks. I’ve been excited about the jewels since I saw them at Jenny Packham’s runway show. I love that the Swarovskis are set like diamonds – it elevates the look without elevating the price…

Eva Fehren X Collection: X Marks the Sparkle

NYC artist Eva Zuckerman (Fehren is her middle name) makes fine jewelry, but she doesn’t rely on the high-quality gems and metals to impress you (although those are pretty breathtaking!). These pieces are all about delicate, yet impactful design. After earning a degree in fine art from Cooper Union and working with Snob favorite Monique Péan, Eva started her own line in 2011 and quickly won rave reviews with the X Collection.
