It’s wonderful to see brands and designers donate any of their sales to charity, but it’s a rare sight to see one donate 100% of the sales. Yet that’s exactly what Harry Winston is doing with the Hope collection bracelet, a delicate white gold pendant accented with a mother-of-pearl dial and a single signature diamond.
Chalk it up to me being in Asia (and a Game of Thrones addict), but I’m suddenly drawn to all things dragon. If I can’t have a real one to turn my enemies to ash, I’ll just have to get my ice and fire from Elise Dray’s articulated full finger ring. Even though the French designer’s collection is only four years old, the fantastical scope is far from small.
I’d like to make a toast – to the champagne-fueled fashion streak designers have been on lately. Yesterday’s Charlotte Olympia x Veuve Clicquot collab had me craving bubbly and cupcakes, and now Stephen Webster (rock royalty’s favorite jeweler) has given us even more reason to celebrate!
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.
I’ve been enamored with mini rings lately, so the mid finger ring trend just feels like the next step. Since the jewels sit higher up on your digits, they’re smaller, giving you the perfect excuse to pile them on one after the other. Elise Dray’s diamond and white gold ring (on Luisa via Roma for […]
…but mostly to wear! June is the unofficial month of weddings. The weather’s gorgeous, the birds are singing – all you need is a ring beautiful enough to match your love! And you don’t necessarily need to spend a million to get it. Sometimes a simple band is enough – the minimalist style will coordinate […]
In 1902, Joseph Asscher invented the now famous Asscher cut, a stepped square style with cropped corners. While this remains one of the jewelry industry’s most beloved designs, his family didn’t stop there – they developed the Royal Asscher cut in 2001, naming it after their thriving diamond empire. The style plays off of the […]
Being petite myself, I love anything Lilliputian-sized. My latest obsession is stacking miniature rings. It used to be in poor taste to wear a ring on each finger, but at these sizes, you can wear dozens on one hand alone. The delicate styles are fun ways to trick out your hands without looking gaudy. Give […]
Not all insects should become jewels. A prime example? The cockroach. I’m not saying there isn’t a gem out there fashioned after one, but if there is, it’s probably not selling very well. Dragonflies, on the other hand, are like pure gold. With beautiful wings and a non-bloodsucking diet, they’re pretty likable little things. London-based […]
