Ana Khouriicon takes personal expression to another level…another stratosphere, really! Both Tina and I have fawned over the Brazilian designer’s hand cuffs before (they’re not what you’d think), and with each new piece I discover, I find myself more and more intrigued.
Nikos is creative in his design, but also offers clients the opportunity to be creative in their styling of the piece. He takes inspiration for these ethereal jewels from dreams, turning his dreams into your sparkly, little realities!
The Darya-i-Noor (which translates from Farsi to “Sea of Light”) is the largest pink diamond and one of the largest cut diamonds on the planet. Though the exact weight is unknown, it’s estimated around a massive 182 carats. Another jaw-dropping estimation? The stone is valued at $16.5 billion.
With a Master’s degree in Jewelry Design from Central St. Martins, Brazilian born Fernando Jorge’s pedigree and training are indisputable. His sense of edge is what separates him from the rest of the fine jewelry pack, though. Just one quick look at this Crown ring, and you know the man has vision.
Marissa Collections always has the best selection of unique fine jewelry, which is the kind of fine jewelry I tend to seek out. If you’re going to invest big, doesn’t it just make sense for the piece to be one-of-a-kind? Bochic is a go-to brand for these standout jewels, namely because it was inspired by a standout woman…
Perfection is not only overrated, it’s boring, which is why I gravitate towards unique pieces like Federica Rettore’s double baroque (a.k.a. non-spherical) pearl diamond ring. In fact, unique is not the right word – this is one-of-a-kind. The Italian jeweler uses rare gems like Paraiba tourmaline to create her masterpieces, and I love this deep sea beauty best of all.
