Known for gorgeous hair accessories, this industry veteran, who started in and is still based in Soho, boasts a long line of celebrity fans but that’s no surprise since she’s been around since 1987 and has designed for Michael Kors and Derek Lam. Every piece is a statement; whether its the thorn headstrap, rosebud necklace or bib necklace, the beauty and craftsmanship of her artful pieces are simply beguiling.
One of my favorite stones is Lapis and the Roman Luxe collection features some amazing pieces created with this captivating gemstone. This collection, although launched this year, has been a part of the Roman Company which started in 1973. Roman Luxe is a younger, more modern brand, inspired by the runway and enhanced by technology.
Known for making the most stunning metal mesh jewelry, like the above Anniversary Gold Collar Necklace, and with 136 years of heritage, there’s no mistaking Whiting & Davis’s exquisite lineage. The brand’s mesh has been featured on the runway of some of today’s hottest in designs by Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, and Louis Vuitton . With a return to its roots and a renewed focus on timeless and luxurious fine jewelry in sterling silver, 18-karat gold, rose gold (my favorite metal) and both semiprecious and precious stones, Whiting & Davis will be gracing the arms, necks and fingers of several of today’s modern women.
Rugged and unique in every way, the Emanuela Duca jewelry collection’s highly textured surfaces are evocative of volcanic ash and the ancient ruins but still features movement. Though her pieces look primitive, her designs are always clean, simple and minimal. She allows the texture and sculptural shapes of her pieces to show their sophistication and intriguing personality.
