Valentine’s Day: Say I Love You With Sabido & Basteris Luxury Jewelry

I am so happy to welcome the breathtakingly gorgeous and luxury jewelry brand, Sabido & Basteris, back to New York. I first fell in love with Sabido & Basteris three years ago while attending their launch party – Sabido & Basteris Launch Party at Norwood and my love for the luxury jewelry brand hasn’t wavered one bit. The exquisite pieces from Sabido & Basteris make up a new category of world jewelry that applies the latest technology to convert fine silver 99.9% pure into an array of boldly colored silver threads. Called the Argento SB collection, these gorgeous colored silver threads form rainbows when woven or braided. The ultra soft, precious metal fabric is combined with extraordinary designs which result in exquisite pieces of jewelry for the discriminating connoisseur.

Luxury Jewelry Brand, Sabido & Basteris at NYIGF

I was very excited to see the gorgeous jewelry from the renowned Italian-Mexican designer, Sabido & Basteris at NYIGF (New York International Gift Fair).

I was already familiar with the collection by covering their launch event at Norwood but this time I had the pleasure of not only meeting Victor Sabido but also got a first-hand introduction to his Sabido & Basteris Luxury jewelry collection.

Victor personally walked me through his new pieces which I immediately fell head over heels for. To refresh your memory, Sabido & Basteris uses cutting edge technology to dye silver using natural materials to create colorful ribbons of silver thread. Inspired by the beauty of the Mayan Temples, the ribbons are woven into the gorgeous pieces you see here

My absolute favorite pieces (the earrings, the ring which I had to try on and the necklace) are featured below, yes those beautiful pieces you see below are dyed woven silver thread; it is actually quite light and pliable to the touch; the pieces also have movement, they are not stiff at all. Every one of the Sabido & Basteris’s jewelry pieces are stand outs. One piece (any one piece) would be the perfect accessory to make your look come alive.

Now, I cannot write about Sabido & Basteris without mentioning his luxe and grown-up friendship bracelets (which we had the pleasure of receiving at the Norwood launch). Aren’t they incredibly cute? I love the bright new colors and want one ( it’s a great look when you double and triple wear them).

As stated above, I got a chance to learn about and see the collection from Mr. Sabido Basteris himself – check out the video below

Sabido and Basteris Luxury jewelry Launch Party At Norwood

A very good friend invited me to the launch event of a Jewelry line that was launching in the US for the first time. Naturally, I attended and dragged Kim along with me. The Sabido and Basteris luxury jewelry collection is absolutely breathtaking; the words gorgeous, enchanting, amazing does not do it justice (I only took one photo because they were made available to us). The event was held gallery style at the exclusive Norwood Club lent even more to the regal beauty of the jewelry, they truly are pieces of art.

As we walked around enjoying taking in the beauty of the pieces, enjoying champagne and the tasty hors d’oeuvres, we were told of the concept of the collection. Inspired by the Mayan Temples, designer, and creator, Victor Sabido Basteris rediscovered the art of using natural materials to create color. “Sabido & Basteris combines fine jewelry design with cutting edge technology to dye silver using natural materials to create ribbons of rainbows. The line is distinguished by brilliant colors and silver thread that is weft in a completely unique way.”. The eco-friendly and sustainable line not only featured silver but also a mix of materials such as gold, leather, precious stones (as well as stones indigenous to various countries), wood and crystal creating the beauty that you see above. I expect to see the Sabido and Basteris pieces very soon on the red carpet.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to meet the designer as we had another event to attend (always another event) but on our way out we were gifted with a beautiful friendship bracelet like the ones featured below:

There was one piece that made me speechless but alas I didn’t take a photo and thankfully a quick search brought it up. I won’t call it a necklace, it is just a gorgeous piece of artwork
