If you are in London between today and July 3, be sure to check out Masterpiece London. It is an international fine art, antique and design show that will host a number of jewelry booths from the likes of Seigelson, Fred Leighton, Verdura, David Webb and many more. A great opportunity to see some fine work up close.
The proliferation of gold jewelry could not go unnoticed in the Resort 2014 collection presentations that are wrapping up. The vast majority of the designers who opted to accessorize with jewelry went with the yellow tone and the two most noticeable trends within that were big gold chains and black/gold combinations.
Lots of black and gold:
Gold chains abound:
Other uses of gold:
My favorite collection, because it so nicely compliments the whole look without being timid, is Roberto Cavalli:
Unveiled at the Las Vegas Couture Show earlier this month, Kara Ross‘ latest fine jewelry collection is called Petra. It’s a mix of polished and unpolished stones set in 18k gold and accented with diamonds. Lovely.
I have to admit that I’m always a little hesitant when I hear that a social circuit fixture is launching a jewelry line, but I’m glad I looked into Loquet London. Laura Bailey and Scheherazade Goldsmith have introduced a new brand of personalized fine jewelry with the concept of having free-floating charms of your choosing contained in a clear crystal and gold locket. The website, www.loquetlondon.com, is lovely and allows you to chose the shape, size and gold carat of your locket, pick a chain, and then choose from a large selection of charms that mean something to you. There are examples to help get you started… I’m playing around with combos now!
