Snake Hand Piece From Colette

Colette Steckel has a way of creating a fashion-forward woman’s dream jewelry, every season. This summer she presented a group of stunning hand pieces made of interconnected diamond and gemstone rings that sit perfectly on the hand. Her diamond snake piece won her a Couture Award for the best diamond piece of the show, and I couldn’t agree with the judges more!

We can always count on Sutra to showcase the most brilliant gemstones on the planet in their ultra glamorous designs, and so it’s no wonder that they chose to use Paraiba tourmalines for their most spectacular earrings this season. The Brazilian gemstones are among the rarest in the world and seem to glow from within.

We always swoon over the new additions to Wendy Yue’s menagerie each season, and this spring there was a lot to swoon over!  A dual swan ring, forest fairy earrings and a set of opal lizards were some of my favorites, though it is hard to pick!

Nam Cho’s Brilliant Diamond Baguette Earrings

Nam Cho’s signature is classically beautiful fine jewelry with a cool-girl edge, and these amazing geometric platinum and diamond baguette earrings absolutely fit the bill.

Shark Tooth Ring from Borgioni

Borgioni’s jewels are obsession worthy, and this season’s collection was no different. They presented a diamond-accented shark tooth ring that sits over the knuckles and a technicolor precious gemstone double ring that graces the whole hand.

We are also so proud to be the home of four designers honored with Couture Awards this year: Colette Steckel’s snake hand piece won top honors in the Diamonds category, and Nam Cho, Moritz Glik and Mizuki also won recognition for their incredible work. And I was so excited to have been asked present the People’s Choice Award!
