Gemstone Spotlight: Eden Presley
Gwen Myers says that she started her line, Eden Presley, one piece at a time.
Named after her two daughters, Eden and Presley, she first made a bracelet with her daughter’s name on it. Once she saw that all her friends wanted a similar piece, Myers decided to create her own line.
Using bright, fresh hues in her pieces, Myers says the colors she grew up with in Florida inspire her. Her bold designs combine classic, traditional motifs with modern and unusual elements, creating pieces that can be “worn in any situation,” from the everyday to black-tie events.
Each of her one-of-a-kind pieces is individually hand-set in 14-karat gold or sterling silver.

Gold Spotlight: Doryn Wallach
Doryn Wallach spent nearly two decades as an interior designer before she turned her focus to jewelry.
“My main goal as an interior designer was to create unique and beautiful spaces that could last a lifetime, and I’ve held onto that goal as I’ve started making jewelry,” she said. “Designing interior spaces gave me the chance to test out my aesthetic in a large, interactive way. Now I can take that design sense and bring it down to the personal space and use form and function to define a woman’s own style.”
