Editor’s picks, JA edition
Jewelers of America held its annual press preview in their downtown office yesterday, which also happens to be the same office where National Jeweler is located (JA acquired the publication earlier this year), making for an easy commute to see some great jewels.
Designers and brands showcased in the preview included new designer Doryn Wallach, Gumuchian, Rona Fisher and pieces from Jewelry Television.
Below are my favorite pieces from the event.
Doryn Wallach’s 18-karat yellow matte gold “Gladiator” rings, with bezel-set white diamonds ($11,175) and bezel-set black diamonds ($4,600).
Gumuchian’s “Pistachio Ice Cream Cone” ring, made in 18-karat yellow gold with a 19.74-carat chrysoprase and 93 tsavorites ($4,800), and the “Strawberry Ice Cream Cone” ring, made in 18-karat rose gold with a 26.42-carat rhodochrosite and 94 round pink sapphires ($4,400).
Jacqueline Fine Jewelry’s platinum ring features a 5.60-carat yellow sapphire, blue sapphires and diamonds ($45,000).
Jewelry Television’s seraphenite and multi-gem necklace set in sterling silver ($2,000 with matching earrings)
Rona Fisher’s “Wild River” cuff, made in oxidized sterling silver and 18-karat yellow gold ($2,295)
The winners, picked by a group of judges and voted as the public’s favorite, will be announced in a webinar on Oct. 11.
The engravable piece is a perfect family heirloom.
