These Are the New Rising Stars at JCK This Year
Six young fine jewelry brands are making their trade show debuts at the Design Center.
Las Vegas--Last year’s 21 “Rising Stars” featured in JCK’s Design Center have been pared down to a more manageable 11 this year, and six of them are new to the show completely.
Garnish, Hania Kuzbari, JeweLyrie, M. Spalten, Maja Arnold and Nostalzia Jewelry have joined brands like Judi Powers and Spencer Fine Jewelry, both of whom exhibited in the Rising Star section last year and have returned in 2017.
Here’s a little background information on the brands that are new to the show.

Garnish is the aptly named fine jewelry brand inspired by food.
Designer Caitlin Royal of Brooklyn, New York looks to food items similar in scale to her delicate jewelry--namely, herbs--when crafting her pieces.
The result is a delicious, and not-at-all obvious, textural collection. Not to miss are Royal’s rosemary rings, pictured in the above Instagram post.

Amman, Jordan-based designer Hania Kuzbari’s eponymous line is ultra-feminine and detailed, and infused with a Middle Eastern aura.
Kuzbari has an eye for color, which she exhibits through her use of gemstones like green and pink tourmalines. Her charming take on a classic horseshoe design also features several gemstone varieties.

JeweLyrie is a venture from Huan Wang. Wang’s childhood longing to create art brought the Chinese designer to Parsons, The New School for Design in New York to study fashion design. Today, Wang resides in Paterson, New Jersey.
It was during her maternity leave with her second daughter that Wang turned her creative attention to jewelry. Now, she creates a line that is both romantic and timeless.
Her high-quality bridal offerings featuring rose-cut diamonds are particularly strong.

Melissa Spalten of M. Spalten is a gemstone lover who favors precious stones of the unique variety--think bi-color tourmalines and every shade of opal.
Spalten’s affinity for interesting gems lends itself well to one-of-a-kind pieces, of which she has plenty at JCK.
The bold, bohemian line from the Texas native, who currently resides in West Hollywood, California, is a welcome addition to the Rising Star section.

Her “Constellation” collection is especially chic, and her bridal offerings are ideal for the natural bride-to-be.
They include temperature screenings, a “no handshakes, no hugs” policy, and more.
