This turquoise ring is from designer Dana Bronfman’s new “Earth Treasure” collection. Retailing for $2,655, it features a 7-carat Sleeping Beauty turquoise pear-shaped cabochon set in an 18-karat yellow gold “coin” band with diamonds.
New York—Dana Bronfman’s newest collection marks the designer’s most significant foray into colored gemstones, and the result is a delicious maturation of her signature aesthetic.

Bronfman has infused her New York City-produced jewels with stones ranging from lapis lazuli to chrysocolla in what she’s calling the “Earth Treasure” range.

“I was attracted by the uniqueness of specific coloration and patterns,” Bronfman explained. “I hand-selected stones such as chrysoberyl, lapis lazuli and rutilated quartz doublets, emeralds, natural colored diamonds, malachite, turquoise and chrysocolla, which all inspired me to design pieces with dimension and hidden details.”

20180511 DanaBronfman 1Dana Bronfman’s “Chubby Oculus” drop earrings feature 2.8 carats of mismatched yellow-green and green chrysoberyl and diamonds set in 18-karat yellow gold and 18-karat white gold ($5,300).

Those details include Bronfman’s most recognizable signature, her “oculus” design detail, which are holes in her gold settings.

“The oculus symbolically opens the space for what is on the other side, connecting the wearer, the stone, and the surrounding world by letting the natural light shine through, highlighting the natural beauty of the materials and the wearer herself. We aim for our jewelry to reflect the multiple layers of a woman's personality. 

Earth Treasure begins retailing at $1,225, with some one-of-a-kind pieces priced above $20,000.

Rendered in 18-karat yellow gold and accented with VS diamond melee, Bronfman will present Earth Treasure, as well as expansions to her core styles, at the upcoming Couture show, which runs from May 31 to June 4.
