My humble opinion about fine jewelry is that it should be worn. It should reflect your style and make you smile and flow in the many worlds you frequent. And not to sound too woo-woo, but semi-precious and precious stones aren’t just baubles, they’re earth candy, gifts from Gaia…they have energy! It takes more than a billion years for a diamond to take form. Then it has to be discovered, unearthed, transformed into a sparkly gem and then finally landing on your finger. It’s special, you’re special, so don’t tuck it away in a dark box. Wear it, feel it, love it.

Now I don’t know any of these designers, but I sense that they, too, believe in wearable luxury. More importantly, they understand that fine jewelry design can easily include bold color or cultural references beyond the mainstream. It can be whimsical, eccentric, modern or sexy and still qualify as heirloom-worthy. This talented bunch reminded me that earthly treasures are even more divine when meshed with vision, talent and superior craftsmanship. These are gifts that truly keep on giving.
