LAS VEGAS – Color is one of the early trends at Jewelry Week in Sin City as luxury designers are using a variety of materials to offset their gold, diamonds and platinum jewelry.
For example, Montreal-based designer Claude Thibaudeau uses a rose sapphire to add a touch of color for his new design from the La Royale Collection. This beauty, called “La Vie en Rose,” uses a centered semi-mount diamond accented by a diamond pave on its four prong setting. Then there’s the “floating set” side diamond. It’s available in platinum or 18k white gold and the center diamond is available from 1 ct. to 4 cts.
Meanwhile, Rina Limor, for her Caviar Collection, uses studded gemstones like black onyx and sapphires combined with trendy turquoise and coral gemstones offering what she calls a “mod” look for contemporary women. Pictured is an 18k gold wide cuff bangle with diamonds and a center moonstone.
More to come.
