This year at Couture, the Jacquie AicheTribe is introducing the "Squash Blossom" collection. The above necklace is made of 14 karat rose gold, diamonds, lilac quartz, moonstone and cow bone, and perfectly embodies the designer's signature aesthetic. A go-to resource for stylists and luminaries alike, Jacquie Aiche adds an element of whimsy to all of her designs, giving them a sense of ethereal ease with just a hint of rebellion.
Toronto-based designer Anne Sportunexpresses nature's simplest form in her new "Stick Collection." Made of 18 karat gold and diamonds and featuring the designer's signature Stardust texture, this collection captures the beauty of organic asymmetry. As with all pieces hand-crafted in Anne's studio, this piece perfectly combines the precious with the everyday.
Sarah GrahamThe above "Colored Pebble Stacking Rings" by Sarah Graham Metalsmithing are made with 18 karat gold, oxidized cobalt chrome, various colored sapphires and white and cognac diamonds. The collection is textural and organic, with a subtle color palate that is decidedly feminine. Sarah's design inspiration comes from her life--from the beauty of nature that surrounds her, the intense love she has for her husband and son, and from every new opportunity to challenge herself and perfect her craft.
Samantha Louise DesignsDesigner Samantha Louise believes that jewelry can serve as a constant reminder of who we are, where we came from, and where we're headed. The above earrings from the new "Leaf Collection" are inspired by the designer's love of gardening and its process of planting a seed, nurturing it, and watching it grow. Made of 18 karat rose gold and diamonds, the collection expresses a sense of earthy sophistication and is a wearable classic.
