#JWLV - Couture 2014 Sneak Preview

Yoko London

British-based design firm Yoko London has spent generations sourcing the most exquisite pearls and crafting breathtaking collections of fine jewelry. The above earrings feature pink round Freshwater pears and faceted amethysts set in 18 karat rose gold. Part of the colorful "Calypso" collection, which features gemstones in rich colors combined with rare and unique pink and white pearls, the opulent proportions of these earrings make them a dramatic statement and a sure-fire conversation starter.

Salon 401

Laurent Gandini 

Laurent Gandini’s jewelry is characterized by typical Italian popular tradition themes that evolve in a modern and sophisticated way by the incorporation of decorative motives such as lace, flowers and embroidery. The collection comes together with a feeling that is soft and poetic and one with a focus on lightness and volume. The above pair of "Superorchid" earrings are crafted in rose gold, made by lost wax casting with engravings and processed by hand in the designer's Milanese atelier.

Bijoux De Mer

Bijoux De Mer designer Renee Launiere is dedicated to helping women feel beautiful 365 days a year, not just on special occasions. The above 18 karat gold, ruby and 18 karat gold nugget earrings for the brand's "Couture Collection" are saturated with a beautiful berry hue. Each piece of Bijoux De Mer jewelry is designed exclusively by Renee Launiere and hand-crafted either by the designer herself or her team of in-house artisans. 

Next Wave 11


Plevé is fine jewelry crafted with a micro mosaic surface of precious gems, mostly diamonds. It is a craft so new and revolutionary it received a patent for its invisible setting technique. Inspired by the way diamonds organically fit when mixed sizes, shapes and colors are sculpted with an artist's hand, the above "Flame Raspberry" pendant contains reddish berry diamonds that fade into white and yellow diamonds, all set in 18 karat yellow gold.

Vieri Haute Joaillerie

Rose, white and yellow gold combine with bi-colored tourmaline, Imperial topaz and white and brown diamonds in "The Lily Collection" byVieri. To the designers, mother and daughter team, Kate and Guya Merkle, the lily is an emblematic flower that has accompanied the family's company since the very outset. A symbol of purity, innocence, love and well-being, "The Lily Collection" blends tradition with modernity, giving it a timeless quality.
