The beautiful jewel hues of fall, the natural shapes of the season, and the art deco period inspired this collection. Royal Jewel is a combination of strong drop earrings and rings influenced by the modern and ornate style of art deco. The collection also includes pinecone inspired pieces done with a vintage flare which I often seem to be drawn towards.
This is my first collection to showcase rose cut gemstones. The Rose cut, which has been in use since 1520 was created to resemble an opening rose-bud. The characteristic of the Rose is that it is flat below, and forms a hemisphere or low pyramid above, covered with small facets. This type of cut is not as widely used which is why I wanted to create a collection that showcased it.
This fall brings a sense of new beginnings as we embrace the richness of the season - it is my hope that translates through "Royal Jewel".
