Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but a woman cannot subsist on simple diamonds alone. When you’re ready to treat the woman in your life to the best and most unique luxury jewelry, diamonds are always a solid choice but think beyond the classic solitaire diamond ring, stud earrings, or tennis bracelets, there are jewelry designers crafting stunning pieces that make a statement. Diamonds? Of course, but even beyond the diamond, there are options that will melt her heart.
The Kaleidoscope Ring by Moritz Glik Fine Jewelry
Brazil native Moritz Glik has been creating stunning handcrafted pieces since he moved to New York City in 1991. He’s been featured in every publication from British Vogue to New York Magazine and Oprah; and, his jewelry has adorned a long list of celebrities including Nicole Kidman, Goldie Hawn, Mila Kunis, and the Dixie Chicks.
One of our favorite pieces he created is the Kaleidoscope which features a bevy of diamonds floating in a sapphire orb surrounded by an 18k gold ring. This beautiful ring with the orb (a signature of Glik’s) is a mesmerizing conversation starter. Available at Amazon.com.
Tahitian Pearls from Tiffany
As classic as diamonds, pearls are a necessity for a comprehensive jewelry collection, though a bit stuffy, but multicolored Tahitian pearls are anything but grandmother’s pearls. These gorgeous pearls are strung on 18k white gold and are held to the high standard of Tiffany. Splurge a bit and opt for the matching bracelet. Available at Tiffany.
