Whether you bring in your own sketch or a photo you’ve fallen in love with, creating custom jewelry is an exciting collaborative process.

Re-Settings Bring new life to a favorite stone or a piece of jewelry in your vault with an updated design and setting. It’s the perfect way to turn a sentimental jewel you never wear into an heartstopping new favorite.

The design process starts with a sketch that is made by one of our jewelry vendors once you’ve discussed your vision. The next part is selecting the gems, metals and finishes you have in mind. This process often encompasses various pieces of reference and ideas from you and the designer and is an exciting journey. The piece you create will be truly yours alone, and we are confident will exceed expectations.

Trade-Ins & Upgrades If you have a diamond or heirloom gem that you no longer want to wear, why not trade it into something fabulous? We’ll give you an objective valuation that can help pave the way towards something you’ll adore!

FRANK ANCONA


F R A NK A NC O NA

Designer/Friend Since 1978

What art, music, literature, architecture, inspires you the most? The Sistine Chapel is inspiring to me, not only for the fabulous frescoes, but the incredible colors in the fabrics on the garments, since my main interest is in gemstones of color and combining the colors. I love Opera that is melodic, but listen mostly to piano violin concertos. I am great fan of Palladio’s architecture, Mediterranean architecture and the architecture of Ricardo Leggoreto. What jewelry do you wear everyday? A blue jade saddle ring. I found the stone on a trip to China. The folklore is that “one day all jade will turn blue and be the most prized of all gemstones.” I guess I got a sneak preview. Why do you love creating custom pieces? Because they are created especially for the person and become signature pieces unique to them and are cherished like talismans. What’s your favorite restaurant in the world? It’s right in my hometown of San Francisco, La Ciccia. A family owned Sardinian restaurant.

PAUL MORELLI

Designer/Friend Since 2000

What’s your greatest inspiration? Strong independent women. How do you unwind? I love to read, just read Last Train to Memphis, about Elvis... what a cool guy. I also go the gym as often as possible. What historical figure would you have liked to design jewelry for? Blondie. What 3 words describe your jewelry? Really #@*%ing awesome. Why do you love creating custom pieces? I know what I love, but applying my aesthetic to someone else’s point of view takes me on an unexpected journey that perhaps would not take place without their involvement. I simply love the idea of knowing where we begin, but not where we end. That sense of discovery is the beauty of custom creations.

What made you become a jewelry designer? My grandfather is my inspiration, he personified the American Dream.

KIMB ER LY MC DO NA L D

Designer/Friend Since 2010

What jewelry do you wear everyday? An evil eye given to me by a friend, purchased in Turkey, earrings (usually geode or rose cut diamond studs with my signature irregular bezel) and typically a pendant. (Opal cross or long agate and geode.) What’s your favorite museum? I love natural history museums. The one in NYC has a pretty great rock room. I also love the Louvre. I got to know it well while I lived in Paris. What is the most exciting commission you’ve ever done? The diamond encrusted ring that was part of the custom made dress by Jason Wu for Mrs. Obama for the second Inaugural Ball. It was an honour to be asked and it’s wonderful to know that throughout history my work will be able to be seen at the Smithsonian. Who would you love to design jewelry for? I have the most amazing clients. The Kimberly McDonald collector inspires me. She is radical without being showy, she is irreverent and beautiful. And I am extremely happy designing for her.

SUTRA JEWELS


SUTRA JEWELS

Designer/Friend Since 2013

What’s your greatest inspiration? I am mostly inspired by the gemstones themselves. There is so much beauty inside of one small piece of material that came from the earth. The possibilities to create around it then become endless. What’s your favorite travel destination? The Maldives. There is nowhere else quite like it. What historical figure would you have liked to design jewelry for? Grace Kelley. Why do you love creating custom pieces? We often make only one of a particular design, so I like to treat every piece I design as if it were custom. I sometimes envision the woman who may come to own it. However, the fun lies in making something that is a direct reflection of client and designer in one.

KATHLEEN DU GHI J E W E L E R

Designer/Friend Since 2003

What would you design if it weren’t jewelry? Buildings. There is such a finite combination of precision and creativity. What designers’ clothes look great with your jewelry? It’s a wide-ranging collection and pairs with everything from the quiet elegance of Brunello Cuccinelli to the crisp modernism of Helmut Lang to the opulent splendor of Badgley Mischka. Why do you love creating custom pieces? Because the pieces have so many layers of meaning and bring us both such joy when complete. What’s your favorite restaurant in the world? I just discovered the Glen Ellen Star in Glenn Ellen, California. Wonderful and fresh farm to table food.

Color Her World as Never Before

FANCY DIAMONDS Colored diamonds are one of the earth’s rarest and most sensational wonders, as only one in 10,000 diamonds emerges from the earth with natural color. “Vivid” yellow diamonds are perennially the most sought-after, while the rarest and most valuable are saturated pinks, blues, and greens. What’s her favorite color? If you don’t see that perfect piece in our jewelry cases, let us know what you’re looking for. We’ll source it from one of the world’s top diamond houses or our network of diamond brokers and we can design something that will truly make her life more colorful.


THE FOUR C’S The Four Most Important Criteria for Choosing a Diamond

Carat:

”Carat” is the easiest characteristic to assess as it is simply the weight of a diamond. One carat is equal to .2 grams. Each carat is made up of 100 “points,” so a carat that is “50 points” is .50 carats.

1.00 ct.

2.50 ct.

4.00 ct.

6.00 ct. All sizes are approximated.

Color:

Diamonds (except “fancy” colored diamonds) are valued by “colorlessness.” Less color means higher value. The scale begins with the D (colorless) and continues through the alphabet, with increasing presence of color, to Z.

H

D

N

Z

Clarity:

Most diamonds have birthmarks called inclusions (internal) and blemishes (external). The less marks a diamond has, the more valuable. Diamonds are given a clarity grade that ranges from Flawless (FL) to Imperfect (I3).

VVS2

VS2

SI2

I2

Cut:

“Cut” begins with the shape of a diamond, “round brilliant” being the most common. As a value factor, it refers to a diamond’s proportions, symmetry and polish. For round brilliants, the GIA rates cut from Excellent to Poor.

Round

Asscher

Emerald

Oval

Marquise

Designer/Friend Since 2013

How is your new collection different from your other work? Our previous collection was inspired by our trips to Japan with a focus on cherry blossoms and landscapes. Our new collection was inspired by a trip to Thailand where we loved the colors and textures of the temples and palaces. What designers’ clothes look great with your jewelry? It’s not about the designer, it’s more about the person wearing it. But I like to wear it with anything ranging from Rag & Bone to Ralph Lauren to an evening gown. What is the most exciting commission you’ve ever done? A wood cuff bracelet with 18k yellow and rose gold, pearls and diamonds. It was a special piece we were asked to do for a major TV personality.

DA NA KELLIN

Designer/Friend Since 2014

What’s your greatest inspiration? Trees. I am both fascinated and delighted every time I take a walk and find a perfect fallen leaf, an amorphous-shaped pod, an interesting pattern in bark. The shapes of trunks and branches are so evocative and poignant. Last time I was in Italy, we traveled to Puglia where there were thousand–year-old olive trees that had two thick trunks that were intertwined. The orchard resembled a dance floor filled with couples embracing. What artists inspire you most? Music is an integral part of my design process. I make a new playlist for every collection and it’s usually a mixture of new music and standards that have been on every playlist for years. Newer music includes Ray LaMontagne, The Shins, Beck, Arcade Fire, Amos Lee, Little Dragon and London Grammar and oldies include Stevie Wonder, The Smiths, Zero 7, Steely Dan, Bonnie Raitt, Me’shell Ndegeocello, Radiohead, Kate Bush, Simon and Garfunkel, etc. What 3 words describe your jewelry? Unique, sexy, wearable. Shown on front:
