The

ESSENTIAL

A fine jewelry wardrobe should last a lifetime — longer than the clothes in your closet — and curating it deserves as much attention as your fashion wardrobe. Building a jewelry collection takes time, but the fun begins with these seven essentials. They are the foundation upon which you can

build your signature look. They are the starting point for mixing and matching, and adding more colors, layers, and volume. Don’t be afraid to mix expensive pieces with inexpensive ones, but always go for quality with the basics.

1. classic ear studs Diamond ear studs never get old. They will take you from the gym to a job interview and never look out of place. That said, ear studs don’t have to be set with diamonds. Try sapphire stud earrings surrounded by diamonds. Or peridots, or pearls. Nor do they have to be round. Oval and square cuts are now recognized as contemporary classics.

2. stackables and layers Just as a fashion wardrobe of basics can change from day to day, so can your basic jewelry wardrobe thanks to the art of stacking and layering. Combining several small pieces in new ways allows you to change your jewelry wardrobe from one day to the next. Be creative with your everyday bling by mixing metals, colors, styles, and sizes. With rings, look for east-west settings that make them easy to stack. With bracelets, quality is especially important, since they will be happily jangling Michael M Rose Gold, White Gold and Yellow Gold Chevron Stack Rings.

It can be paired with a stack of bangles for an even bolder or dressed up look, or set with gemstones — but make sure the settings are snug and the workmanship is excellent, since daily wear can take its toll.

4. cocktail ring Your wedding jewelry is essential but conventional; adding an elegant cocktail ring adds panache and has the ability to make a powerful statement about your personal style. A great cocktail ring can be the one factor that pulls a look together, adding volume, color, and bold contrast. Most cocktail rings are set with one large, colored gemstone in the center surrounded by smaller gems. The presence of multiple gems gives you a chance to create unexpected color combinations, allowing you to show your creative side.

5. a classic watch If you have already invested in a tailored blazer, a good handbag and diamond stud earrings, then you understand the value of classics. Now it is time to add a grownup watch to your wardrobe. It should be a high-quality timepiece, with a good mechanical movement, a sturdy bracelet or strap and a strong case made of gold, steel, ceramic, or titanium. A classic timepiece should be a clean and simple hallmark of good taste. Design codes include needle thin markers, slim profiles, neutral dial colors, and basic functions: hours, minutes, and seconds.

6. drop earrings Earrings are the most important element of a jewelry wardrobe. People tend to look at your face first, and earrings frame your face and help create a polished first impression. Many women say they feel naked without a pair of earrings. Drop earrings are useful for their versatility. They can add a pop of color

7. statement necklace Why should bold statement necklaces be reserved for stars on the red carpet? Formal occasions, weddings, and black tie functions call for a bold statement piece, something that constitutes the ultimate expression of your personality. A great necklace has the power to turn a pretty outfit into a party outfit, or to add a pop of color to a classic, neutral ensemble. That said, you don’t need a big necklace to make a statement. A simple necklace can be layered with others to turn the volume up or add color. It still makes a statement because it is your signature piece, something you proudly wear for special moments.

David Yurman’s new Châtelaine® collection is a beautiful combination of simplicity and complexity. The Châtelaine ® collection exalts the stone. The central element of each piece is a finely cut colored gemstone that takes center stage as a solitaire gem. Each is cut in a fancy checkerboard, which places facets on the top of the gem for maximum light reflection and high color saturation. It is interpreted in a variety of gem colors, including citrine, blue topaz, amethyst, quartz, and peridot. The

QUESTIONS WITH

BICEGO One-of-a-Kind Diamond Lunaria Necklace.

1. Your designs are famous for their intricate goldsmithing. Why do you love working with the surface of the gold?

Marco Bicego: Gold has always been my medium of choice; it’s the hallmark of my brand and my personal heritage. Having spent every summer at my father’s goldsmithing atelier in Vicenza, the gold capital of the world, I learned my art under master craftsmen. Gold has been a cornerstone of my craft ever since. It’s a great metal to manipulate by hand, using the ageless Bulino technique, which creates hundreds of textured grooves on the surface and remains practically unalterable over time. My approach to gold blends old world Italian craftsmanship with my contemporary vision and artistry, making each piece unique and perfectly imperfect.

J E W E L E R S

2. You have recently added more color to your collections. How do you combine color and gold in a way that is unique to your collections? MB: Our combination of color and gold is distinct

because of the wonderful play between the textured finish of our hand-engraved pieces and the dazzling colors set against them. The liquid-like texture of the gold allows the colors to interact with it in a way that is unique and signature to the brand. The brand’s core collections are always being expanded, which includes adding vibrant colors with semi-precious gemstones. Many of our collections are customer favorites, so we design the extensions as the logical evolution of them. 3. What is inspiring you right now?

I’m always greatly inspired by my travels,

MB: I’m always greatly inspired by my travels, seeing exotic places and encountering wonderful cultures. My most recent inspiration has been the African Masai tribe. They are an ethnic group of semi-nomadic people who inhabit southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. They wear these beautiful,

intricately beaded and woven necklaces that are multi-layered and elegantly fall against their body. I was so amazed by the artistry and craftsmanship of them that I named my most recent collection Masai. The pieces are made of hand-coiled strands

4. If you could give women one piece of advice about jewelry, what would it be? MB: Don’t be afraid to layer! Wearing a great statement piece is always a striking option, but adding a stacking bracelet

or necklace can transform your look completely. All of my pieces are meant to be layered and worn together in different combinations, so I say mix and match to find what works and have fun with it! 5. What do you like to do when you’re not designing jewelry? MB: I absolutely love cooking. Growing up in Italy, I had access to fresh ingredients, and my mother was always in the kitchen.

As a child, I would watch her and try to interpret her recipes as my own. I now have a wonderful list of recipes that I can pass down to my children and share with friends when I’m entertaining.

s your love grows and marriage is on the horizon, engagement rings are imagined, designed, or discovered. Though the sea of rings is infinite, one will inevitably stand out above all the others and become “the one.” Here are some engagement ring fashions that have continued to resonate over time. Stacking fashion rings aren’t new, but in the bridal space it’s a trend that has gained momentum. A beautiful engagement ring begins the journey of this stacked look. When searching for an engagement ring, consider a classic solitaire in a shape you desire. Alternatively, a sparkling halo with a gorgeous pavé band is eye-catching as well as timeless. Or harken to times past with intricate filigree, beadwork, or engravings on the band that will stand out among the throng. Should you decide that the stacked look is right for you, take care that the diamond is set in such a way that other bands that sit beneath it create a combination that is both attractive and comfortable. When selecting your wedding band, consider whether the style will work

with other rings over time. You will want to add pieces which mark commemorative occasions, such as anniversaries, birthdays, the birth of your children, or just periodic celebrations of your love. Whatever you choose, your rings should be a reflection of your love and spark memories of the moments shared throughout your life. Being environmentally conscious is on the minds of many brides and grooms today. If this describes you, you’re in luck. Today there is an array of options available to you that are stylish and beautiful while allowing you to tread lightly on Mother Earth. Recycled metals are a great way to conserve resources: gold, platinum, and palladium can all be reprocessed, and many jewelry designers are choosing this option. Some couples are opting to buy antique engagement rings. This earthfriendly trend combines environmental sensitivity with the popularity of vintage styles. Alternatively, you can select a trendy vintage stone, such as a rose cut or old mine cut diamond, and feature it in a new setting of your choice. What is old becomes new again!

A fun look that has been popping up recently is the two-stone ring. Most designers have incorporated at least one of these designs in their engagement ring collections. This ring features two diamonds that are usually the same size and shape. What is the significance of a two-stone engagement ring, you ask? One stone represents your true love and the other represents your best friend. It’s a fun and lovely way to remember why you chose the person you did to spend the rest of your life with.

Oval Diamond Cluster Engagement Ring.

Many of today’s designers are taking advantage of laser-cutting technology to enhance engagement rings. These rings appear to be one large diamond, but don’t let the look fool you! These diamond cluster rings are actually smaller diamonds that are precision cut to fit together perfectly to give the illusion of one large stone. These cluster rings are available in most stone shapes and are very difficult to discern from the classic single-stone engagement ring. Therefore, consider this style if you want extreme brilliance at a lower cost than a traditional ring.

Look around and find the ring that speaks to you. After all, you’ve already fallen in love with your partner, why shouldn’t you fall in love with a ring that reflects and symbolizes that love?

reaking with tradition

Alternative engagement rings for brides who think outside the jewelry box Today’s brides and grooms are anything but typical. From where and how they wed to what they wear, couples tying the knot are creating their own rules of engagement that reflect their unique personalities. Never before has there been such diversity in the wedding category. “There are no rules when it comes to weddings these days,” says Carley Roney, co-founder of The Knot, an online wedding planner. “The ideal wedding looks however the couple envisions it. The perfect wedding is when you can see the couples’ personalities infused in all the elements.” For varying reasons, women are waiting longer to marry. Bridesto-be are typically older (on average 29), independent, and savvy about what they want. “Women are more empowered today by their successful careers and increasing buying power. They’re savvy in making decisions for their weddings. They’ve done a lot of research online and know what they want and how to get it,” says Severine Ferrari, creator and editor in chief of Engagement 101.

T

he Patravi TravelTec, with its fascinating time zone function, has become the signature model of Carl F. Bucherer. It contains an inhouse Caliber, the CFB 1901.1, with an integrated complication

that allows the simultaneous display of three time zones, along with a chronograph function. The date can be adjusted forward or backwards for easy setting. The hour hand can be disengaged from the rest of the train using the crown and moved either forward or backward in exact one hour increments. The hand thus goes through 30 degrees for each 60-minute step. The movement continues to run so that the exact time is kept while the watch is being set. The third time zone on this unique watch is applied to the bezel, which features a second 24-hour scale. The rotating bezel is not moved by simply turning another crown, but with the aid of a new, single push button mechanism, which is located at 10 o’clock. The TravelTec is also a sports watch, with a chronograph timing function, water resistance to 50 meters, and a rubber strap that has an extension feature. The large case is 46.6 mm wide and 15.5 mm thick, and made out of stainless steel. The Patravi TravelTec by Carl F. Bucherer.

It is a time machine, developed with all the passion of the watchmaker’s art: strong character, imposing, yet harmonious.

Patravi ScubaTec Another powerful collection, the Patravi ScubaTec, is available in bold color combinations, with black and blue ceramic inlays on the bezel, against a patterned dial. The helium valve, rubber strap with integrated adjustment, five-hundred-meter depth rating, and chronometer rated movement (automatic Caliber 1950.1) qualify the ScubaTec as a professionally rated diver’s watch. Even in murky waters, the diver can still read the time thanks to a generous application of Super-

LumiNova, which glows light blue in the dark. The sapphire crystal over the dial is 4 mm thick and, therefore, completely resistant to pressure underwater. The unique shade of blue on the ceramic bezel was developed exclusively for Carl F. Bucherer. Carl F. Bucherer was founded in Lucerne in 1888, and today, the company remains in the third generation of the family under Jörg G. Bucherer. The timepieces and movements created by independent watch manufacturer Carl F. Bucherer are developed and produced in the brand’s own workshops in Switzerland. Important milestones are the manufacturer’s own movement families, which are partly driven by an external rotor — an innovation that Carl F. Bucherer was the first manufacturer to put into series production.

Boundless expanses, unfathomable depth... The oceans of the world have fascinated mankind on every continent from time immemorial.

MAKERS OF THE ORIGINAL SWISS ARMY KNIFE | ESTABLISHED 1884


The clear trend in men’s jewelry in the last several years when gold became very expensive was the use of alternative metals. From tungsten and stainless steel to titanium and other exotic alloys, alternative metals have become staples in men’s jewelry. Because they’re more affordable and easily mixed with materials like leather, rubber, wood, and enamel, there has been tremendous creativity in the category. But with gold prices more attractive and stabilized now, men are gravitating to gold, especially in rings and with diamonds. Besides white diamonds, men are keen on black and brown diamonds, as well as gems like sapphire, garnet, black onyx, jasper, lapis, and tiger’s eye. Beyond traditionally manly stones, a broad range of gems like turquoise, coral, and mother-of-pearl is set in men’s jewelry. Personalization is important to men, particularly in ways they William Henry silver surfboard pendant necklace, Kaha style, with the Maori symbols for strength.
