3 Diamond Jewelry Designers You Will Love
There are jewelry designers with talent and expertise...and then there are jewelry designers who truly take your breath away. When purchasing diamond jewelry, there is no reason to settle for anything less than what is awe-inspiring. That’s why Lux Bond & Green, a trusted diamond jewelry retailer since 1898, only chooses to work with the finest, most talented and passionate jewelry designers on the planet. It’s hard to pick just a handful of favorites from this artistic group, but we’re up for the challenge. Here are three diamond jewelry designers that we’re loving right now, and why you should too.
Who doesn’t love a good secret? It’s even better when the package around the secret is beautiful. Each Roberto Coin piece of jewelry hides a tiny ruby on the inside that “kisses the skin.” Only those who wear or gift one of these designs get to share this luxurious secret. It’s no wonder that Roberto Coin jewelry is adored for being feminine, bold, and romantic.
Signature collection pieces like the Princess Flower, Pois Moi, Verona, Portofino, Barocco, Classica, Navarra, and Oro use innovative techniques to beautifully integrate diamonds and gold together. You can’t go wrong with 18k gold and pave diamond statement earrings, like the geometric Navarra link drops, or the Navarra hoop huggies. Find sparkly, elegant bangles like the Portofino 18k white gold and diamond bracelet, which boasts almost 2 carats, or the exquisite 18k yellow and white gold Pois Moi, decked out with pave diamonds on a textured, hand-etched surface. Roberto Coin creates both diamond rings and necklaces with unparalleled, meticulous attention to detail. 18k yellow gold designs from the Princess Flower collection, like this pendant necklace with diamond petals and twisted gold19” long diamond lariat-style drop necklace, or the Royal Princess Flower Ring with inlaid diamonds and a paneled surface are great examples. Alluring is Roberto Coin’s middle name, and these diamond jewelry designs don’t fall short.
“Bee-che-go”... Is it Italian for “gorgeous jewelry”? Not exactly, but the diamond jewelry designer by this name does represent Italian traditions of luxury fashion, quality materials, and just the right amount of indulgence. Marco Bicego spent his childhood around gold and gemstones, where he learned about jewelry making from his father. Since launching his own line in 2000, every piece of Bicego jewelry is still created in Italy from 18k gold. Bicego employs traditional goldsmithing methods like engraving and coiling, and works directly with gemologists, model-makers, and setters to ensure that the Bicego distinction is upheld with every object created.
The coil technique, which results in a fluid, twisting gold cord, can be found in the Marrakech Onde collection, and more tightly wound in the Masai collection. Marco Bicego jewelry is also known for hand-engraved designs, produced with a tool called the “bulino.” The Lunaria, Siviglia, Lucia, Jaipur, Africa Boule, and Delicati collections feature this distinct texture. At Lux Bond & Green, we offer a bountiful array of Marco Bicego gold and diamond jewelry from a variety of collections. It’s easy to find something for every taste. For example, Bicego’s 18k yellow gold Lucia designs are delicate and ever so carefully asymmetrical. The Lucia diamond bangle bracelet is gracefully tipped with diamonds on one end, while the Lucia diamond earrings are a softly graduated, semi-hoop shape, partnered on one side with a row of diamonds. You can also find elegance in 18k yellow gold and diamond styles like the Jaipur link diamond earrings or the Africa constellation diamond pendant.
Witness the drama of the coil technique for yourself, with pieces such as the two-stranded, diamond station Masai necklace or 2-strand bracelet, or the extraordinary seven-stranded diamond Marrakech Onde ring in alternating 18k white and yellow gold. Marco Bicego diamond jewelry can be worn or gifted together as a set, but it also looks exquisite when collections are mixed and matched. This is a feat that only the best jewelry designers can accomplish. See for yourself by shopping Marco Bicego jewelry not only online, but at our West Hartford, Westport and Wellesley stores.
No list of diamond jewelry designers would be complete without Hearts on Fire. In 1996, this designer discovered a unique method to create the most perfectly cut diamonds. Now world-renowned for releasing the strongest fire from within these special stones, Hearts on Fire makes sought-after diamond engagement rings and wedding rings, as well as bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Another reason, besides beauty, that makes people love Hearts on Fire? It’s because these diamonds are guaranteed to be conflict-free, meaning that they are completely ethical. Those who wear Hearts on Fire diamonds can feel great about it from the inside, out.
To see how, take a glimpse at the jaw-dropping Euphoria engagement ring. This 18k white gold ring features a round center diamond of 1.55 carats and sports a glittering diamond band. The entire ring sparkles, thus the design is aptly named. The Aurora wedding ring, featuring seven stones in 18k white gold, haloed by 49 additional diamonds, is another stand-out piece that showcases Hearts on Fire’s talent and passion for diamonds. Partner this ring with delicate earrings like the Lorelei diamond earrings, each with a double diamond halo and 33 round diamonds, and you have a complete bridal look. Hearts on Fire jewelry is made to awe, and every design delivers.
Though we do love these three diamond jewelry designers, it is truly impossible to pick just a few from the magnificent selection available at Lux Bond & Green. Take a browse through our diamond jewelry available online, from IPPOLITA, Temple St. Clair, Gucci, and Naledi, for creative and glittering designs. However, you can’t beat seeing these gems in person, so we also encourage you to seek the assistance of a knowledgeable, non-commissioned staff member at your closest brick-and-mortar location. Make her next birthday, your engagement, wedding, anniversary, or any holiday, into something memorable and special with the magic of diamonds.
