The white diamonds stand out strikingly against the oxidized 22 karat gold.  Add in Cathy’s  classic “negative space” element and this earring becomes a true “must have”!     Jamie Joseph Oval Sunstone Earrings Jamie’s stunning 14 karat rose gold post Sunstone earrings capture the warm spirit of the season.  Throw them on for a hike in the country or your annual apple picking excursion!   Rosanne Pugliese Garnet Necklace Dark and Stormy?  We are mystified  and delighted by this romantic garnet necklace, set in 18 karat yellow gold. Great as a stand alone piece or layered with one of Rosanne’s delicate gold chains.   Kothari Small Dish Diamond Slice Earrings   We can’t say enough about Kothari’s shimmery 18 karat gold earrings with tessellated diamond slices. These versatile diamond earrings are your “go to” for a casual lunch date or your next black tie affair.   Margery Hirschey Triple Drop Earrings   Margery Hirschey ‘s magical andalucite and 22 karat gold earrings possess that fine gemstone  sparkle we adore with a hip and cool style.  We loved the oh so subtle hue of these stones that will mix and match with all the earth tones in your wardrobe.   Yasuko Azuma Four-Diamond Ring   Yasuko’s 4 stone diamond ring set in 18 karat gold is one of our favorites new pieces.  Her careful selection of each and every stone make her one of a kind creations a true work of art. The satiny grey hues of these diamonds are a fresh and welcome interpretation of a new way to wear diamonds.   Brave Collection Berry Tassel Cuff   New this season from the Brave Collection, each Tassel Cuff imprinted with the word "BRAVE", has a tassel woven with cotton and metallic fibers, and a dangling Buffalo Tooth Charm, representing a small piece of a greater whole.  Available in Sterling Silver or Gold Vermeil, the collection is handmade in Cambodia by a local artisan to empower women across the globe.

Studio Visit: Caroline Ellen

The Peridot Girls enjoyed a unique opportunity to visit Caroline Ellen in her studio last week. The heartbeat of Peridot has always been the love we have for our designers, and as new team members it’s integral to our role to get to know the talent, swoon over the work, and appreciate their creative process and highly skilled techniques. Learn, swoon and appreciate we did, melting alloys (pure copper, silver and gold) with a hand torch, pressing molten metal into ingots, and pulling them into wire. To say these ancient gold-smithing methods are labor intensive is the understatement of the modern world. But Caroline wouldn’t have it any other way, “I’d rather make each piece flawlessly than concentrate on volume,” she professed. Now, we understand so much more about her precise, Virgo nature, which insists on perfectly cut diamonds of the highest grades, and rare gemstones worthy of heirloom and collectors items. We’re talking about you, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Ethiopian Opal. Also important to note, we felt like quite the star guests upon entering Caroline’s world. Greeted with chocolate chip cookies the size of scones and sour cream coffee cake, locally pressed juice and fresh cut hydrangeas, I think it’s safe to say we will all be coming up with reasons to pop by our much adored host again soon. Not to mention, the royal blue velvet and grosgrain jewelry rolls (finished with vintage Charvet knot cufflink closures) that neatly display her treasured samples, further demonstrate that no detail has gone unnoticed. Imagine the level of care she puts into her work.

Best of New York Now Gift Show

  IMG_4656 4.42.44 PM This past weekend, the Peridot girls made their way through the Javits Center jungle to visit some of our favorite designers at the New York Gift Show (a.k.a. New York Now).  It's easy to get lost in a maze of tightly knitted booths, woven together with streaks of harsh overhead lighting (anticipate hand selfie photo quality disclaimer in three... two...), illuminating glittery cases of fine jewels and precious metal. Thankfully, we had our very own retail guru Dawn Hendricks to lead us through the fray, and lead us she did, straight to Anne Sportun, Adel Chefredi, Yasuko Azuma, Jamie Joseph and Peridot newcomer Ruth Tomlinson. Here are some of our favorite new items hand picked by Dawn to debut at Peridot in the coming months, and don't worry, the lighting in our designers' campaign photography is far better than the trade show.  Without further ado:
o Anne Sportun knows exactly what alternative brides are searching for today, as evidenced in her Vintage Collection of pre-set engagement rings in art-deco inspired settings.  Just like our store, each design is on trend but with an old world twist- nodding to a forgotten era that makes every new piece feel like a modern heirloom.  We love how diamonds and cornflower blue sapphires seem to be interchangeable depending on personal style, and as Barb (Anne's business partner) pointed out, brides today have the freedom to personalize their ring with individuality in mind, and to venture (just a little bit) off the beaten path.  On that note, the AS team is seeing lots of grooms-to-be propose with "presentation rings" and then come back to reset center stones later on.  After getting acquainted with the Vintage Collection however, we imagine many of our alternative brides keeping these sparklers on their fingers for years to come!
b5c52a68eac4ae245fbcae4be124a249 Adel Chefredi understands women.  We have it on record from Adel that the one thing jewelry aficionados today must have in common is courage.  Courage to steer off the course of traditional pendants and requisite eternity bands.  Courage to express themselves through their personal selections based on emotion and not what's expected or specifically on trend. Deep dark sapphires, while not a thing of the past, are no longer preferable to the cool cornflower blue because of perceived value.  You like it?! Then wear it.  Wear what speaks to you.  Oh Adel, we do.  We so do.
Yasuko Azuma Raw Diamonds Stacking Rings Natural Yasuko Azuma.  You know you're a fan of someone's work when you can look at 50 rings on a tray, make your selection, and then remake it over and over.  Every single band is so beautiful and unique, we don't envy Dawn having to pick but a few!  Yasuko's relationship with natural diamonds is akin to a botanist and her orchid farm.  Each gem is thoughtfully selected, each design developed with respect to a carefully arranged pairing between setting and stone.  YA's collection is filled with natural beauty, and we can't wait to fill our cases with more of their work!
Microsoft Word - Golden Joinery Press Release Jamie Joseph, our go to for oversized and everyday statement rings, introduces the "Joinery" collection.  Breathing new life into broken rough from gem journeys past, Jamie rejoins the opal, labradorite and tourmaline (among others!) shards with 18k gold hand hammered bezels, then finishes each band with dark rhodium plating.  The result reads like an anthropological dig for the modern era- each ring presenting as if a very small earthquake had divided the jewel into pieces, then the artisan (A descendent of Nefertiti's private jeweler? We bet...) carefully unites the halves with metal and the occasional well placed diamond, healing the earthern wound forever.  We're Jamie obsessed.  Place your dibs on these up-cycled items soon, before the staff eats up every one!

Ruth Tomlinson Encrustacean Earrings Rings

Peridot is ECSTATIC to bring our clients something very storied, romantic, and just plain delightful all the way from London.  Ruth Tomlinson will be making a grand arrival at Peridot this Fall and we are just swooning for her delicate, deep-sea-inspired collection. To tell her whole story in this post would not be a proper introduction, so trust we will follow up with a Ruth justice-worthy editorial very soon.  For now, we will say that her appeal is both that of curiosity and wonder.  She nails the "imperfect perfect" vibe with superb precision- meaning that each seemingly organic detail is highly intentional and every design element premeditated.  Each tiny earring is precious, magical and a treasure to behold.  Every band a trove of stones, with coral-like prongs and diamonds that grow like barnacles upon handcrafted gold bands.   Her style is unconventional, yet well suited for traditional Mother's of the Bride or mysterious jewelry maven alike.  She's creative and original.  We'll take it all.
