A unique lady deserves a unique bauble. Designs that are earthy, but elegant and traditional, but modern, reflect the timeless statements of ancient goddesses and 21st century power women alike. A balance of materials, like sparkling gemstones and chunky metals, is perfect for the “ready for anything” kind of girl. Such is the hallmark of the singular renderings of this Huntington-based designer. Bonus: no one else at the New Year’s Eve party will be wearing anything like it.

Rubies and sapphires, straight up emeralds or orange and blue sapphire wristlets boast more than 60ctw each of the gemstones. Glamour girls will stack all three for an uninhibited embrace of precious color to brighten the dreariest of winter days—or create the sparkliest evenings at a secret resort getaway.

Since diamonds are a girl’s best friend, why not cover her in them? The ideal “little jacket” that works wonders on cool spring nights or with a pair of jeans is reimagined in this unique design. The combination of it being super light-weight and dyed with lights and darks makes it ideal for any occasion.

When it comes to that woman in your life that has it all, give the gift of memory.
