Harry Winston Cluster Earrings

If you’re in search of classic diamond earrings, but studs feel too basic and hoops too casual, Harry Winston offers the perfect, chic-but-not-flashy option with its Winston Cluster, a spray of pear-and marquise-shaped diamonds artfully arranged in ear clusters that are perennially on-point, day or night.

Deborah Pagani Triple Honey Necklace

The fetching gold chain that anchors this Triple Honey necklace by New York-based Deborah Pagani features a trendy curb link, but it’s the three bezel-set pink tourmalines evenly spaced around the collar that elevate this bold 1980s-esque style from simple to sophisticated.

Emily P. Wheeler Bangle

The pink opals that cap the finial ends of this 18-karat gold open cuff by Los Angeles-based Emily P. Wheeler aren’t the only unconventional details that set the bracelet apart from the many similar styles on the market. Bands of pink enamel and scatterings of diamonds lend the piece an artsy, just-sparkly-enough flair.

Reza Crescent Earrings

In the fall, Olivier Reza, son of the gem dealer and master jeweler Alexandre Reza, relocated his family’s storied high jewelry business from Paris’ Place Vendôme to New York City. To coincide with that move, the company introduced a digital which includes pieces priced over $5 million. While the pink sapphire crescent-shaped earrings studded with diamond discs seen here retail for a much more modest sum, they are emblematic of Reza’s bold new direction. And perfectly suited to lovers of haute joaillerie with a fiercely unconventional aesthetic.

Chopard Happy Diamonds Watch

In keeping with Chopard’s pioneering commitment to responsible sourcing, the jeweler’s new Happy Diamonds Icons watch comes in a 32 mm case made of white gold that’s been traced, tracked, and verified to come from ethical sources.

Katherine Jetter Opal Necklace

A beguiling blue opal from Lightning Ridge, the legendary Queensland mine whose black and white opals are standard bearers for the gem, forms the heart of this striking necklace by Australian-born Katherine Jetter. The designer, now based in Boston and Nantucket, where she runs a jewelry salon called The Vault, has framed the gem with a surround of white diamonds set in 18k gold electrified by a hot pink E-coating. The effect is nothing short of sublime.

Thelma West Earrings

For her contribution to Sotheby’s first groundbreaking “Brilliant & Black” exhibition last fall, the Nigeria-born, London-based diamond jeweler Thelma West created this swinging pair of Asscher-cut diamond ear pendants, set in a memorable combination of rose gold and brown ceramic. Dramatic yet minimal, West’s work is a spellbinding example of what happens when excess (in this case, more than 8 carats of diamonds) meets restraint.
