The Eternal Setting from Katherine Semyonov, the designer behind Katerina Maxine in New York City, is the artist’s entrée into bridal. The Eternal Setting is made in platinum, features an eternity engagement ring and a matching wedding band set with emerald cuts, and positions pavé on the space underneath and in between each prong. According to Semyonov, emerald cuts alone are being used for aesthetic purposes. “When rounds are used, the effect comes out differently,” she explained to JCK. “The straight edge of the emerald cuts looks best.”
For now, just one style of engagement ring and one eternity band are available (shown). The samples feature a 5 ct. center with 3.23 cts. t.w. stones and a band with 5 cts. t.w. diamonds for $90,000 and $33,000, respectively.
While those prices are out of reach for many, Semyonov says she is in the process of making a wedding band for a client for $8,000 retail. The entry price for the engagement ring is $18,000.
Katerina Maxine will debut to the trade at the upcoming LUXURY Privé event July 25–27 at the Pierre New York Hotel. Katerina Maxine, which specializes in royalty-inspired jewels from eras past, has just three accounts at the moment.
