Seasoned jewelry designer Amanda Keidan dropped by JCK yesterday to give me a peek at her newest stackable diamond bands, among other items. Miniscule baguettes, inverted black round brilliants, and traditional colorless stones, as well as princess-cut rubies perch on slim 14k gold wire shanks, boasting both bezel and bead settings. The effect is sweet, subtle, and whispers vintage styling, while the price points have wide appeal: Starting at just $395 retail for a movable leaf-motif number with 0.06 ct. t.w. melee, these rings are a must-have for gifting, and multiple occasions’ worth of rings create a powerful effect on the hand. Ten band variations currently exist.
From left, 14k gold stacking bands: 0.05 ct. t.w. round brilliant, $450; 0.18 ct. t.w. inverted black diamonds, $750; baguette cluster, $1,850; leaf motif with 0.06 ct. t.w., $395; diamond baguette and princess-cut ruby band, $900; and 0.15 ct. t.w. diamonds, $850
