I was treated to the most wonderful visit at Vianna B.R.A.S.I.L. during JCK Las Vegas this year. With a buzzing spot in LUXURY, the international brand is truly a place you feel lucky to be. Karla Antunes, marketing and creative director of the brand, took me through all of its latest designs, and hearing her talk about their inspiration is an inspiration in itself. She lit up when she discussed the architercture of Brazil, the muse for most of the pieces I was privy to see (and try on). A mental tour through the country has me putting a visit there near the top of my list, and the narrative, accompanied by Vianna’s incredibly vivid, spectacular jewelry, made it all the more real. It was just about the time I thought we had gone through everything I was going to see when Karla pulled out these one-of-a-kind rings, each featuring a glowing cabochon tourmaline bursting with color, from the Vianna B.R.A.S.I.L. Lux collection. I was like a kid in a luxury candy store, particularly craving the green tourmaline variety, encircled in diamonds—but the largest of the bunch, a pink center framed in green tourmalines, was also spectacularly yummy. At one point I had all of the rings on one hand, the ultimate fantasy. Who doesn’t love playing dress-up, especially with baubles like these?
