In December, my colleague Amy Elliott shared the news of Muzo Emerald Colombia’s epic designer collaboration, as the gemstone purveyor tasked a roster of very talented designers to craft pieces using its untreated, irresistible emeralds. You can read all about that—and see jewels from the likes of Coomi, Erica Courtney, Daniela Villegas, and more—here.
On that list of designers involved in the extensive collab is the very talented Dana Bronfman, whose pieces I have admired for quite some time, and who always has something up her sleeve this time of year with JCK Tucson right around the corner. Well, while I—we!—wait to see what she’ll delight us with in the desert next month, I wanted to specifically call out her designs in partnership with Muzo, because they’re really good.
That recognizable aesthetic—her signature Oculus design in some, a hammered matte gold texture in others—gives the already-delicious Muzo emeralds the homes they deserve, in Fairmined 18k gold with black and white diamond accents. I jumped the gun and already shared her cuff bracelet for the collection—arguably the headliner of the group—in a previous blog post, so please be sure that you see that. I got too excited to wait, I suppose.
Dana Bronfman will be showcasing her gorgeous gems at JCK Tucson again this year, February 6–9 at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa. You can learn more about the show by visiting jckonline.com/tucson.
