I so admire the designs from Hidalgo, because an element of whimsy nearly always comes into play. From swooping lines, floral embellishments, and colorful enamel, its new collections are a sight to behold. So I was enthused when I learned that Hidalgo would be debuting a new collection at the JCK LUXURY show this year—one that’s pretty heavy on high trend. Spanning two, three, even four fingers is the new collection of hand rings, glittering with diamonds and set in 18k gold.
The whimsy is not lost on this collection, with many of the rings showcasing botanical influences and even dragonflies. My favorite is above, a tiny design that encompasses nearly the entire hand, with thorny detail and looks to kill. It’s definitely on my list of things to see in person at JCK Las Vegas.
Designer Silvio Hidalgo is always looking to inspire women with his designs as “they are, after all, who keep the jewelry business going,” as he tells me. I think he’s hit the mark with this one. The designs are trendy, yes, but crafted in fine materials that I can see women pulling from their jewelry boxes time and time again to liven up ensembles for special occassions or just because.
Is Hidalgo scared of being too trendy? No way. “Although one always wants everyone to like their designs, when something is so new, most people react with caution—until their best customers have to have it!” he says. “I’m just happy to be among the pioneers in designing something that is new and exciting.”
The new collection, with prices starting just under $2,000, promises to be fresh off the bench by the time JCK Las Vegas rolls around, and I won’t miss a chance to see it for myself. I’ll meet you there: JCK LUXURY, booth LUX617, May 27–June 2.
