Jewelry is a tradition in Priyanka Kedia’s family, so when the designer behind Ayva for Estenza (a new designer line for the manufacturer) was looking for inspiration, she went no further than her own past. The first thought that came to mind was her rich Indian tradition of jewelry heirlooms, including pieces handed down to her from her mother. Elements of those styles—yellow gold, tiny diamonds, and vibrant colors from enamel accents and other gems—are top of mind for Kedia’s newest offerings that are part of a still-unnamed jewelry collection inspired by her family heirlooms. I love this double-finger ring in 14k gold with a gorgeous cacophony of small stones and unexpected yellows and purples—courtesy of sapphires and amethysts, respectively—serving as the color focal points. The piece is a modern nod to family and Indian culture, including a healthy love of jewelry.
Double-finger ring in 14k gold with 4 cts. t.w. white sapphires, 1 ct. t.w. amethysts, 0.6 ct. t.w. yellow sapphires, and 0.4 ct. t.w. diamonds, $6,800
