Fresh, modern, and fun are a few ways to describe the recently debuted Estelle and Lita by Royal Asscher jewelry collection. The longtime diamond jeweler teamed up with the “American Boy” songstress about six months ago to design a lighthearted fine jewelry line. Their shared inspiration? New York City.
“New York has this amazing energy and gives us our love for making beautiful and exciting things in life like music and jewelry,” says Lita Asscher.
The pair met, chatted about aesthetics, and then went through an extensive design and review process that culminated in 30 SKUs made in silver and 14k and 18k gold with diamonds, amethysts, and black onyx. Motifs include surreal looks like eyes and more-common ones like stars, incorporated into double finger rings and stick pins. You’ll even find few floating diamond elements—a familiar look in Royal Asscher jewelry. The pair also held a swanky party this fall to help celebrate the debut.
“The colors purple, yellow gold, and black and white diamonds are what we worked with,” says Asscher, adding that they’re some of Estelle’s favorite hues.
Suggested retail prices range from $750 to $9,500, and pieces start shipping at the end of the month.
Silver Double Ring with chain and diamonds and black rhodium, $2,530
Stickpins in 14k gold and 18k gold-plated silver, $770–$2,620
