Greetings from Sin City! Team Fashion, which includes Carrie Soucy, Laura Finkelstein, and me, has been conducting photo shoots, attending evening events, and looking at lots of pretty jewelry this week. Happily, I now have a moment to myself to share some of my nifty show finds with you. Enjoy!
Chad Allison Couture, Prestige Promenade 53. Stack rings made of 18k gold feature colored stones such as iolite and blue topaz. The color combinations are sharp looking, and the rings offer an ample look on the hand for a modest sum. Suggested retail prices start at $800.
Peter Storm Designs, Prestige Promenade 41. Diamond fashion rings made of 18k gold feature negative space and an elegant feminine style that shows up nicely when worn. The look is a great value for pieces that start at $1,000.
Mazza Co., Prestige Promenade 26. Rare deep, Caribbean-sea blue labradorite pieces can be found at the Mazza booth. The color is natural, availability of material is limited, and, the color is a sharp contrast from the milky grey material that¡¦s commonly seen.

Manning sets choice chunks into pendants (shown), earrings, and necklaces. Bill Gangi at booth 34102 in the American Gem Trade Association pavilion is a supplier.
