One of the coolest things I encountered at JCK Las Vegas this year was the Plumb Club’s Radiant Universe initiative.
Within its pavilion at the show, members of the Plumb Club displayed new collections created with a theme in mind: celestial icons—the polar star and sun, specifically.
The idea for this theme, and its compelling products displayed under the Radiant Universe name, came from market research commissioned by the organization, which found that constellation-related products really resonate with the consumer as a leading trend.
And how can it not be? The moon and stars are quite the compelling icons—particularly in jewelry—proven time and time again with each iteration and differing designer perspective (my colleague Emili Vesilind mooned over this Monica Rich Kosann collection earlier this week).
The new all-gold collection from Pamela Zamore, then, should be right up a stargazer’s alley.
Aptly named Sky, this new collection is a diversion from the silver pieces typically offered by the jeweler, who debuted her sterling collection in 2017. With the architectural details imbued throughout this collection, you might not be surprised to learn Zamore formerly spent her days as an interior designer.
If you’re seeing this line and thinking of all the ways you can mix and match the pieces (for your store’s display just as well as on your person), then you’re picking up what the designer’s putting down—her intention with the collection has been conveyed loud and clear. “It’s what each wearer brings to the piece that bespeaks their own style and individuality,” said Zamore in a statement. “I love to see how women mix up my pieces and make them their own.”
When asked about her use of the star motif, the designer says, “The stars and radials of my Sky collection are rooted in my love of the mystery and magic of celestial elements. I weave these brilliant motifs into my designs in a way that catches the light, bringing radiance to the jewels themselves, and, ultimately, to the woman who wears them.”
Personally, I can’t decide which piece I like best (always a tough problem to have, am I right?), but I think it’s obvious this is a line that speaks well to the modern collections driving us jewelry lovers to part with some of our money these days. Retailers looking to stock some new lines for Christmas would do well to consider this one—though stars are a year-round attraction, there’s something undeniably festive about them during the holidays.
