Bergdorf Goodman has had an action-packed fine jewelry events calendar since Labor Day. Starting Wednesday, the New York City luxury department store will welcome London-based designer Sarah Ho.
Daughter of the late-’60s model and “It girl” Suki Potier, Ho grew up in Hong Kong and Macau before settling in the U.K. Those looking to shop and/or connect with her will have the chance to do so at Bergdorf’s through Friday, Sept. 20.
Creating only a limited number of pieces per year, Ho has historically operated her business exclusively on a by-appointment and bespoke basis for international private clients, and she recently opened a showroom in London’s Mayfair district.
Her Bergdorf’s engagement will be the first time she has presented her jewels directly to customers within a retail store.
As such, she’s packed her treasure chest with mounds of feminine, one-of-a-kind masterpieces featuring stones such as vibrant tourmalines and luscious rubellites in beguiling tonal combinations. Settings are wrought with delicate lacework or gleaming enamel.
Pearls are also a Ho signature, whether it’s rare blush-pink conch pearls, antique natural pearls, or lustrous South Sea and Tahitian varieties.
The examples below are a bit of what you can expect. The brand will also be officially launching the Numerati collection, a series of rings in 18k gold and diamonds that plays to the idea of numerology and the ineffable power of wearing talismanic jewelry.
Top: Clockwise, from left: Bey Ruby Queen earrings in 18k white gold, $40,000; Audrey necklace with rose-cut diamonds and pearls in 18k yellow gold, $32,500; and Wisteria Green studs with diamonds, peridot, lime chalcedony, and tsavorite in 18k white gold, price on request
