Jewelry Designer Sarah Ho Makes an Enchanting New York Debut



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.
