The Stardust Collection By Harwell Godfrey Is Wonderfully Dreamy


Our time with April is nearing its end (that was fast, right?), but there’s still enough time to squeeze in a few more collections featuring its birthstone—not that we need an occasion to talk about diamonds.

But this latest from Harwell Godfrey is especially notable, given the designer’s fond use of vibrant color, often all at once in a rainbow of gems. The Stardust collection marks Godfrey’s first time forgoing color, though her work with diamonds here has you not even missing it.

Still present is the designer’s recognizable flair. Geometric stone patterns (her signature triangles, paired with round and baguette diamonds) create luxurious pieces that pay homage to a glittering night sky.

The collection is rich with scene-stealing options. Maybe the most striking of the bunch is a loosely angled hexagonal ring (above, and also at top), featuring a center diamond set in three rings of raised gold and surrounded by a network of starry round and baguette diamonds interspersed with triangular details that make it appear as if a star is bursting open with sparkle.

A pendant and pair of earrings mirror that design, the latter fantastic oversize statement studs, the former a beautiful medallion-esque piece that would look divine draped on a chain of any length.

The necklaces in this collection will be guaranteed hits, especially the tennis-style strand of hexagonal diamonds that culminate in a single golden hexagonal link embellished with Godfrey’s signature triangles. “More is more” will feel like the motto of the moment after a year-plus of sweatpants and everyday jewels (not that we would ever stop loving or wearing them), and this particular piece has that extra oomph without being too over-the-top or high-maintenance. It’s simple luxury with an X factor that will have heads turning when it’s finally gets to be worn out on the town.

The collection also houses an exquisitely crafted bangle and stacking (or wedding!) band, each featuring an alternating pattern of triangles and diagonally oriented lines of round and baguette diamonds. The layout creates an illusion of movement—like shooting stars or rapid movement through the galaxies—quickening the pulse just a tiny bit (or perhaps that’s my heart racing with the desire to wear them). Whatever the reason, these pieces should have no trouble zooming their way into customers’ hearts and collections.
