Love Italian Style
To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Italian fine jewelry firm Picchiotti has debuted an opulent new wedding jewelry range—featuring engagement rings, wedding bands, and jewelry intended for the day of the celebration—that epitomizes classic Italian style, in all its gemmy glory. This is a collection for your more-is-more clients: Its ultraglamorous styles include a round-cut diamond ring set with contrasting lines of black onyx, and a bypass ring wreathed in baguette-cut white diamonds and topped by two yellow diamonds chiseled into hearts. Many of the styles make use of the brand’s Xpandable technology, which—through not-insignificant feats of jewelry engineering—allows rings to expand up to two sizes.

HOT STOCK TIP
Alternative engagement ring designs with colored center stones have long been the forte of Maniamania, a millennial-friendly fine jewelry collection based in Sydney and New York City. The brand’s latest engagement ring design, Beloved, retains the atelier’s signature edge but also features a handful of feminine-feeling hallmarks borrowed from antique rings, including a sharply tiered shank and a rose-cut center stone that sits extra-high—like a sparkling cherry on top.
