Bridal, June 2016: LVE for Leo Schachter & More


LVE Story

Leo Schachter Diamonds’ new LVE wedding jewelry line, designed with millennials in mind, features a “trifinity” motif—imagine an oval Venn diagram—in every piece. Rebecca Foerster, executive vice president for strategic planning and marketing, calls it “a powerful symbol for couples that represents the thread of their journey.” Engagement rings and bands boast Forevermark center stones or American Gem Society lab–graded diamonds in 18k gold. The starting retail price for engagement rings with AGS stones is $4,350.

On the Edge

San Francisco–based Tura Sugden’s knife-edge signature looks have a contemporary, understated appeal that is consistent throughout both her fine fashion jewelry and her wedding styles. Considering her frequent use of petite colorless and brown diamonds, her commitment rings are ideal for those with entry-level budgets or fans of a minimalist aesthetic.

“We took a gamble a year ago and stocked a mess of ovals—we went to India and bought every great make we could find. I love the shape. Now they are really taking off.”
