Colored Stones: Priyanka Kedia’s New Ayva Brand & More

CAN’T-MISS COLLECTION Miss Mumbai For Priyanka Kedia’s new Ayva brand, the San Francisco–based designer mined her family’s jewelry-rich past in Mumbai, India, for present-day inspiration. She reimagined an heirloom necklace with marquise-cut stones—Ayva’s signature shape—across 30 SKUs in 14k gold with a gorgeous array of tiny marquise-cut sapphires and amethysts, among other shapes and colors. “The marquise in my grandmother’s necklace took almost a year to source,” Kedia says. “Finding matching stones was not easy.” The result? A contemporary nod to her grandmother’s jewel box treasures. Top: open hoop earrings in 18k gold with 1.75 cts. t.w. white sapphires, 1 ct. t.w. yellow sapphires, 0.7 ct. t.w. amethysts, and 0.3 ct. t.w. diamonds, $3,400; right: Crescent necklace in 18k gold with 0.5 ct. t.w. diamonds and 0.55 ct. t.w. amethysts, $3,8
