Sparkle and Charm

We can’t imagine anything more sparkly than a stretch of neatly aligned diamonds. And Cambridge, N.Y.–based fine jewelry manufacturer E.L. Designs clearly agrees. The binding design element in the brand’s latest collection is a bar shape that’s channel-set with diamonds; it’s aptly called the Sparkle collection. The five-piece series includes a bangle bracelet adorned with a row of 30 diamonds, two simple and chic bar necklaces, a tiny stud bar earring, and a bolder dangling earring. “We understand the value that design excellence and quality can make to the end customer,” says Peter Tonjes, owner and president of E.L. Designs, “and also to the jeweler who wants high turns.”

Dagger Swagger

Melissa Kaye’s Aria Dagger earring—a slash of 18k yellow gold lined with colorless diamonds—has been such a strong seller for the New York City–based brand that Kaye recently debuted the dramatic, teardrop-shape Aria Jane earring, which she describes as “the Dagger earring and its mirror image combined and inverted.” If only every evolution were this elegant.
