Thai Spirit

The biannual Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair is renowned for both its colored-stone selection and its silver jewelry design, so we were doubly excited to find Goldlip, a brand that embodies both of these desirable qualities. “I love all gems,” says owner-director Tal Levran, whose jewelry boasts a magnificent mix of rough and polished stones set in all shades of silver, many with elegant gold highlights. (“It adds a beautiful touch and style to the silver,” he says of the warm golden accents.) “We keep our style very organic, sometimes almost rough, balancing the grace of Mother Nature with very detailed craftsmanship and quality material.” While Goldlip has clients in Europe, Asia, and beyond—including about 20 small U.S. accounts—the Thai company is hoping to boost its presence in the American market. Says Levran: “We find that on every continent there are customers for our organic and nature-loving style.” —Melissa Rose Bernardogoldlip silver ring with amethyst and sapphires
