Gold, March 2020: Bombe Rings, Page Sargisson, and More


The Perfect Date

Birthstones and nameplate necklaces are sweet, but a less clichéd way to celebrate a loved one (a child, a partner, etc.) is with a jewel that marks a special date. Brooklyn, N.Y.–based designer Page Sargisson has expanded her collection of 10k gold calendar pendants with the new Chakra Calendar charm, a coin surrounded by multicolored sapphires and engraved with a calendar month featuring a white sapphire to mark a particular day. We love the way it essentially stops time in its tracks.

Bombes Away

Dome-shaped bombe rings and earrings hit their peak popularity in the 1940s and 1950s, and have cycled in and out of fashion since. The rounded style, which packs the attention-getting panache of an oversize cocktail ring but also the sculptural sleekness of traditional Nordic silver design, is enjoying a resurgence that we expect to intensify in 2020. David Webb, Pomellato, and other haute jewelers keep bombes in their permanent assortments. But now upstart brands—such as Established Jewelry and Grace Lee—are experimenting with the sloped style too.
