New York City’s Rockefeller Center inspired Doryn Wallach to unveil a classic collection—note the Art Deco–esque columns—of white pearl jewelry in 18k yellow gold. “Pearls have always been timeless, sophisticated, and typically conservative,” she says. “I chose to work with them because I wanted to put my own modern twist on an old classic.”
