Silver: July–August 2017



HOT STOCK TIP

Grain Spotting

The demand for bohemian-esque silver jewelry that borrows motifs from nature is heating up (could a squash-blossom craze be far behind?). Spanish sterling silver brand Uno de 50 is right on trend with a handful of new pieces inspired by grain—yes, we’re talking buckwheat and barley. The gorgeous Sunrise necklace pairs brown leather with bits of wheat-like silver and luminous green crystals to create an organic-feeling statement piece fit for all four seasons.

CAN’T-MISS COLLECTION

Channel Fine

KIR Jewelry is known for its bold, Balinese-inspired silver designs. So the wispy, gently arcing forms at the center of its new collection, Channel, feel like a real departure for the brand—and that’s precisely the point. “Our focus for the collection was breaking away from the traditional KIR look, which is more organic and bold,” says marketing director Lilly Sinelnik. “These pieces highlight simplicity.” Fluid swooshes of polished sterling silver—channel-set with gems including black spinel, white topaz, blue topaz, and citrine—anchor the collection’s pretty pendants, rings, and earrings. Both subtle and elegant, the design doesn’t have to shout to stand out.
