We’ve just returned from a weekend at the amazing JA Jewelry Show in New York. Industry trade shows are terrific for inspiration – there are so many incredibly talented designers out there. Plus, it’s fun to get an insider’s sneak peak into what my favorite shops will be showing in their jewelry cases! One thing that we really noticed this year was the creativity of various designers in their choice of materials. Reclaimed and recycled pieces are still hot, but we also noticed many, many “alternative” materials.” With precious metals prices continuing to skyrocket, it’s not surprising that designers are switching gears. What was surprising was the luxurious look and feel of these pieces! One designer that I’ve recently discovered is a perfect example of this out-of-the-box thinking. Ariane Arazi comes from a long line of exceptional jewelry designers. Her late grandfather, Isaac Hasbani, founded Hasbani Gioelli in Milan, Italy — over 50 years ago!
Her own line, Ariane Arazi Jewelry, is inspired by the latest fashion trends and colors. And, in keeping with her family’s tradition, each piece – from delicate earrings, to statement necklaces, to stunning rings, and unique bracelets — is handcrafted by Ariane herself.
Her satin bracelets, pictured, are a particular favorite of mine. These have a luxe look (and feel!) and are handcrafted from satin, embellished with a sterling silver buckle. These bracelets work with everything from casual weekend wear to dressier date clothes and are available at Haute Look, Beyond the Rack and Enviius. Retail $130.
