FrontRunners: Feathers and Fringe
Fashion-industry veteran Wilfredo Rosado (www.wilfredorosado.com), whose career has included work for Armani and Versace, has designed his first fine-jewelry collection. Imaginative and slightly edgy, the pieces range in price from $12,000 to $140,000. They include white-gold-and-diamond earrings with dangling feather plumes; ebony blackamoor figures dressed in royal, urban-style garb made of gold and gemstones; and cuffs, rings, and earrings adorned with delicate layers of diamond-studded gold-chain fringe. Rosado’s jewelry is made in Paris and Italy and is available at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.
