FrontRunners: Gold Statements

    Diane von Furstenberg has something to say with Sutras (www.hstern.net), the fashion designer’s latest jewelry collection for H. Stern. Each of the collection’s eight gold-and-crystal designs displays inspirational words—love, laughter, harmony, truth—engraved in von Furstenberg’s handwriting. Forged in high-polish 18-karat gold and set with cabochon-cut rock crystals that reference Indian Mogul-era jewelry, the weighty pieces are priced from $3,200 to $19,400.
