FrontRunners: Long-Awaited Debut

  • Georland peridot ring

    Parisian jeweler Georland (www.georland.com)— a family-owned business that has been discreetly creating exceptional pieces for other, more high-profile houses for the last six decades—will present its first signature collection in September. All of the designs, including a $120,000 120-carat peridot ring (shown), display a whimsical flair. Each piece begins as a gouache drawing or a simple sketch; the design is then forged in gold and set with jewels.
