BEST of the BEST 2014 | Style |Jewelry | Diamonds: Leviev

Colored diamonds—particularly red and blue ones—are commanding record-breaking prices at auction, and Leviev is transforming some of the most exceptional specimens into elegant, wearable jewelry. The house has mastered the art of integrating museum-quality colored diamonds into such remarkably light and modern designs as these new Red Flame earrings, which feature two radiant-cut red diamonds totaling 1.02 carats mounted with 15 carats of pear-, marquise-, and oval-shaped white diamonds. The stones’ minimally visible metal support produces an almost ethereal effect. (212.763.5300, www.leviev.com)
