Best of the Best 2016: Style | Jewelry: Hemmerle
The latest creations from Munich-based Hemmerle affirm the brand’s place as one of the world’s most innovative and collectible jewelers. Unveiled in March, the [AL] Project combines colorful anodized aluminum with exceptional diamonds and gemstones in a single brooch and 15 magnificent pairs of earrings, including the floral examples shown here. The large-scale adornments, which boast 9.26- and 9.31-carat diamond centerpieces, are perhaps best described as wearable art. (hemmerle.com)
