The London-based jewelry brand Annoushka has arrived in the United States, debuting in September at the Saks Fifth Avenue flagship stores in Beverly Hills and New York. To celebrate its stateside debut, Annoushka has brought two of its collections to Saks Fifth Avenue: One of a Kind and Annoushka/24. The former, a limited collection of pieces that spotlight chunky colored gems, includes a pair of sapphire-and-ruby earrings priced at $37,500. Annoushka/24 comprises four themed subcollections: Arabesque, Cloud Nine, Shard, and Dream Catchers. Each features distinctly styled earrings, pendants, bracelets, and rings, as well as a mélange of gemstones—including onyx, agate, and jade in Arabesque; lapis lazuli and turquoise in Cloud Nine; and rhodolite in Shard. The final subcollection, Dream Catchers, is made up of pieces that prominently feature mother-of-pearl. The colored gemstones are hand set in 18-karat rose or white gold and delicately sprinkled with white, brown, or black diamonds, evoking the fresh, romantic aesthetic for which the young brand is known.  (www.annoushka.com)
