Front Runners May 2015: Diamond Frenzy
A visit to the Cy Twombly exhibit at London’s Tate Modern last year inspired the designs in Wilfredo Rosado’s new Bakkheia collection of jewelry (available through Just One Eye, justoneeye.com). “I loved his frenzied, maniacal way of scribbling on the canvas,” says Rosado, who is based in New York. The jewelry, which is made in Italy, is constructed with layers of circular 18-karat gold interspersed with rare colored Scarselli diamonds. “I wanted to showcase colored diamonds in an artistic way,” says Rosado, noting that such stones are typically set in a classical design. The ring shown here features white, pink, and yellow diamonds, and is priced at $184,000. The earrings, which cost $254,000, are set with white, blue, and green diamonds.
