Front Runners November 2015: A Charmed Life
For centuries jewelry has brought a sense of empowerment to its wearers, or even served as a talisman, and the creations of Jennifer Fisher (jenniferfisherjewelry.com) capture the spirit of that history. The New York–based jewelry designer emblazons her gold pieces with diamond-studded words, names, declarations, and symbols. “I want to make the jewelry that women wear every day, and it makes them feel good,” says Fisher, whose flagship store is on Fifth Avenue. Her gold-and-diamond jewelry ranges in price from $400 to several thousand dollars, and custom orders are designed and made in New York and delivered in 6 to 8 weeks.
