FrontRunners: Classic Comeback

<< Back to Robb Report, December 2013

Angela Cummings was considered one of the great jewelry designers of her era, and when she closed her business and left Manhattan in 2003, her clients were distressed. Now, after 10 years of living in Utah, Cummings has returned to the jewelry scene with the Angela Cummings for Assael collection (www.assael.com), which she created in partnership with the New York pearl house Assael. The collection features pieces made with cultured South Sea pearls, gold, and pavé diamonds. It includes the oak-leaf earrings, textured bracelet, and ring shown here (prices upon request).
