FrontRunners: The Diamond Web She Weaves

<< Back to Robb Report, September 2004

After spending 20 years behind the scenes designing jewelry for high-profile retailers such as Asprey in New York, Sharon Khazzam (516.482. 1213) has stepped to the fore with her Rare Jewel Collection. Khazzam’s collection, which is sold exclusively at Barneys New York, features unusual, one-of-a-kind designs, including an elaborate fancy-colored diamond bracelet set with 49 stones in various shades of pink, blue, green, purple, yellow, and orange. “Each diamond is set in a weblike pattern to create a supple design that feels like a piece of fabric draped upon the wrist,” explains Khazzam. Despite nearly 18 carats of rare diamonds and a price tag of $720,000, the bracelet was designed to evoke a casual elegance for day or evening.
