FrontRunners: Powerful Pairing

<< Back to Robb Report, December 2004

Twenty years ago, fashion icon and jewelry collector Diane von Furstenberg forged a relationship with the Stern family, a jewelry dynasty in Brazil. That connection recently became the basis for a 45-piece jewelry collection—available exclusively at H. Stern’s Fifth Avenue boutique (800.747.8376)—that reflects von Furstenberg’s style and spirit with chunky, mystical-looking gemstones and discreet talisman charms. The collection’s bold Power Rings are intended to represent the empowerment of modern women, says the designer, who personally favors the oversize, asymmetrical-cut, crystal-and-gold ring. Other standouts include the large Sutra link bracelets and necklaces that are pavéed with diamonds, sapphires, or garnets, and come with attachable love knots.
