Whether it’s a collaboration with the world’s coolest supermodel, a debut into the realm of high jewelry or a “lit” 10th anniversary, these are the three new collections that should be on your radar.
Messika by Kate Moss
Unlike other celebrity partnerships, in which A-listers simply bolt their names to various design houses, Kate Moss was instrumental in her collaboration with Parisian jeweler Valérie Messika. Known as much for her personal style as she is for commanding runways, Moss imbued her signature Bohemian vibe into designs inspired by Art Deco and the East, using the house’s white diamonds set in 18-karat yellow gold for tassel necklaces, statement earrings, flapper-style head pieces, anklets and hat pins. But the duo didn’t forgo color: One of the most striking items is a necklace showcasing the vibrant green hues of large, teardrop malachite stones, a piece reminiscent of Messika’s Black Hawk jewelry, introduced last year. $3,000 to $250,000
Fernando Jorge Flame Collection
Ever since his debut a decade Aho, Brazilian designer Fernando Jorge has been on fire, captivating collectors with his unusual sculptural creations. His latest collection, Flame, celebrates his trailblazing career by reinventing the traditional pear shape into architectural designs that mimic the flickering of candlelight. The stones, from diamonds and emeralds to citrine and Paraiba tourmaline, are set on an angle to emphasize the effect. Though based in London, Jorge worked on the new pieces during quarantine in São Paulo, a period of pause that seems to have reignited his creative spark. $2,200 to $500,000
Pomellato La Gioia High Jewelry
This year’s crop of extravagant, over-the-top jewelry from elite Parisian houses suddenly seemed out of place, destined for the vault rather than the body. But leave it to an Italian house to deliver the perfect dose of sprezzatura. The laid-back luxe delivered by Pomellato La Gioia’s thin, diamond-encrusted collar or a brown-diamond-encrusted chain necklace looks as good with a pair of jeans as it does in a seas of black tie and ball gowns. Even a more elaborate, three-tiered necklace adorned with the Italina jeweler’s signature Nudo stones, is uncannily versatile. $6,950 to $276,000
