It can be—and has been—argued that hearts for Valentine’s Day are cliché. But really, is there anything wrong with that? This symbol, so simple yet unfailingly classic, a staple time and time again in many a showcase and personal collection, still has the power to surprise. It can be as perfectly plain as a sleek metal silhouette, as intricate as a gem-laden, filigree-detailed find, or as grand as a rare, fancy colored diamond ring.

No, I’m not talking about a malfunctioning AC system (the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa promises to be quite comfortable, I’m sure of that): I’m referring…

That Design Life: Jewels Made By People You Want to Know

Comments

Farm-to-table. Small batch. Shop local. As more and more consumers demand to know not only where their goods are coming from but who is making them, designer jewelry (that is, jewelry truly dreamt up and realized by individual designers) is more important than ever. In a share-everything society, we often feel as if we know celebrities, athletes, and fashion designers, because we’re privy to an insider’s look at their lives (or at least, the lives they want us to see)—a rarity, if it existed at all, even 10 years ago. But these jewelers—yes, you may call them celebrities, as it…
