The First Fine Jewelry Bracelet Made for the Apple Watch, a Line Cast from Hand-Carved Wood Molds, and More New Collections for January

Plus Kit Heath introduces its Entwined collection.

Creative Casting

Pioneering jewelry brand Rigby Leigh truly thought outside the box when it came time to distinguish their brand from the rest. The Brooklyn-based designer uses specially designed hand-carved wood molds for jewelry casting. The process is very low-waste and results in jewels with a fascinating, unique texture.

Recycled and Ravishing

Leia Zumbro Jewelry is environmentally friendly and organically inspired; her designs look almost like something that grew rather than something that was forged, with lines and shadows that call to mind fascinating rock formations and the enthralling unevenness of old forest growth.

Smart and Sexy

LAGOS’ Smart Caviar Collection is the first fine jewelry bracelet made specifically for the Apple Watch. Stylish but versatile, the collection’s latest expansion offers beautiful rose gold styles. Finally, a way to make this cutting-edge tech device as stylish as it is useful.

Tantalizing Twists

The Entwine Collection from British brand Kit Heath is a fantastic example of why this designer jewelry line is so successful. The bold and luxurious Entwine designs are tactile, beautifully flowing pieces. Each section of the collection’s hero statement chain has been individually cast and linked, making it as comfortable to wear as it is striking.

Industrial Icon

Kate Eickelberg’s jewelry combines the organic and the industrial to create unexpected beauty. This dichotomy is perhaps best represented by her fascinating takes on the classic pearl necklace, which pairs lustrous pearls with steel ball bearings and gold elements that allow the ball bearings to spin freely in place. A gorgeous symphony of opposites.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
