Originally from the Ukraine, esteemed jewelry designer Misha Zakhalov moved to New York City in 1990 and reproduced Fabergé eggs for a living before launching Misha Jewelry in 1997. Misha’s handmade designs include blue topaz and sapphire necklaces, pink opal and smoky quartz earrings, and amethyst rings distinguished by dainty wire flourishes and sterling silver or 14 karat gold filigree. Eye-catching yet understated, Misha Jewelry will add a dash of sparkly elegance to your little black dress or favorite sweater-and-jeans ensemble.
By setting chunky turquoise, chalcedony and pink opal stones in wire-wrapped baskets, Mikhail Zahkalov’s handcrafted necklaces and earrings are a perfect balance between bold and delicate. This Russian designer, who used to work for New York’s Museum of Modern Art replicating Fabergé eggs, has a superb sense of color, as evidenced by the gorgeous purple-and-moss-amethyst and blue-topaz-and-whiskey-quartz cluster necklaces.

Misha jewelry is distinctive for its rough-hewn stones set inside gilded cages — literally, gold that’s been woven around pink opal, chalcedony and turquoise. The designs of Jennifer Rose also combine semi-precious stones with gold, but in chunkier styles like the colorful bib necklaces and pendants jangling with clusters of coral, amethyst and moonstone.
