Bellissimo! Jewelry designer Paolo Costagli’s flower-bright baubles seem freshly picked from a Florentine garden...and it’s no wonder why: Inspired by his childhood home of Florence, jewelry designer Paolo Costagli has said that he finds inspiration for his enchanting designs in memories of the beautiful country-side, art and architecture of Italy. His masterful eye, on the other hand, comes from training: Now based in New York City, Costagli first left his hometown for California at the age of 20 to pursue his gemologist degree. He opened up his first boutique in 1991, but not before a stint as an apprentice in several South American gemstone mines. The culmination: a treasure trove collection of colorful pieces that stand the test of time.
When bold, vivid gems are done right, the effect is both nostalgic and dazzling all at once—as it is with this selection from two of the top names in fine jewelry. Cushioned by delicate settings, even the most brightly colored stones here drip with elegance, especially the pearl-adorned pendants, diamond-shaped bangles, and dazzling cuffs.
Jewelry can be a great way to infuse a pop of color into an otherwise monochromatic ensemble—it's an easy recipe for a high-impact look, and one that we rely on time and time again. In this sale, you'll find the pieces to make it happen, from rings set with bright stones to multi-hued bracelets and necklaces.
There’s something so dazzling about rich, pastel-hued gems. These two jewelry designers express a love of such color, through both simple elegance and byzantine extravagance. First, Robert Wander makes an impact with vivid, rutilated crystals, in ornate bezel settings. Offering a more spartan, yet equally alluring approach is Paolo Costagli, with pieces like rings of eye-popping green tourmaline and blue topaz briolette earrings.
Fans of bright, candy-colored jewelry will love these vibrant, youthful baubles from designer Paolo Costagli. Choose from a range of gemstones, from green peridot to pink sapphire to blue topaz, set in statement-making cocktail rings, neck-grazing drop earrings, and bold bracelets. Understated wood, ivory and diamond combinations join the selection, in the form of bead necklaces and teardrop-shaped earrings.
