Today, Donna Vock’s name is synonymous with breathtaking statement jewels and Old World opulence — but things could have turned out very differently. Before taking a job in the Fifth Avenue office of H. Stern, the prestigious Brazilian jeweler, Vock had planned on becoming a geologist. Working at H. Stern inspired her to shift her career focus from geology to gemology, and the rest is history. After earning a degree from the Gemological Institute of America, Vock worked at Tiffany & Co. and Lazare Kaplan Intl. before launching Donna Vock Designs, her own jewelry label, in 1992. Now based in Connecticut, Vock’s handmade bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings remain true to her motto, "jewelry about you." Her range of classic and eclectic styles appeal to jewelry lovers all over the world.
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.
Delicate or substantial, the pieces in this fine jewelry sale are wrought with a deft hand and a brilliant eye for color. From David Harris, find rough-cut single strands of black- or champagne-colored diamonds. Donna Vock’s jewelry takes a bolder approach, in the form of flower-carved aquamarine earrings, blossom-topped rings with rock crystal petals and a jangly bracelet comprised of lustrous colored pearls and bezel-set stones.
