Couture 2015 Ready: Sleek Designer Jewels in Gold

Wed, 20 May 2015

By Erika Winters

We are about to embark on our annual trek to Las Vegas for jewelry market week, where we see the latest from designers across the globe. We can't wait to head to the Wynn for Couture, a show that always excites us, as it delivers both new and established talent for us to explore. Couture offers an incredible array of jewels from the most intricate and detailed pieces to simple shapes for lovers of all things minimal. We are especially inspired by the following pieces from Yannis Sergakis, Sophie Bille Brahe, Yossi Harari, and Completed Works--4 designers who bring classical shapes and clean lines in gorgeous gold. #CoutureReady? Absolutely.

Journey of a Gem: Interview with 'Sharing the Rough' Documentary Film Director Orin Mazzoni

Tue, 14 Apr 2015

By Erika Winters

'Sharing the Rough' Documentary Film



The documentary film Sharing the Rough, which is set to premiere at the WorldFest Houston International Film Festival on April 17, traces the journey of a rough gemstone as it travels from a mine in East Africa to a U.S. gemstone cutter, a renowned jewelry designer, and ultimately to a jewelry collector as an exquisite finished piece.

We had the pleasure of attending a private screening of Sharing the Rough at the Tucson Gem Show, where we were not only struck by the extraordinary efforts of all involved but by the passion that drives the miners to unearth the gemstones that we enjoy and wear. We sat down with director Orin Mazzoni to talk about his motivation to make Sharing the Rough and how this film offers an unprecedented window into the miners' lives, struggles, and triumphs.
