Debuting five new looks of classic, jewelry essentials, Black, Starr and Frost has introduced its new “Signature” everyday luxury collection in time for holiday gift giving.
Crafted from pure platinum, 18-karat gold and the very finest diamonds and set in intricate hand-crafted designs, the new collection showcases top quality variations of the five core pieces essential to a woman’s jewelry wardrobe, says Alfredo Molina, chairman of Newport Beach-based Black, Starr & Frost:
The ultimate in style and function. Everyday stackables encompass sparkling rings, bangles and bracelets – ideal for stacking – in a trio of golds: yellow, rose and white. The finely crafted pieces include diamonds ranging from .33 to 6.7 carats. Prices start at $1,598.
A great stud. Timeless diamond studs are a wardrobe essential. Black, Starr & Frost offers four new stunning variations on this classic, including the “ultimate stud”: a three-carat center stone in a magnificent halo setting of pave diamonds. Prices start at $7,500 for stud earrings and at $150,000 for the “ultimate stud.”
Let there be light. A glorious pair of chandelier earrings with gleaming diamonds and varying shapes can make any outfit. Offered in three intricate designs – each in 18-karat white gold with dozens of glittering diamonds. Prices start at $10,795.
From office to opera. The versatile opera-length strand of diamonds can be worn in both formal and everyday settings as a single opera-length stunner or as two classic double strands. This exquisite 18-karat white gold diamond necklace has 215 diamonds weighing in at 53.58 carats. Price: $161,150; other variations start at $75,000.
Lock in your look. Classic cuff bracelets are easy to wear and make an arresting statement. A flawlessly crafted piece features rows of radiant pave diamonds set in white gold. Prices start at $27,000.
According to Molina, investing in a few core pieces of jewelry adds style and flair – and is just as important as stocking up on clothing basics. The new collection was carefully developed with this in mind. “All women should have a few jewelry staples in their repertoire – versatile, timeless pieces they wear anytime, anywhere for a lifetime,” he says. “As with clothing, the key to a good jewelry wardrobe is to purchase quality pieces that will withstand the test of time.”
America’s first jeweler, Black, Starr and Frost has steadfastly maintained its brand – and commitment to everyday luxury – for more than 200 years.
