Successful jewel brands show a combination of contemporary trends with classic designs that appeal to a wide range of consumers.

Yet jewelry is a cutting-edge organization so it is unusual that we privy creative minds to certain creations that truly love and proudly direct some of the most groundbreaking brands in the industry.

The fact today is changing! We asked a handful of designers to share the single piece they conjured up and that they love most in 2019 to conclude a stellar year of jewelry design.

Daniela Villegas Samito ring

I like the Samito ring. It is inspired by the opal he gave me as a gift from my husband. A symbol of adaptability and flexibility are the chameleons. I love the playfulness of this item. I wear almost every day the moving eyes and the smile.

Todd Reed red diamond bracelet

“This year, we created some kind of exclusive harness that blends bright, fancy-cut diamonds with shiny diamond accents. We have been stuck off red diamonds for some time, and I love how we could explore more variety within this exciting color palette by the size and scale of this design.

Vale Venus ring

“We’re fond of the Venus ring because everybody’s shape flatters and we’ve wanted to turn around the trillion shape to counter the shank. The white paved diamond highlights that slip through the stone are very eye-catching, and this ring stands out on the finger although it is not a large ring.

Neha Dani earrings

“I was very inspired by the outer space fluid spirals and nebulae curves. It was a fun challenge to get the circles right with these earrings as they gang around and graciously and beautifully frame blue saphires.”

Talon Venetian Glass raised intaglio signet ring

“My intaglio signet rings were lifted by my Venetian glass This ring is my current favorite because I have been working on finding an artist for a long time to create my meaningful symbolic designs in glass and finally found someone in Italy. To me, the Sacred Heart[ above] reflects commitment in all its many ways and is a powerful symbol of remaining true and committed to your personal journey.

Sophie Kahn, Cofounder and co-CEO, AUrate

AUrate fan earring

“This year, my favorite piece I designed must be our Art Deco Fan Pearl ring. This makes me feel very happy, and I want to dress up instantly with Daisy Buchanan (from The Great Gatsby) and hang out in a beautiful atmosphere with my parents. Sometimes that’s just the feeling you want from your jewelry (especially when it’s fairly priced and sustainable too).

Zoë Chicco

“I always tell my son that I love him ‘ to the moon and back, ‘ which is a quote from one of our favorite books, so every time I wear it, this medallion reminds me of him.”
