What's New in My Collection!

I've been out of pocket for a while...traveling to Italy with my family and, prior to that, to Las Vegas for the largest jewelry market of the year.  This summer is going to be a busy one!  I have trunk shows in Sun Valley, Idaho and Jackson Hole, Wyoming, plus I am debuting a new line of vermeil jewelry on ShopNBC at the end of July (more on that later!).

In the meantime, my fabulously talented jewelers have been working away to execute some of my newest designs as well as your custom projects. 

Check out these two pair of cufflinks that I just put out!  The pair on the left features faceted cabachons of natural Afghanistan lapis as well as Australian opals.  The bold sterling silver and 22kt yellow gold granulation gives these such a masculine appeal!  I love the archeaological history behind these fossilized Nautilus shells.  Setting them in cufflinks makes a bold statement for the man who likes french cuffs during the week and runs ultramarathons on the weekends.

These colorful 22kt yellow gold and sterling and gold stack rings have colored gemstones from my vault that are more colorful than candy!  Each is hand-made and one of a kind.  They can be worn separately or stacked.  Have your own stones you would like mounted this way?  Ask one of us to get you a price! 

Look for more, new designs as the summer continues.   Ciao!

Congratulations (AGAIN) Jenn!

Our very own Jenn Whitekiller was honored back in March 
at the First Annual Torch Awards

Jenn's beautiful earrings won 2nd place in this national competition! The earrings were crafted from 18kt white gold, diamonds, pink sapphires and Tahitian pearls.
The Torch Awards competition competition invited all state jewelers associations to submit winners of their own individual 2010 design contests to compete nationally during the March show where attending buyers voted on the winning designs. 

We are so proud to have another talented, award winning designer here at Naifeh Fine Jewelry!
