Spring is almost here, and summer is around the corner. Rather you love the ocean, the mountains or the desert, Ippolita Jewelry has something for every taste. Many colors of the stones remind me of sea glass, and others such as the turquoise pieces, remind me of the beautiful desert southwest. Enviable every time my daughter and I go into Neiman’s or Nordstrom’s and head to the jewelry counter, we go to see what they have new in the Ippolita area, then to John Hardy and Alexis Bittar. Each piece looks like a well thought out piece of jewelry architecture. The pieces are simple, clean and the texture is exquisite. One of my favorites are the slightly oval bangles, they are so pretty when stacked in several different colored stones and gold or silver. Even the bangles in resin are just perfect for the upcoming summer season, the Ivory resin with 5 stone in polished turquoise, love it!!!
Coming from Florence, she had a history of being close to antiquities and Etruscan objects. “I love the greenish colour of that period’s gold,” she says. “It really looks like treasure-chest gold, something I have finally recaptured.”
I love the statement she made…”Mothers buy my designs for their daughters and vice versa”…it’s so true, you can wear it with a nice Chanel dress (which by the way, I don’t own), or a pair of blue jeans! I hope if you haven’t had the opportunity to see some of her jewelry, you do in the future, you won’t be sorry.
