The luxury Harry Winston replica is best known for serious diamonds, but the jeweler’s newest designs express a more playful side. The Winston Kaleidoscope collection features a mix of gemstones, each faceted and shaped, set in symmetrical patterns with barely a trace of the metal settings visible. Here, rubellites, tsavorites, yellow sapphires, turquoise, aquamarines and diamonds form a many-hued medallion, reminiscent of the swirls it’s named for. —Jill Newman
The high quality fake Harry Winston has been favored by numerous women and they will add the brilliance to you perfectly.
Just after The Laundress sold to Unilever for a reported $100 million last January, the eco-friendly laundry brand’s co-founder Lindsey Julia Boyd started work on her next venture, a new jewelry concept called Rondel. Launched in time for the holiday season, Rondel is a direct-to-consumer personalized jewelry business where shoppers, or what she calls “co-designers,” can tell their stories with charms and lockets.
The idea came to Boyd, 44, when she remade her grandmother Irma’s charm bracelet into a necklace that became her signature style. “The charms told the story of my grandmother’s life, and each charm was engraved on the back with a special anniversary date or a love letter from my grandfather,” explains Boyd. Rondel offers more than 100 different options in gold, gemstones and hand-poured vitreous enamel. Most can be engraved with a message. The charms are made by artisans in Turkey using mainly recycled gold and mindfully sourced stones. Boyd believes the pandemic has increased interest in sentimental gifts. “Personalization makes people feel connected,” she says, “and we are all craving connections with family and friends right now.”
Guests at L’Appartement by Seeds, a Paris flat bookable for short stays, can rest their drinks on Sabine Marcelis’s Candy Cube tables or season their eggs using Martino Gamper’s salt and pepper shakers. The hospitality/gallery experience is the brainchild of Nathalie Assi, who operates the contemporary design space Seeds out of her London home. Assi says the blurring of art and life “revives the function of looking.” And of shopping: Almost every item can be bought via Seeds.
