As of this past Friday, the price of gold had reached an astounding $1,746 per ounce. With the economy in a seemingly endless state of turbulence, all predictions point to even more increases in the cost of this precious metal. However, for all in the jewelry industry, price fluctuations bring new opportunities to explore and create with alternative, sometimes unique and lesser known, metals. For this edition, we’ll focus on the resurgence of silver, which has steadily been regaining its position in the luxury sector over the past year and half.
The newest sterling silver designs from our Prestige Promenade designers cover a wide range of styles, showcasing the metal’s versatility and potential. We expect to see even more variations in the coming months. Here are just a few of the new silver options to crop up from some of our member designers:
Seasoned in their use of silver, the brand introduced the playful, celebratory “heart design” pendants, commemorating love for various U.S. cities. The newest installment, “Heart of New York”, retails for just $195 and is available exclusively at Bloomingdales and 59th Street.
The Midnight Dahlia Flower Medallion includes .54ct diamonds set in sterling silver for a luxe look retailing at $1795, while the artistic Cushion Chelsea Black Rudilated Quartz Ring totals in at just $350.
From the brand’s sterling silver collection, these fashion-forward bangles, fashion bands and cocktail rings have been a hit amongst consumers. The line is available in the traditional silver finish, as well as the patent-pending yellow and rose gold plated finish. 60 new styles have been added to the collection since its Prestige Promenade 2010 debut with more are in the pipeline for next season. Bangles shown below start at $1,500 and rings at $2,000 retail.
