3 Up-And-Coming Jewelry Designers Launch New Collections

Three jewelry designers are revealing new collections at the Couture Jewelry Show in Las Vegas, which will run till Sunday. They are among the dozen or so designers exhibiting in the Muse booth. Muse is a New York fine jewelry agency that representants independent jewelry designers, many of which, like these three, are international and exclusive to Muse in the U.S. market.

Anna Maccieri Rossi

The Italian born designer spent a great deal of time in Switzerland designing timepieces for some of the most prestigious Swiss watch brands. She returned to Italy and started her own jewelry line employing many watchmaking design techniques and, in some cases, watch movements to power her designs.

Rossi unveiled two new collections at the jewelry trade fair, which opened Thursday.

The Night & Day (top image) collection is a reversible collection of jewels with two different colors. The one side uses bright multicolored designs for the day. The reverse side uses more elegant colors and designs for evening wear. She uses materials commonly used in wristwatches and on métiers d’art dials such as mother of pearl, Arizona turquoise, pink jade, lapis lazuil, aventurine, malachite, and tiger’s eye in single pendants, statement necklaces, and earrings.

Carpe Diem is a collection in which each piece contains a watch movement that allows the small star in the center to turn every second. The shape resembles timepiece dials, with several featuring gemstones surrounding on what would be the bezel. The collection is available in nine different color patterns set in 18k yellow or white gold.

Christina Alexiou

The Greek designer unveiled Space Oddity, a series of lunar inspired jewels influenced by various cultural elements surrounding the Apollo 11 moon landing, including the music, art, film, and jewelry of the time. She says she designed the collection during the pandemic lockdown with the desire to make pieces that evoked a feeling of humanity, reflecting a global experience, much like the world was enduring. For this line, the pieces depict planets adorned with gemstones, floating stars in orbit, and other space entities finished with the moon’s unique crater texture. The collection is comprised of earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces available in several color patterns with gemstones that include pink and blue sapphires, brown and white diamonds, and emeralds.

Alina Abegg

The Berlin-based designer introduced new variations of her best-selling styles, with updated color patterns and gemstones, including renditions of her popular Pfefferminz and Sticker earrings. She combined “fun” gemstones such as amethyst, chalcedony, chrysoprase, and turquoise for these new pieces. Abegg is best known for her bold, geometric, playful designs and the common theme of nostalgia seen with every collection. She launched her brand in 2016 with the goal of reducing the environmental footprint of the jewelry industry by using recycled gold in all her designs, producing her pieces locally in Germany, and adapting the slow fashion approach to her creations.
