Gold Vermeil and Inlaid Stingray Gems

Gold Vermeil and Inlaid Stingray Gems

THIS JUST IN: Deco inspired jewelry from Collette Ishiyama. “Emerald City,” the initial collection from the designer, is derived from her interest in “Egyptian burial jewels, samurai warriors and the omnipresent sliver of the Chrysler Building.” Hand carved and cast in either gold or white brass, these pieces are also inlaid with Black Stingray for a dark but clean sense of luxury.
