Piece of the Week: Renna’s ‘Caspian’ Pendant
It’s a sneak peek of the newness that will be on display at the Couture Show next month.
Emerging fine jewelry brand Renna proves as much with this Couture Show sneak peek “Piece of the Week.”
New York City-based designer Renna Taher-Brown will showcase the jewel among other newness at the jewelry trade show happening June 9-12 at the Wynn Las Vegas.
New York and Las Vegas are a far cry from the brand’s genesis in Dana Point, California.
As a child, Taher-Brown found two coffee bean shells—similar to a cowrie shell—walking with her mother on Salt Creek Beach. They stowed these totems of mother-daughter memories in a safety deposit box.
Inspired by the natural treasures, Taher-Brown’s mother made gold jewelry in their likeness, selling them in southern California in the 1990s.
Renna the brand continues and expands this tradition. Coffee bean and other shells adorn station necklaces, rings, and lockets. Other ocean motifs like mermaids and seahorses, figure into the collection, too.
This “Caspian” pendant fits seamlessly into the sea-inspired array with its octopus etching. It showcases a sophisticated design process, with the sea creature engraved in rock crystal that overlays mother-of-pearl. Set in 18-karat yellow gold and accented with diamonds, its retail price is $5,132.
It is available exclusively through Threads.
