Nancy Newberg’s New Collection is for Brides
The designer has unveiled an entire range dedicated to jewelry for wedding festivities.
In Nancy Newberg’s case, one such incident inspired a new collection.
The Los Angeles-based designer’s son was married last year. Rather than send her future daughter-in-law to shop for jewelry to wear on her big day, Newberg personally crafted a selection of pieces for her.
Newberg was no stranger to the task, having offered bespoke bridal jewelry to clients for over a decade, designing wedding bands, engagement rings and pieces for brides to wear during packed itineraries of events over multi-day wedding affairs.
“I’ve always loved the process,” Newberg said of wedding-related custom design projects.
“There is nothing more special than bringing a bit of sparkle and joy to the most memorable day in someone’s life.”
Designing jewelry for a wedding in her own family was even more meaningful.
The resulting collection showcases bezel-set diamonds, often mixing different shapes, such as long drop earrings with round-, princess-, and emerald-cut diamonds.
In addition to several drop earring variations, there are tennis necklaces, tennis bracelets, and eternity rings mixing diamond shapes, creating a more modern and clean interpretation of fine jewelry basics.
There is also a pair of diamond and pearl floral earrings that would perfectly suit the classic, romantic bride as well as chunky mixed metal cigar bands with a heart or chain motif.
The collection is crafted in platinum, 18-karat gold, and 14-karat gold with diamonds and pearls.
Available now on the designer’s website, the range sells for $2,400-$19,000.
