See 50+ Jewels Debuting at Couture in Las Vegas

The industry’s most influential contemporary designers are showcasing their latest jewelry designs.

Jane Taylor letter pendants
Among the newness Jane Taylor will present at the Couture show is the brand’s new letter pendants, crafted in 14-karat yellow gold and available in diamond, amethyst, sapphire, citrine, and turquoise.
Las Vegas—It’s all happening.

On Wednesday, Las Vegas jewelry market week 2023 had its soft opening, so to speak, with JCK Luxury beginning its two days of invite-only appointments preceding the main JCK show, and Couture offering a glimpse of its latest designs at its evening preview event.

Today, Couture kicks off in earnest.

With all eyes trained on Sin City, enjoy this highlight reel of the new pieces Couture designers are debuting at the jewelry trade show.


Sorellina “Capri Inlay Earrings” in 18-karat gold with chrysoprase, pink tourmaline, and diamonds
Sorellina “Capri Inlay Earrings” in 18-karat gold with chrysoprase, pink tourmaline, and diamonds ($9,900)

Every summer, the sisters behind Sorellina, Kim and Nicole Carosella, visit Capri. The influence of their ancestral homeland, Italy, is felt in new collection “Dieci,” meaning “ten” in Italian, launched just ahead of Couture to mark 10 years in business.

The collection began to take shape after the Carosellas chanced upon a parcel of Sleeping Beauty turquoise they thought perfectly matched Capri’s waters.

The Italian holiday theme extends to statement earrings, necklaces, and rings that reference sunsets, rocky beaches, and of course, the Amalfi coast’s signature lemons by way of hand-carved yellow opals. 

See Sorellina’s anniversary collection at booth 605.

Nikos Koulis “Me Necklace” in rhodium-plated 18-karat gold with 11.47 carats of princess-cut diamonds and 1.77 carats of diamond pavé ($167,160)

A stop at the Muse booth alone could easily occupy a day at Couture. Not be missed among the showroom’s roster of talents is legendary Greek designer Nikos Koulis.

For Koulis’ tradeshow newness, expect mixed metals and rhodium-plated gold that could make one momentarily forget yellow gold’s current market dominance.

On the note of reviving materials that are out of favor, Koulis’ scattered cushion-cut diamonds set on an angle are reminiscent of princess cuts. At Koulis’ hand, the shape feels edgy and compelling.
