With a satisfying heft and an exuberant approach to color and form, this season’s most striking jewelry have the power to elevate any look into a work of art. Set into subtly geometric collars and cuffs, emeralds and rubies appear lit from within, while decadent layers of pearls and sapphires feel just the right amount of ’80s. Heliodor, an amber-colored stone with a liquid glow, stands out in a sleek minimalist setting. Likewise, modern metals (black gold, red-tinted titanium) set off delicate rows of diamonds. Like Donald Judd’s glass and metal boxes, their impact stems from their simplicity. Rendered as test prints in an artist’s sunlit studio, these sculptural pieces command careful attention.
