Fueled by a bright mind and active imagination, Robert Procop sought to learn everything he could while working summer jobs at his father’s engineering plant, from fiber-optic to laser technology. He later expanded his knowledge to include diamonds and gemstones. It was clear that he had remarkable acumen as a gemstone trader.Robert’s first store, Diamonds on Rodeo, is where he solidified his position as a trusted and innovative jeweler, which led to his first Presidential Commission with President Ronald Reagan and a subsequent position as CEO for the Crown jeweler of the United Kingdom, Asprey & Garrard. Robert’s devotion to philanthropy has also been his passion. He collaborates with Angelina Jolie and Brooke Shields and 100% of the profits from the sales of their collections are donated to charity. The Smithsonian Institute has honored Robert & Angelina by selecting one of their necklaces to be permanently placed in the museum.→ www.RobertProcop.com
As a young Brazilian jewelry designer, Carla Amorim, created her brand in 1992. Carla’s work has three major inﬂuences from her native Brazil - Architecture, Nature, and Culture.Carla’s work is indeed contemporary, fresh, feminine, and delicate. She makes excellent use of the remarkable variety of Brazilian stones that furnish her work with radiance and color. All her pieces use 18-carat gold, mostly matte in yellow, white, rose and black and are produced in Sao Paulo, Brazil, at her own facility.→ www.CarlaAmorim.com.br
Since the debut of her eponymous brand in 1995, Colette has been pushing the boundaries of fine jewelry, creating pieces that are timeless with a contemporary fashion edge. Every design is fueled by a sense of wanderlust, influenced by the designer's French-Mexican heritage and extensive world travels.
Handcrafted in 18k gold, diamonds, and precious stones, Colette is made in Paris and Los Angeles.
Passionate about Ottoman and Art Deco architecture present in ancient Beirut, it is from this fusion that Selim draws his inspiration. His explorational character likes to confront the past with modernity and his jewels testify to heritage in perpetual movement.
The rosette motifs of the Beirut line are available in endless compositions thanks to the poetry of old-fashioned diamonds. The chiseled stars of the Istanbul skies are set with explosive-colored stones and the Kastak necklaces with their many charm's evoke the gusset watches of the dandies of the past century. The jewels of Selim Mouzannar are powerful pieces.
Known for exacting craftsmanship and exceptional wearability, each piece in the Eva Fehren line is handcrafted using 18K gold paired with only the finest precious materials such as custom-cut geometric white diamonds, grey diamonds, and opaque sapphires.
The Eva Fehren design aesthetic allows for women to build looks that are personally relevant and unique to them.
