Jewelry for Fall: H. Stern

With Autumn around the corner stores have been stocking up on new merchandise and changing their selling floor to reflect the beginning of the Fall/Winter season.  How does it translate in jewelry?  H. Stern translate it correctly.  I saw the collection in their Fifth Avenue windows this week and could not walk away from it that easily.

The ‘Celtic Dune Collection’ inspired by the Celtic tribes of medieval Europe, the texture of this collection as you can see from the image below has an exquisite finish.

The next set of images is “not your grandma’s cocktail rings”.  These are super sized colored stones that look divine on any given day.  This large colored stones collection is called ‘Highlight Stars’.

The ‘Golden Stones Collection’ is simple yet breath taking.  The polished rock crystal on the necklace is about 28 carats…now, who wouldn’t want to wear such beauty?

The next two cuffs are to ‘die for’.  Both cuffs are enough to wear with your LBD or jeans and a crisp t-shirt, and still look like a million bucks.

A little history about H. Stern as seen on the company’s website:

At the beginning of the 1950s a small Brazilian jewelry company was making a name for itself in international circles. With beautiful jewels and an audacious marketing strategy for that time, the company was poised to revolutionize the traditional jewelry industry. Behind the rising brand was Hans Stern, a young German émigré, and a “carioca”* at heart. Several years earlier, in 1945, at age 22, he had founded a small gemstone trading business in Rio de Janeiro – the beginning of this success story.

Throughout more than 50 years, H.Stern has solidified its prestigious image in Brazil and abroad. In 1964, while Hans was preparing to cross the Atlantic to expand his business in Europe and the Middle East, Time magazine called him, “the king of diamonds and colored gems, capable of unveiling the personality hidden in every precious stone.”. Years later, the brand he created no longer requires formal introductions. H.Stern has become synonymous with beauty and good taste, be it in New York, Paris, Frankfurt, Rio, São Paulo, Tel Aviv, or anywhere in the world.

Today, H.Stern appears prominently in the editorial texts and photographs of the world’s most respected fashion magazines including Elle, Marie Claire, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, W and InStyle. H.Stern jewels are often seen adorning the famous necks and wrists of national and international celebrities. What could be more appropriate for the jeweler whose German surname means star?
