By: Carla Little
As the trend moves away from fashion jewelry, we spoke to Houston's own famed Hollywood Jeweler, Aldo Dinelli of ICON Jewels, he focused on the rise in demi bespoke jewelry as a strong trend in today's market.
"I am getting a lot of calls this season for creating something new, something fresh. I am seeing clients spend upwards of 15k - 35k on ICON Bespoke. Building a fresh mounting for that stunning Diamond or Emerald gives the estate piece a reintroduction to its own social circle. We sit with our clients and together re design a statement piece, of course there is always that handful of Texas fashionistas that love to collect signed vintage jewelry or Texas size diamonds that will dazzle any red carpet in today's Texas circles."
Last night ICON Jewels top two picks from Golden Globes for Texas Gala Season.
Zoe Deutch spectacular look was picked as the perfect ICON look. Picked the perfect pairing for her plunging V-neck Fendi Couture gown — an eye-catching Harry Winston pendant.
