Day 3 in Las Vegas starts out with a glowing golden circle in the sky, and glowing golden circles at Gurhan in the form of these stunning 24k gold hammered disc earrings.
Gurhan is best known for his mastery of pure 24k gold, but several years back, he started mixing in sterling silver, and the result was incredibly fun and versatile. Below, Zoey stacks a Gurhan bracelet made of sterling silver, 24k gold, druzy quartz, and onyx with her platinum link Alex Sepkus bracelet.
Gurhan also does stunning work with gemstones, particularly opals. This incredible necklace of opal, kyanite, blue topaz, and moss aqua set in 24k gold came home to Seattle with us!
The next stop is at Harry Kotlar, another 3rd generation family-owned business like Fox's. Kotlar is best known for their signature - and incredibly beautiful - Kotlar cushion diamond, but this lovely oval really caught our eye.
Kotlar is also known for their artisan pave and meticulous craftsmanship. So many engagement rings to choose from!
We can't resist snapping a few pictures to remember these classic pendants by when we are back home.
Our last appointment of the day is with our friend Ray Griffiths. We had the pleasure of having Ray at our store a few months ago, and he is such a wonderful person with a great sense of humor. He couldn't resist getting silly with Zoey's baby bump!
We couldn't resist this row of beautiful blues! Aren't the tassels fun?
We love all of Ray's work, but turquoise mixed with his signature 18k yellow gold crownwork is such an eye-catching combination.
The last event of the day is the Couture awards, to honor the pieces of jewelry from the show that are particularly noteworthy in design and workmanship.
We head home early to compare notes and rest up for our last day at the show.Continue reading
