I have long been a fan of Ippolita jewelry, particularly the line’s bright, rich selection of turquoise. Originally from the hills above Florence, Italy, Ippolita first launched her jewelry line at Bergdorf Goodman in 1999. Immersed in Renaissance art and architecture as a child, the designer’s mother was an American artist and her father an Italian intellectual. Ippolita spent months mixing her particular shade of 18k gold which is said to flatter every skin tone. Most impressive to me is the fact that every piece is made by hand, giving each a distinct sculptural look. Clearly this jewelry designer is a true artist! To see Ippolita’s full collection visit her site HERE.
