Nature's Finest

The land and sea, and the creatures that inhabit them, inspire this ever-popular design category

Blooming flowers, a setting Sun, the flutter of winged creatures, twinkling dewdrops. Whether real or interpreted in diamonds and precious metals, they connect us to reality and remind us of tranquil days among nature’s delights.

Imagine yellow diamonds as sunflowers and white ones as snowflakes, suggests Soraya Cayen, designer/owner of Soraya Christie Designs, Carmel, CA. “You and your customers can follow the seasons with this jewelry and always have something fresh.”

She also suggests stocking nature-themed jewelry with round, pear and marquise diamonds, whose soft curves mimic those seen most often in nature.
