Old-world jewelry with modern appeal: that's the essence of Los Angeles-based line Sylva & Cie. Inspired by the asymmetry of nature and the glamour of vintage art deco jewelry, each piece features classic fine-jewelry materials — diamonds, rubies, sapphires — but is totally hand-hewn and one of a kind. "Our pieces are unequaled," says
designer Sylva Yepremian. "There isn't a company that produces jewelry the way we do."
Now, the brand's never-before-seen Resort 2013 limited-edition collection has just hit Moda Operandi. Made up of molten metals, diamond-rimmed rubies, pear-shaped sapphires, and — our favorite — smokey diamonds, each piece in the collection is like a mini work of art. See them all up close here and preorder them online now until Aug. 28.
