Eiseman Jewels is the ultimate destination for jewelry connoisseurs. We are home to some of the world’s most remarkable pieces of estate and heirloom jewelry — jewelry that comes with a sense of deep history and unique character that sets it apart from other pieces. It is often one-of-a-kind and always timeless.

Here are just a few of the legendary jewelry designers and artisans whose creations you can expect to see in the Eiseman Estate Collection.

Henry Dunay

henry dunay estate

Henry Dunay began his career when he started working as a jewelry apprentice in New York City at the age of 14. He worked his way up the ranks to become a master model maker and setter. In 1956, at the age of just 21, he started his own firm and quickly found fame after winning the De Beers Diamond International Award. Known for his bold designs, sensuous curves and signature finishes, Henry Dunay has solidified his position as a leading jewelry designer, artist and trendsetter in the world of fine jewelry.

Jean Mahie

Jean Mahie estate

Father and daughter-in-law design team Jean and Jacline Mazard were among the first artists to create their own work with their own brand name, Jean Mahie, and have it displayed at leading jewelry stores such as Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels. From the moment they started their company in 1970, Jacline insisted that everything she made should be one-of-a-kind. With design studios in New York and the Bahamas, the company became known for its free-form, primitive designs with hammered finishes and melted metal designs. Pieces such as the ones pictured are becoming increasingly rare, as Jacline is no longer designing.

David Webb

David Webb estate

David Webb was a self-taught jewelry designer who, in his early years, worked for several large design houses such as Tiffany and Harry Winston. He went on to found David Webb, the luxury American jewelry house, in 1948 in New York City. Bold, attention-grabbing designs and vibrant gems in 18-karat yellow gold characterize the David Webb collection.

Julius Cohen

Julius Cohen estate

Julius Cohen began his jewelry career in 1929, at the age of 16. In 1956, he established Julius Cohen Jeweler, Inc., with the belief that creating a special relationship with each customer on a personal basis was the only way to do business. The company is among America’s most celebrated and award-winning jewelry design firms of the 20th century. Julius Cohen’s unique, dedicated marketing style of visiting and servicing customers in their own homes or offices or the company’s Madison Avenue studio in New York remains the cornerstone of the business to this day.

Buccellati

Buccellati estate

Mario Buccellati opened the doors of his first jewelry boutique on Largo Santa Margherita in Milan in 1919. Today, almost 100 years later, a timeless design aesthetic and refined craftsmanship remain at the heart of the Buccellati business. The house’s distinguished Milanese heritage — along with an unyielding desire to create objects of rare beauty — has established its distinct, inimitable style.

Every piece of pre-owned jewelry at Eiseman Jewels has undergone a thorough inspection, lovingly restored to like-new conditions, and comes with a warranty guaranteeing its quality. Peruse our stunning selection of estate designs at Eiseman Jewels at NorthPark Center in Dallas.

sutra

Sutra Jewels was born of a collaboration between Arpita and Divyanshu Navlakha, the husband-and-wife team who founded the brand in 2008. The two had similar upbringings in two different regions of India. Arpita was raised in western India by a family that manufactured commercial jewelry, while Divyanshu’s specialized in traditional Indian jewelry out of northern New Delhi.

Along with her husband’s expertise in fine gem sourcing, Arpita’s limitless design creativity fuses a remarkable use of color with innovative construction. Each piece reflects the couple’s intense personality and chemistry in tangible form.

Eiseman Jewels sat down with Arpita to ask her more about the story of Sutra.

Who was your idol or muse growing up?

Growing up, I submerged myself in my father’s craft and began my obsession with gemstones. I always turned to the beautiful landscape and nature of my home country for inspiration. There was never a particular person — it was more so the world around me.

As Sutra’s sole designer, where do you draw your inspiration from?

sutraI mostly draw inspiration from either nature or architecture. Both have a special space in my heart. I have always been intrigued by flowers, birds and buildings with beautiful points and windows.

What’s one word you’d use to describe the Sutra brand?

Individualistic. It is the perfect word to describe my designs and the type of woman who wears them.

Tell us about your inspiration for your new collection.

sutra

We are focusing on the launches of our feather, butterfly and tassel collections, all of which possess great elements of movement and fluidity. The feather collection was inspired by my fond memories of peacocks wandering around my home country. The silhouette of the feathers demonstrates the ability the peacock has to spread its wings.

The butterfly collection was inspired by my recollections of butterflies fluttering about the Mumbai Gardens of Maharashtra. After the birth of my daughter, I returned with my sketchpad to the same botanical oasis I enjoyed as a child and created the depictions from memory. The majestic creature held a new, deeper meaning after I became a mother.

What is something we may not know about you or Sutra Jewels?

I am actually quite shy. My designs are my alter ego, in a way. They allow me a creative outlet to express myself.

What’s your favorite piece at the moment?

sutraOur incredible sapphire marquise cocktail ring with marquise diamonds surrounding it.

When you’re designing pieces for Sutra, what kind of woman do you envision wearing them?

She is the type of woman who decides and defines her own style. Her preferences are bold and her taste is always exceptional.

Which celebrity or public figure were you most excited to see wearing Sutra’s designs on the red carpet or to an event? Who would you love to see wear Sutra next?sutra

Having Michelle Obama wear our jewelry during her time as First Lady was an extremely high honor. We also had an incomparable fashion moment with Jennifer Lopez on the Met Gala red carpet in 2015. We would love to see Kate Middleton wear Sutra — that would be a dream.

What else can we look forward to seeing from Sutra next?

The new collections explore using multiple gems married into one harmonious, elaborate yet still very wearable piece. We are also incorporating multi-use functions such as converter pieces that maximize wearability. We recently introduced the bracelet-to-choker combination in the line.

schepps

Seaman Schepps burst onto the jewelry scene at the turn of the 20th century with designs that challenged the status quo and defined a new style for the American woman. His clientele included Coco Chanel, Katherine Hepburn, the Duchess of Windsor and members of the Du Pont, Mellon and Rockefeller families, which led him to become known as “America’s Court Jeweler.”

We sat down with Anthony Hopenhajm, owner and designer of Seaman Schepps, for an inside look at this enduring and historic brand.

The Seaman Schepps brand has a very rich history — tell us a little bit about it.

Seaman Schepps himself was born in Manhattan, the child of European immigrants. He started the company in 1904. In his lifetime, he realized the American dream of working hard and building a world-renowned brand from the ground up. He left a legacy for his children, who assumed prominent roles in the worlds of fashion and literature.

How do the current Seaman Schepps designs reflect the brand’s history?

seaman_schepps_featured_collection-3

Fine designs stand the test of time, as is evident in the jewels Seaman Schepps offers today — many of which were first created in the 40s and 50s and continue to be sought out.

Who were some of the notable figures Seaman Schepps worked with?

Seaman Schepps numbered among his clients many American First Families, from the Roosevelts to the Kennedys (including fashion icon Jackie Kennedy), as well as members of the English, Danish, Dutch and Greek royal families.

What is one thing we may not know about Seaman Schepps — the man and the brand?

Although he was originally from New York, Seaman Schepps’ first shops were in California. After experiencing limited success, he moved back to New York and opened his first shop in the 1920s around the corner from the Algonquin Hotel and its famed Round Table, where he attracted a loyal following among the stars of stage and screen.

What makes Seaman Schepps different from other designers?

Our heritage of signed and numbered designs is still in demand today and will continue to be sought out by fashionable women and collectors tomorrow.

What are your favorite pieces in the current collection? 

seaman_schepps

I love our Link Bracelet and Silhouette Earring in various woods and 18-karat gold. And the mix of precious and semi-precious stones that create a fantastic collage of color in the Rio Bracelet, Multi-Baroque Necklaces and Bubble Earrings make them favorites, too.

When you’re designing pieces, who do you envision wearing them? 

Our greatest compliment is when a mother and daughter can step into our shop and each walk out wearing one of our iconic pieces that may have been created several decades earlier.

Other than past designs, what inspires today’s Seaman Schepps pieces?

Rare original stones have been an inspiration throughout the history of the company and continue to be to this day.

What can we look forward to seeing from Seaman Schepps?

seaman_schepps

We’ve long been known as innovators for our daring use of unusual materials and combinations of stones, and we continue to bring cutting-edge original designs to our American and international clientele. This season will feature combinations of precious green Burmese jade with ruby, an ivory substitute in the form of a renewable vegetable nut, and our new home collection of hard stone clocks, frames and bowls in blue lapis lazuli, clear rock crystal and natural banded gray agate.

How would you describe the Seaman Schepps brand in one word?

Original.

pink diamond blog

Pink diamonds evoke a special sense of romance and luxury because they’re especially rare, beautiful and valuable. In fact, according to the Argyle Diamond Mine, a pink diamond can cost 20 times the price of an equivalent white diamond.

Pink diamonds are just one type of Natural Fancy Color Diamond, which are very rare. According to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), “Of the millions of diamonds mined each year, only .001 percent can qualify as fancy colors, and only a handful can achieve the top grades of Intense and Vivid.”

Pink diamonds are the second-rarest of all colored diamonds, so it’s easy to see how unique a high-quality stone of this color really is.

What Makes Pink Diamonds Pink?pink diamonds

Pink diamonds range in intensity from delicate and faint to intense and vivid, and in color from pure pink to orangey-pink, purplish-pink and brownish-pink.

It’s unclear how pink diamonds get their color, but one theory says that when the diamond is forced to the Earth’s surface, the structure of the diamond is altered, forcing the stone to absorb light differently and emit the pink hue.

Iconic Pink Diamonds

pink diamond blog final

The Daria-i-Noor: One of the best-known examples of these gems is a table-cut light pink diamond that weighs an incredible 186 carats. It has been worn by a number of kings and was part of the United Kingdom’s crown jewels until 1739, when the Persian army took it back to Iran.

The Noor-ul-Ain: Also known as “the light of the eye,” this 60-carat oval brilliant-cut pink diamond is said to have been discovered in India’s Golconda mines. It was the centerpiece in Iranian Empress Farah Pahlavi’s wedding tiara, which she wore in 1958.

The Pink Star: A rare pink diamond dubbed the Pink Star recently became the world’s most expensive gemstone to sell at auction for $71.2 million. The oval-cut, 59.6-carat jewel is the largest fancy vivid pink diamond categorized as “flawless” or “internally flawless” that the GIA has ever graded.

The Graff Pink: Another exquisite, extremely rare pink diamond to sell at auction is the Graff Pink, a 24.78-carat fancy intense pink, VVS2 clarity, emerald-cut stone which sold for $46.16 million.

The Princie Diamond: This 34.65-carat fancy intense pink diamond was sold for a whopping $39,323,750 ($1,135,000 per carat) in 2013. The diamond was originally owned by Mir Osman Ali Khan, who sold the stone to Van Cleef & Arpels for $70,000 in 1960.

Celebrity Pink Diamonds

Ben Affleck presented Jennifer Lopez with a gorgeous 6-carat pink diamond ring when he proposed. Mariah Carey’s engagement ring from Nick Cannon featured a 10.02-carat pink emerald-cut diamond, and Penelope Ann Miller donned her 3-carat pink radiant diamond ring at the 2012 Academy Awards.

Spring hasn’t even arrived yet, and the fashion world is already looking forward to fall. Pantone recently released its Fall 2017 Fashion Color Report, a semi-annual rundown of the top 10 trending colors in clothes, jewelry and accessories for the coming season. The colors serve as a touchstone throughout the season for retailers and fashionistas alike.

According to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, “the color palette for Fall 2017 leans more to warmth.” It also pairs “classic autumnal shades” like plum and navy with more unexpected hues for the season, like pale pink and bright blue. 

Here are the hottest colors for the upcoming fall season and the jewelry to wear with them.

Grenadine

unspecified

At the top of the Pantone’s list is Grenadine, a strong warm red they describe as a confident and self-assured attention-getter. When you’re wearing this stand-out color, opt for neutral diamonds or pearls. If you’re looking for something a little more eye-catching, go with a dramatic black onyx necklace or ruby ring.

Navy Peony

unnamed

Navy serves as the perfect backdrop for all kinds of gems and metals, including emeralds, jade, peridot, sapphires, citrine, topaz, turquoise, pearls, yellow gold and platinum.

Neutral Gray

unnamed-1

Rose quartz, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, turquoise, pearls and white gold all play well with Neutral Gray.

Tawny Port

unspecified-1

Citrine, emeralds and yellow gold jewelry go best with this rich, dark plum shade. 

Ballet Slipper, Butterum and Autumn Maple

Pair these soft, neutral shades with the bright colors of peridot and blue topaz for a perfectly balanced fall look.

Shaded Spruce and Golden Lime

unspecified

These beautiful greens pair stunningly with yellow gold, rubies, sapphires, pink sapphires and pink tourmaline. 

Marina

unnamed-2

Like its navy blue counterpart, Marina goes with just about everything, including pearls, pink sapphires, pink topaz, rubies, emeralds, peridot, sapphires, turquoise, yellow gold and platinum. 

Fall Wedding Jewelry

unnamed-3

If you’re looking to add a little color to your fall wedding ensemble, jewelry is the perfect place to do it.

If you’re looking for your “something blue,” try choosing something in Marina or Navy Peony by looking for sapphire, blue opal, blue topaz and turquoise.

The greens, Shaded Spruce and Golden Lime, can be incorporated with emeralds, green garnets and peridot.

Grenadine, the sizzling red shade, can be worn as ruby and garnet.

Ballet Slipper translates to opal, pearl and rose quartz, while amethyst and spinel represent Tawny Port.

The buttery browns of Butterum and Autumn Maple can be found in more unusual gems, such as citrine.

Pearls, moonstone and mother of pearl round out the offerings in Neutral Gray.

When it comes to fine jewelry, diamonds tend to get a lot of attention. But no jewelry collection is complete without a few high-quality colored gemstones — especially the “big three” gems: emeralds, rubies and sapphires.

Believe it or not, very fine gemstones can have a higher per-carat value than diamonds. That’s because they are quite rare and possess remarkable hardness and durability.

Let’s take a look at the rich history behind these three gems and pick up some styling tips from the experts at Eiseman Jewels.

unspecified-1

EMERALDS

Mankind’s love affair with emeralds stretches back thousands of years. In fact, Cleopatra was known to gift emeralds carved with her portrait to her important visitors. According to myth, emeralds bring vitality, fertility and clarity of vision in matters of love and business.

Famous Emeralds

In 1953, John F. Kennedy proposed to his future First Lady, Jacqueline Bouvier, with a 2.84-carat emerald and 2.88-carat diamond ring. The unique setting also features daintier baguette diamonds and a yellow gold setting. It is reportedly worth over $1 million.

How to Wear Emeralds

Emeralds are bold stones that generally should be worn alone. The exception is to pair your emeralds with diamonds, which won’t detract from their rich green color. Emeralds can also be worn with other emeralds, but be sure to consider scale when putting together your look. A large emerald cocktail ring worn with a large pair of emerald earrings or a statement necklace can easily look overdone. Instead, opt for a delicate pendant or small-scale earrings to balance your look.

unnamed

RUBIES

Coined the King of Gems, the ruby has been considered one of the rarest and most valuable gemstones on Earth for thousands of years. As a symbol of passion, it makes an ideal romantic gift. Rubies are traditionally given for 15th or 40th anniversaries.

Famous Rubies

One of the most famous ruby rings in history is the one given to Elizabeth Taylor by her husband, Richard Burton. Burton presented Taylor with the fabulous 8.24-carat Burmese ruby and diamond ring for Christmas in 1968. After Taylor’s death, the ring sold for over $4 million.

How to Wear Rubies

Ruby rings with smaller stones are perfect for everyday and can easily be worn with other jewelry. Larger stones are perfect for special occasions and look stunning by themselves or when paired with diamonds. Ruby eternity rings and pavé rings have an equally dramatic effect. These styles are a little easier to wear for all occasions without looking over the top. 

unspecified

SAPPHIRES

Sapphires are among the most durable naturally occurring elements in the world, scoring a 9 out of 10 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. The only substance found in nature that can scratch a sapphire is a diamond. Sapphire’s durability makes it an excellent choice for engagement rings and other jewelry worn every day.

Famous Sapphires

The most famous royal sapphire is the engagement ring given to Lady Diana Spencer by Prince Charles in 1981. Their son, Prince William, later slipped that same ring onto Kate Middleton’s finger on their engagement day in 2010. It features an 18-carat oval blue sapphire surrounded by diamonds.

How to Wear Sapphires

Diamonds and sapphires make for a stunning combination of jewels. While gorgeous on their own, they look even better when worn together, whether in the same piece of jewelry or together in the same suite.

If your birthday falls in the month of August, you’re lucky to have two birthstones: peridot and spinel. These unheralded beauties offer countless pairing options and make unique statement pieces as well as dainty accents.

PERIDOT

Peridot is one of the few gemstones that comes in a single color — a gorgeous light green unaffected by artificial light. Peridot’s hardness is similar to quartz, so it’s an excellent choice for jewelry that gets daily wear.

The stone has been featured in fine jewelry for thousands of years. The ancient Romans nicknamed peridot the “evening emerald” because its color didn’t darken at night, and it was reportedly Cleopatra’s favorite gemstone.

12222222

HOW TO WEAR PERIDOT

Peridot looks best with warm skin tones and hazel or green eyes. The bright green stone pops when worn against white, beige, black or navy and adds a touch of color to simple, streamlined ensembles.

Since peridot mirrors the vibrant color of summer leaves and grass, it’s also perfect for creating an earthy, nature-inspired look. Pair it with earth tones such as browns, greens or yellows.

Finally, mixing and matching trendy stackable peridot rings or tennis bracelets with other brightly colored gems is an easy, fun way to incorporate this stone into your wardrobe.

SPINEL

This lesser-known gemstone occurs in a range of colors, including rose pink, deep red, lavender, violet, light and dark blue, orange, yellow, brown and black. Spinel has been mined for centuries, but it was often mistaken for other gemstones. One of the most famous spinel gemstones, known by the misnomer “Black Prince’s Ruby” due to its ruby-red hue, was set into England’s state crown and housed in the Tower of London. The most desirable spinel gemstones are vivid red, cobalt blue, bright pink or bright orange.

Spinel is considered to be a soothing stone, possessing calming energy, and is recommended for those suffering from stress. It’s also used to increase physical energy, vitality and stamina.

HOW TO WEAR SPINEL

Red-hued spinel stones are most striking on cool skin tones. Spinel and other red or pink gemstones are most flattering to brown eyes and also serve as a stunning contrast to blue eyes.

Because red spinel looks so similar to ruby, it can be styled just the way you would your favorite ruby jewelry. Try pairing this common shade of spinel with black dresses, summer stripes, florals, formal gowns and jeans and tees.

Black spinel looks sophisticated and subtle when paired with other neutrals such as beiges, whites, creams and grays. If you have long hair, wear it up to show off black spinel earrings.

Any cool blue shade of spinel will pop next to warm colors such as yellow, orange and red. Blue spinel also works well with other shades of blue and navy.

July’s birthstone, the ruby, has long been considered one of the rarest and most valuable gemstones on Earth. Perhaps that’s why, until recently, conventional wisdom dictated that ruby jewelry should be worn only on special occasions.

But now, more people are coming around to the idea that because rubies are so special, they should be worn every day. We believe that pieces with special meaning should be cherished and enjoyed, and that goes especially for this vibrant, versatile gemstone.

Here are a few of our favorite ways to style ruby jewelry.

With a Floral Dress

ruby ring new

Rubies tend to hold a special place in the hearts of romantics, because they represent love, passion, courage and emotion. If you’re a romantic at heart, you can’t go wrong with a ruby ring or necklace paired with a flowery sundress and strappy heels.

With Summer Stripes

Nautical styles are timeless, especially for summer. Red rubies pop perfectly against a navy-and-white striped top, white jeans or capris and white low-top sneakers.

With a Little Black Dress

rubies

Is there anything that doesn’t look good with one? Rubies look especially dramatic in the evening with a black cocktail dress.

With Jeans and a T-shirt

Rubies are luxurious yet effortless, which makes them perfect for everyday ensembles. They even look great with jeans and a t-shirt.

With a Formal Gown or Wedding Dress

Rubies were made for big nights such as black-tie, charity events and even weddings and receptions.

Baselworld 2016

Baselworld is the most highly acclaimed watch and jewelry show in the world. It’s where the crème de la crème of the diamond, gemstone and pearl industries unite to showcase their most spectacular pieces. We at Eiseman Jewels attend in order to find those rare and unusual diamonds, gemstones and gold for our clients.

Baselworld 2016

Each year at Baselworld, we visit with the industry’s most important diamond houses and rare gemstones dealers and scout the millions of square feet of space to discover the finest new goldsmiths, pearl harvesters and designers. And we could not be more excited to share the treasures we found with you — they will begin arriving at the store in April.

IMG_3452

Baselworld is also where we first see new releases from many of our watch manufacturers. By attending, we are able to procure the new models, limited-editions and hard-to-find pieces from Rolex, Ulysse Nardin, Breitling and Louis Moinet. A significant number of the worldwide brands were present, and trends and developments in the world of timekeeping were at the forefront of the event.

 
IMG_1646

This year, Rolex presented several new Oyster models — including the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41, Oyster Perpetual Datejust 28, Oyster Perpetual PearlMaster 39 Diamond and Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master— and reintroduced the AirKing 40. But the brand’s most talked-about debut was the new version of their Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona in 904L steel with a monobloc cerachrom bezel. Look for these new models in our store in the coming months.

For more than 170 years, Ulysse Nardin has been a leader in innovative technology and creative designs and movements, and this year, the company introduced several new references. The Grand Deck demonstrates an unmistakably nautical design showcasing a technological breakthrough for the Marine Chronometer family. The new Marine Chronograph Annual Calendar created buzz for its great design and good looks, but also for its impressive mechanical achievement.

Louis Moinet recently rewrote thehistory of the chronograph with the discovery that watchmaker Louis Moinet actually invented the chronograph in 1816 — years before the world had come to believe it had been invented. At Basel, new introductions included a new reference of the Louis Moinet Memoris Chronograph Starry Night. Other Notable Models include the Moinet Oil Derrick and Derrick Gaz Tourbillon.

IMG_3444

Jewelry trends included lots of rose gold and warmer metals with white and chocolate diamonds. Long chains and layered looks were still going strong.

temple st. clair

Celebrated jewelry designer Temple St. Clair — known for her distinctive colored gemstones, crystal amulets and unique gold work — was recently awarded the jewelry industry’s highest honor: the Jewelers of America’s GEM Award for Jewelry Design. We spoke with Temple about what the award means to her, what inspires her designs and what we can expect from her upcoming collections.

temple st. clair

What does it mean to you to win the GEM Award for Jewelry Design?  

It is wonderful to be recognized for work about which I am so passionate, but the great part was for me to have the opportunity to express my gratitude for the many heads, hands and hearts that contribute to the process of delivering a true jewel.

Who is your favorite designer and how have they inspired your collections?  

One of my favorites is French designer Line Vautrin, who created very personal costume jewelry, pillboxes and cigarette cases, mirrors and other golden objects. I never tire of looking at her whimsical pieces.

What is the most playful thing in your life that brings you inspiration?  

I have what some people refer to as a child’s eye and imagination that allows me to continue, in my adult life, to believe in a bit of magic, particularly when it comes to nature.

What is something about you that we would not know about? 

Well now, after the GEM Awards, people have found out that I worked as a scuba model in the Maldives for a brief stint. Diving amidst schools of sharks can get to you after a while.

Where is the one place you haven’t been and would love to go?   

Africa! I have wanted to visit some of the big game reserves since I was small. I want to spend at least a month in South Africa, or maybe Botswana, before it’s too late. The state of our natural world breaks my heart. I want to see these creatures in their natural habitat before it’s gone.

What collection or new designs should our Eiseman customers look forward to in the new year? 

I will be presenting a new wave of the most precious colored gemstone jewels in the coming months: Bright, crystal Colombian emeralds, exceptional Australian black opals, bright clusters of multi-colored star sapphire pieces, and much more.  And stay tuned for the final part of my jewelry trilogy, The Golden Menagerie!

Congratulations to Temple on her win! You can peruse our beautiful collection of Temple St. Clair jewelry at Eiseman Jewels in Northpark Center.
