WE FOUND OUR POT OF GOLD IN JESSICA ROBINSON JEWELRY


We Found Our Pot of Gold.
By: Erin La Rosa   |   Aug. 18, 10

Up and coming designer Jessica Robinson’s new jewelry line is proof that all that glitters is gold. And that works out well for those looking for a fabulous piece of jewelry to bling up these last few weeks of summer.
Robinson’s pieces feature luminous pyramid studs, diamond embossed lines, and classically elegant stones set in 14k gold. If you’ve watched anyone walk the red carpet recently, chances are they were sporting one of her pieces. Celebrities like Fergie, Dakota Fanning, Taylor Swift, and Anne Hathaway have all been spotted with accents of Robinson.
Sienna Miller was photographed donning Robinson’s Palm Feather Earrings, set in 14k yellow gold and embellished with glittering diamonds. While Kristen Stewart sported the Double Infinity Ring in champagne to this year’s MTV Movie Awards. The ring is worn on all four fingers and is encrusted in diamonds; think of it as a sort of chic version of brass knuckles.
Our personal favorites extend to the brass and yellow gold Angel Wing Choker, which is ideal for a night out. And the Scarab Ring, which has a glimmering finish we can already imagine looking fantastic while poolside.

VOGUE: If Wonder Woman Needed Jewelry, She Would Go to Jessica Robinson


If Wonder Woman Needed Jewelry, She Would Go to Jessica Robinson

It wasn’t until jewelry designer Jessica Robinson was playing dress up with her fiancĂ©’s daughter, Luna, that she saw the potential to amplify the scale of her pieces. It took Luna covering her tiny fingers with Robinson’s pyramid rings for her to realize how perfect one would be enlarged as an oversize Wonder Woman–worthy bracelet. Postplaytime, Robinson was at the jewelry bench in her apartment making a mold for a massive pyramid cuff.

It was seven years ago that Robinson decided to become a certified bench jeweler. “Tearing apart metal has literally—and figuratively—made me stronger,” she says of handcrafting imaginings in her dressing closet turned studio. Each geometric piece is made of gold embedded with diamonds (champagne, canary yellow, and black) or moonstones. Beyond sloping-disk rings, oval-diamond symbol pendants, and feather earrings that cover the lower ear, there are also unexpected approaches to adornment, hand pieces, multiple-finger rings, and draped-chain belts.

Past commissions include engagement rings, ornate crowns, and goddess headpieces. Robinson has also designed cufflinks for her friend Salman Rushdie, each interchangeable link the cover of one of his novels (every birthday another edition is added) and a monkey-relief necklace for a certain swashbuckling movie star. Soon there will be bejeweled parlor games and urns. And all of it will follow her strict house rule: “Don’t go to your bench until you have something to create, and you’re convinced that no one else can create it but you.”
