In all my years creating jewelry, none of my designs have acquired such a following as my eponymous Charmed Collection.

Slowly but surely gaining cult status, these iconic pieces have taken the world of jewelry design by storm making them a must have among fashionable women everywhere. Here are two of my favorite it girls wearing their lucky charms.

What started with a simple Cuore, or heart design necklace, followed by the Papillon or butterfly design, is now a full fledged collection which includes earrings, necklaces of different sizes and many different gemstone combinations. The original gems were amazonite, rose quartz, and onyx, and we slowly added all of the beautiful gemstones you see here, which include cornaline, mint quartz, rutilated quartz, mother of pearl, indigo and navy quartz, malachite, tiger eye and white agate.

This year, at the launch of my latest collection Radiant Orchid, I unveiled the newest gemstones, a departure from the classic multicolored quartz pieces. For the new additions to my Charmed Collection pieces, I stuck to the original two designs, but added two new gems: amethyst and opalose quartz. Both of these stones bring a modern elegance to the earrings and necklaces because they are clear, unlike the gems I had used in the past.

As usual they are finished with fabulous white diamonds, and the setting and chain are 18kt rose gold. Rose gold is very popular right now because of how great it looks on every skin tone. I love the combination of pink and purple, so I chose them together because they are very complementary to each other. if you are thinking how awesome these two look together, its because I designed it that way.

My jewels and designs are not just beautiful and fun to wear, they also have to have a deeper meaning, something spiritual behind their inspiration. For these pieces I chose the heart which is universal for love and the butterfly which with its team of rebirth and new life, has always been part of my designs. Together these two beautiful themes take these fabulous earrings and necklace to another level.
