“My mission statement from day one has been to make designs in balance and harmony with the natural world,” says Robert Lee Morris, winner of the 2007 Geoffrey Beene Award. For almost 40 years, Morris has sculpted gold, silver, brass and copper into pieces with an organic beauty. “The jewelry is as sensuous as the human body—it just happens to be made of metal.” Halle Berry (at left), Bridget Moynahan and Ashley Olsen are just a few of his celebrity fans.

|CartierSince opening in Paris 150 years ago, Cartier has stood for bold yet timeless style. The prestigious gems that were once crafted for the exclusive diamonds-for-royalty business now glitter on red carpet stars like Fergie (at left), Debra Messing and Halle Berry. The Le Baiser du Dragon collection (at left) is a cocktail of rubies, black onyx and diamonds reminiscent of the Asian-inspired line the three Cartier brothers created in the early ’20s. In recent years Cartier has also worked with celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna and Usher to design their own Love Charity bracelet. Each uniquely colored Love Charity bracelet benefits the charity organization of their choice.

|Ippolita “Being bold is a part of being fashion-forward,” says the New York-based designer, Ippolita. “It’s amusing to wear an enormous piece. Bangles are also good—they make music when you move. It’s nice to be seen and heard.” Born in Florence, Italy, this up-and-coming talent hammers out link necklaces, chains and bangles in beautiful asymmetrical shapes and sculptural forms. She tosses diamond accents and sumptuous semiprecious stones into the mix for star clients like Kate Hudson (at left), Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez.
