This Season's 'It' Jewelry Is...Old Jewelry? VIntage JEwelry is in high demand - for the craftsmanship, the comforting ties to the past, and, let's be honest, the bragging rights of owning something no one else has.
That thinking informed Los Angeles designer Eddie Borgo's newly launched Palms Collection of fine jewelry, which nestles rare, vintage diamonds in ornate filagrees of 18k recycled gold.
"Plenty of wonderful, unique diamonds exist on the planet and can be upcycled," said Borgo, who works with a renowned antique-diamond dealer to find one-of-a-kind stones in striking cuts, many of which today's stone-shaping technology can't achieve. "Why would we not use them if we're able to?" Borgo asks.
