NEW YORK. Suzanne Kalandjian of Suzanne Kalan knows a good thing when she sees it. So, when the northern California-based designer debuted her Fireworks collection of diamond jewelry (a variant of her Vitrine offerings) six years ago and saw how quickly it accumulated admirers, she decided to keep it going with add-ons. Enter her new Cascade Fireworks and Rainbow Sapphire Fireworks collections.

Both landed in stores this fall, just in time for the holidays. All pieces feature her signature style of scattered-set baguette-cut gems—diamonds in Cascade and multicolored sapphires in Rainbow—that are now the subject of myriad knockoffs, or so-called “inspired” styles. [Note: there’s nothing inspiring about stealing original ideas from an artist, but that’s a topic for another day.]

What’s new in the Cascade version of Fireworks is movement by way of playful dangling charms on layered styles. While the designer “changed the perception of how baguette diamonds were traditionally used” in Fireworks, she explains, she took the idea to another level by making the offset stones mobile. “Baguettes are stunning with movement and can be delicate while making a statement,” she adds.

In Rainbow Sapphire Fireworks, meanwhile, the looks are—as the name suggests—baguette cuts of colored sapphires. Not surprisingly, they, too, are a hit. “Customers love the happy colors,” says Kalandjian. Plus, sapphires are rarer than many other gems (think amethyst) so that equates to pieces with greater inherent value as well as durability—sapphires are a 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness. Pretty, strong, and precious? Sign us up, and keep the designs coming.

No. 5: Kothari Design has been unveiling these incredible one-of-a-kinds that just stay with you long after the show has ended. They appreciate all the funky hard stones like agate that many shy away from and set little diamonds or other gems into them. I’ll try not to drool on their cases, but you should get to them early to be safe.

No. 4: Brooke Gregson has a mind-blowing eye for gemstones. Her organic-looking and seemingly folk-art-inspired styles are beyond yummy. I could eat the color combinations she puts together! And the cuts she finds, like these tourmaline hearts? #canthandleit .

No. 3: Nikos Koulis is a Greek jewelry designer with a striking geometric aesthetic. He has a masterful way with diamonds, emeralds, and black enamel, as is evident in this pair of perfectly mismatched earrings. Also dumbfounding: his patented translucent enamel. WHAAAT??

No. 2: I’m dying to see what Coomi Bhasin unveils this year—it will be tough to follow up on her Barcelona-inspired jewels from 2017. Coomi’s gorgeous 24k gold designs celebrate history, architecture, and her Indian heritage. Her one-of-a-kinds are the stuff of dreams.

No. 1: I can’t wait to see this lady’s beautiful #baguettes! Suzanne originated the #scatteredsetting with this chic stone cut, though many now copy her. When you see similar looks, remember the #original #theoriginal.
