Sydney Evan, the highly acclaimed fine jewelry collection was founded by Rosanne Karmes in Los Angeles in 2001, with one pave diamond horseshoe necklace. True to her personal philosophy and values, Karmes dedicated Sydney Evan to her family and named the collection after her two children Sydney and Evan, as well as her father SY. Fourteen years later, the line has grown from a handful of styles to becoming one of the most coveted fine-meets-fashion jewelry collections worldwide.
Always on the forefront of the next big trend, Karmes’ creativity infuses her love of travel, the arts and culture with her California-chic design aesthetic to ensure a constantly evolving and desirable collection. The line, made with 14 karat gold and a luxurious mix of precious and semi-precious stones, is meticulously crafted with a classic, yet whimsical sensibility.
Sydney Evan routinely adorns the most popular celebrity style icons including: Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, Diane Kruger, Zoe Saldana, Gwyneth Paltrow, Emma Stone, Bar Refaeli, Rihanna, Sofia Vergara, Salma Hayek, Miranda Kerr, Kim Kardashian and Brooklyn Decker.
Loquet London is a new British luxury jewellery concept created by Sheherazade Goldsmith with Laura Bailey that launched in June 2013.
The gold framed crystal ‘Loquet’ is designed to open and be personalised with collectable charms and birthstones. From a lucky horseshoe, a gold initial, a September sapphire or a diamond studded shooting star, each ‘Loquet’ is a unique and bespoke gift, a love letter coded in charms.
Sheherazade Goldsmith has taken a contemporary approach to the age old idea of a keepsake locket and created Loquet London in collaboration with her friend Laura Bailey.
A true labour of love, Sheherazade and Laura have developed Loquet London alongside a wealth of young creative talent and worked closely with established London jeweller Michael Ventura.
“Every ‘Loquet’ tells a story. Each charm represents an emotion, a special memory—What’s in your world? What’s in your heart?” says Sheherazade Goldsmith. Classic from a distance, original and curious close-up, a ‘Loquet’ is an eye-catching talking-point. A flash of colour, a spark of gold, a desert-island memory, a child’s birthstone. We carry our stories close to our hearts.
