The New 18K Gallery Collection

Alina de Albergaria

Only seven weeks away...

We are thrilled to announce the soon to be unveiled 18K Gallery Collection, a unique bespoke jewelry line inspired by today's most prominent artists. 

Xaviera Simmons, who Elle Magazine recently named as "one of the most powerful women in art today," is the inspiration behind our first 18K Gallery Collection in this new series of artist inspired jewels, hand forged in California.

When Frederick Janka, Executive Director of The Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation, introduced me to Simmons' work I was immediately captivated by what I perceived as a quest for truth. Upon meeting her, I discovered that the artist's desire to unearth meaning as it relates to culture, spirit, and landscape, is suspended somewhere between past, present and future, a theme that runs deep in her work. That fusion of nostalgia and the unexpected has been a topic of interest to me since childhood especially as our family was uprooted so often.

Inspired by the artwork above, our Uncovered ring showcases the rich colors and textures of high karat gold and beautiful luster of white diamonds that beckon a deeper look.

The full 18K Gallery Collection will be unveiled in April with the artist who inspired it, at an exclusive event to benefit the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation,  dedicated to supporting the arts and sciences. Check back with us as we uncover the rest of the collection.
