Las Vegas—At Kwiat, Director of Design Janice DeBell took me on a tour of some of the newest pieces displayed in their beautiful, icy-blue boutique-within-a-boutique setting. The new Fidelity collection of stacked rings and earrings should really resonate with couples. DeBell said the inspiration for criss-crossing the bands of gems three times was to symbolize its namesake quality of fidelity. (BTW: It's incredibly difficult to take legible photos of sparkling gems with my little blogging camera, which is why I'm showing you a picture of Janice instead of a close-up of the rings. She was just as much of a gem as a diamond anyway!) Stackable rings are so popular these days even beyond the wedding day and Kwiat showed additional stackable bands in a rainbow of colors that range in price from $1300 for the black diamond ring to about $13,000 for pink diamonds.
And if you'd like to appropriate a non-jewelry idea from Kwiat for your reception? They had wonderful Dove chocolates customized with personalized messages inside the silver wrapping. Mine said: "Kwiat Diamonds melt her heart." —Michelle Preli
