Behind the Designs

The ring. From "I will" to "I do," it is, after all, the piece of jewelry that gets the most attention. But on your wedding day, other important items may take center stage—a dazzling bracelet, the right necklace, a pair of exquisite earrings—and much goes into designing them in a way that will make them unforgettable. To see just how some of these precious pieces come to life, we headed to New York's Madison Avenue and visited famed jeweler Kwiat. Here director of design Janice DeBell and Greg Kwiat, great grandson of the Kwiat founder, show us a few of their unforgettable items and tell how these pieces went from concept to completely perfect. —Elayne Fluker
