Need a jewelry refresh? Graff Diamonds director Eve Rogers shares how to wear three of this season's standouts.
At Graff’s Oak Street boutique, Eve Rogers oversees the salon’s stunning collection of baubles, like the 10.15 carat diamond and 4.14 carat ruby Butterfly Medallion necklace.
It seems as though the expression “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” was coined with Eve Rogers in mind. After all, the graduate gemologist has immersed herself in the world of fine jewels, selling, appraising, and curating collections throughout her career, first at Sotheby’s and now as the Chicago director of Graff Diamonds. Rogers—who has an incredibly keen eye for both jewelry and fashion—guides us through this season’s show-stopping baubles and how to style them.
“Our butterfly collection is both chic and whimsical—perfect for spring,” she says. Among the collection’s sparkling standouts is the 10.15 carat diamond and 4.14 carat ruby Butterfly Medallion necklace. “I love it paired with a white blouse, unbuttoned at the top.”
Rogers calls the white-diamond Halo earrings “a new take on the diamond stud.” Simple and wearable, this 4.10 carat staple is ideal for everyday.
The 46.09 carat sapphire and 10.49 carat diamond Line bracelet features stunning stones inset with white diamonds that help he sapphires pop, Rogers says. Make this the focal point of the ensemble for your next gala. She notes that “it would pair beautifully with a silver or navy sleeveless gown.” Prices available upon request. Graff Chicago, 103 E. Oak St., 312-604-1000
