Among the showings at NYFW are the collections of smaller and emerging designers that have the potential to take the industry by storm. Last week, Heirloom by Doyle & Doyle, a curated collection of vintage and antique jewelry founded in 1998 by sister Elizabeth and Irene Pamela Doyle, showed its Fall 2015 collection, which takes its inspiration from the infinite cycle of life, and the important moments and challenges within.
Included in Hairloom’s central design motifs were the Ouroboros — or snake eating its tail — representing infinity, a never-ending circle, and Vines of Blossoming Flowers, representing the beginning of life. The collection includes statement rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces (available in sterling silver, 10K and 18K gold) focused around four main stones: diamond, turquoise, ruby & emerald.
Each piece is hand selected by Elizabeth Doyle for its rarity, craftsmanship and design beauty. According to the sisters, theirs is jewelry that is meant to be worn and enjoyed, not kept hidden away in a jewelry box.
Retail prices for Doyle & Doyle’s Heirloom collection range from about $125 to $2950.
