The stars have always captured man's imagination, not only because we can see them so far away but also because of their brilliance and the constellations in the sky. Various cultures from Babylonian to Greco-Roman and Chinese have created many stories around these constellations, which have evolved into astrological signs many people follow today. These bright lights in the sky are an ideal inspiration for creating cosmic beauty on earth. David Yurman is usually best known for sterling silver designs, but its Starburst collection released this year has a brilliant display of the constellations. The necklace features pave diamonds set in 18k gold to create a glittering effect. There are Starburst pendants, bracelets, rings and double-drop earrings. Tiffany & Co has the Tiffany star pendant that looks like two four-pointed stars superimposed on one another. The eight-point star pendant is set in platinum with a diamond-accented platinum chain. Another stunning piece is the Tiffany black jade bracelet, with large and small stars in diamonds and white gold contrasting with the dark night sky of the black jade. It surely makes a strong piece for evening wear evoking mystery and seductiveness. Montblanc has its own signature star as its emblem and now has its own diamond cut for it. The Montblanc Cabochon is reminiscent of the snowy peak on Europe's highest mountain and is now featured in a variety of semi-precious stones from rose quarts and rhodolite garnet to carnelian and aquamarine. The collection features rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces. Men also get the star treatment with hard stones that reflect masculinity, strength and confidence. Stainless steel cufflinks feature deep black onyx and sodalith, a stone with grey and beige inclusions. For a softer look, the discerning man can opt for cufflinks in either quartz crystal or rose quartz, both stones recognised for bringing peace of mind and inner balance. The glowing orb of the sun was Larry Jewelry's inspiration for its Forevermark diamond jewellery collection. The elegant diamond pendant, set with a 1.13-carat diamond encircled by smaller round diamonds, evokes the image of radiating sunlight on a summer lawn. The matching earrings are just as luminous, weighing 1.67 carats. The collection also features 1.37-carat diamond droplet earrings, while the ring has a one-carat Forevermark diamond surrounded by 18 smaller diamonds totalling 1.92 carats and a pave ring body for a dazzling display.
