Soldiering on with Alex the Great’s jewelry
When it comes to Mother’s Day, it’s all flowers, cards, chocolates, jewelry, perfume and dining out. But when Father’s Day rolls around it’s more meh. A cookout here. A tie there.
Well, no more. WAG pulls out all the stops this year for a truly spectacular Dad’s Day, filled with marvelously masculine Alex Soldier jewelry, intense action at the Greenwich Polo Club, a father-son tale by a Greenwich author and some helpful tips for those special fathers of special needs children.
We begin, though, with a WAG fave – Alex Soldier. WAG first introduced you to the jeweler and his sculptural, textured works two years ago http://www.wagmag.com/onward-alex-soldier/. What’s so fantastic about Alex’s pieces is the way he combines precious stones (rubies and diamonds) with intricate metalwork. His square lava rings, initial rings and imaginative takes on the dog tag with zodiac designs and serpents offer Dads and their gift-givers some terrific alternatives to the traditional wristwatch. But, ladies, no fair keeping these for yourselves.
Alex Soldier’s creations are available at the Alex Soldier Gallery, Neiman Marcus, Sak’s Fifth Avenue and fine boutiques. For more, visit alexsoldier.com. – Georgette Gouveia
