Could Neiman Marcus be far behind?
It couldn’t and it isn’t. Fine jewelry brand Astley Clarke – whose founding chairman, Bec Astley Clarke, was awarded an MBE (a Member of the Order of the British Empire) by Queen Elizabeth II for Services to Jewelry – recently arrived at 11 Neiman Marcus stores, including Atlanta, Boston, flagship Dallas, Los Angeles and, of course, Neiman Marcus Westchester in White Plains.
“Neiman Marcus has long been renowned for its portfolio of highly unique and intelligent fine jewelry brands,” says Clarke, who founded the line in 2006. “As a celebrated British luxury brand, we are thrilled to sit alongside their current edit and to be able to offer their customer the chance to shop some of Astley Clarke’s most iconic pieces. I am utterly delighted to be partnering with them and other key stores within the USA.”
The selections – from the Muse and Biography collections – are created at the London design studio.
Muse marries 14-karat rose, white and yellow gold with diamond pavé for a mosaic evocation. Inspired by the Indian festival of Rakhi, Biography uses diamond pavé again and gemstones for a beaded, fringed effect.
Astley Clarke pieces are also available in the U.S. at Saks Fifth Avenue and Ylang23.
