It may be based in Miami, but Phillips House Fine Jewelry (a mother-daughter design duo) has firmly planted Massachusetts roots. The elder Frankel, Lisa, noted that landscapes are often an inspiration for their collections, and the latest release blends a New England touch with natural beauty. The new Lenox Collection is a nod to the Berkshires, where Lisa spent her childhood summers while her daughter Danielle took her first jewelry-making course there.
The new collection plays off certain signature Phillips House accents—faceting, prongs, asymmetrical frames, logo petal silhouettes—while introducing a unique stone combination with amazonite and tsavorite, two colors very close on the color spectrum and culled from green rolling hills and crisp blue skies. Pieces range from $1350 to $5000 and can be shopped at Saks Fifth Avenue.
