“I approached his father, Hans, 25 years ago, and he refused me, so I had to wait for his son to grow up,” Diane von Furstenberg said of Ronaldo Stern, CEO of H. Stern jewelry. Now the designer is in her sixth year of working with Stern, collaborating on decadent collections of baubles. Von Furstenberg's newest H.Stern collection, named Sutras, is inspired by 18th-century Indian mogul jewelry she collected until recently when auction prices rose.
Von Furstenberg told WWD she used the ancient technique to create the collection, which will retail from $3,200 to $19,400. The designer even made sure to have her favorite “sutras” engraved on the back of the glittering pieces, such as Love, Laughter, Freedom and Truth. The Dinae von Furstenberg and H. Stern Sutras collection hits stores in April.
