)-- Carl Blackburn’s newest stop in his world-wide tour of fine jewelry fairs is JIS Miami, October 21-24. The revivalist designer, renowned for his intricately handcrafted gold and platinum jewelry, has been crisscrossing the globe in recent months to showcase his 2007 Neo Classics™ and Neo Renaissance™ couture collections. “We are very pleased to be a part of the JIS Show this year,” says Blackburn. “The visitors there are always passionate about discovering new jewelry collections that will thrill their customers. Our Neo Classics™ and Neo Renaissance™ collections are just that kind of jewelry.”
Described by Bill Pearlman of Pearlman’s Jewelers as, “Across the line the most beautiful collection of wedding bands and accessories I've seen,” the Neo Classics™ collection is said to have bridged the gap between time-honored jewelry design and the contemporary joie de vivre of the Modern woman. Crafted in various combinations of platinum and 18K white, yellow, and rose gold, each diamond-set piece displays the Old World hallmarks that have come to symbolize the Carl Blackburn brand. The designer’s signature hand-milgraining, hand-engraving, and fine filigree work remain, and often are harmonized by a lush honey-comb mesh.
Blending Gothic, Baroque, and Renaissance influences with floral symmetry and a rich contemporary look, Blackburn has won continued praise for his boldly iconic Neo Renaissance™ collection. Crafted in sterling silver and solid 18k gold, these revivalist rings, cufflinks, and pendant necklaces are accented by brilliant, hand-set diamonds. Stunning heart and dagger insignias, enchanting fleur de lis crests, and other royal ensigns recall a regal heritage and celebrate the unique, free spirit of the wearer. The collection’s lifetime replacement guarantee and modest average retail price of $350 has been warmly welcomed by US jewelers, who have been experiencing a country-wide slump in sales throughout 2006.
JIS Miami celebrates its 28th anniversary this year, the show having become the largest independent jewelry trade fair in the Western Hemisphere. Exhibiting the latest collections of many of the world’s finest jewelry designers, the show is a must-see for thousands of fine jewelers in the , Caribbean, and South America.
