At the core of her collection one finds rainbow moonstone, labradorite and pave diamonds enhanced by semi-precious gemstones that are set in 18k yellow, white and rose gold. The fresh, modern simplicity of her designs along with the cut and color of her stones make a powerful statement.I am in love with Irenes rose cut Kelly green Chrysoprase and intense orange Carnelians, said Amy Logan, store manager at The Squash Blossom. They are such happy, bright colors that are a real expression of spring. Another surprise is the soft tones of Rose de France set in Rose gold, which has a more subtle feel. Her long rainbow moonstone necklaces are also amazing, a contemporary version of the classic strand of white pearls. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Neuwirths family divided their time between the beach in Venice, Calif. and the mountains of Telluride.
