Daring Designs Push the Bounds of Imagination
These outside-the-box designs take advantage of fashion jewelry’s lower price point and nontraditional materials to push the bounds of what is possible. A customer who might balk at investing a diamond-level amount of funds in an avant-garde piece can breathe more easily when the bold bling they admire sparkles with CZ instead.
