“For someone who writes about jewelry, gemstones and diamonds all day, it’s sometimes easy to be blasé about their beauty. However, Adam Neely’s jewels always turn my head. His balance of color and design, glamour and art combine to make some of the most spectacular pieces I have seen.

Vanina’s Selection: Tiffany & Co. Debuts ‘With Love, Since 1837’ Campaign (National Jeweler)

“In our podcast episode last week, Rapaport Editor in Chief Sonia Esther Soltani and Rachael Taylor discussed whether celebrities are good enough at marketing jewelry, and this article brought that conversation back to my mind. It looks like Tiffany & Co. has discovered that the jewelry itself should be the protagonist. Its latest campaign employs impactful photography and simplicity to highlight its collections.”
