It’s no surprise that London-based Sarah Ho’s jewelry is a darkly glamorous affair: Her mother, Suki Potier, was a major figure on the social scene in the Sixties (dating the Rolling Stones’ Brian Jones) and her grandfather, Stanley Ho, is best known as Hong Kong’s casino king. The 29-year-old designer’s line, SHo Fine Jewelry, includes black gold earrings in graphic shapes set with black pearls, some laced with delicate black diamond chains. There are also playing card pendants in 18-karat yellow, black and red gold. Prices start at $402 for a silver playing card necklace and climb up to $24,000 for an 18-karat gold and pavé diamond Swirl necklace (+44.207.383.2772).
