With his third collection, which he showed for the first time during Paris couture week, Wilfredo Rosado is continuing his mission to put the fun into fine jewelry. For this lineup the New York-based designer offered two very distinct looks. One set featured leather flowers made by Maison Lemarié — manufacturer of Chanel’s famous camellias — surrounded and centered by diamonds. The stone at the heart of each blossom can be unscrewed and replaced with different-colored leather petals — white, yellow, black or any other hue made to order. There’s also a necklace, tiara-style headband, cuff, earrings, brooch and large ring, all in the same flower motifs.

Rosado’s second series, both angular and imposing, was made up of emeralds and diamonds set in black rhodium gold mesh.
