Circa, the global buyer of fine jewelry, diamonds and watches from the public and trade, has again partnered with the CFDA and Lincoln Center for the CIRCA Accessories Salon this Fashion Week.
Since it kicked off last week, the Accessories Salon provided a first look at the new collections from up-and-coming CFDA-affiliated jewelry designers including Kimberly McDonald, Paul Morelli, Kara Ross and House of Waris — whose pieces constructed from hundreds of speckled, flat-cut diamonds set by hand in 18kt gold will be showcased for the remainder of the day. Ruby Kobo’s architectural necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings will occupy the Salon Wednesday on its final day, and there was also a curated exhibition of iconic estate pieces from the company’s recent purchases.
“CIRCA is proud to continue the partnership with the CFDA and Lincoln Center’s Stephanie Winston Wolkoff that began in February,” said Chris Del Gatto, chairman and chief executive of Circa. “These designers have been hand-picked by me and other industry experts as brands who exhibit innovative design and attention to quality.”
Ten percent of all purchases Circa makes from clients this Fashion Week will benefit the CFDA.
