ON POINTE: Forget tutus and toe shoes — this season, the ballet is all about jewelry. To celebrate the New York City Ballet’s 50th Anniversary at Lincoln Center, Derek Lam has teamed with fine jeweler and former dancer Jamie Wolf to create a collection inspired by choreographer and NYC Ballet’s cofounder, George Balanchine.
Each piece is designed to honor a specific aspect of his body of work — whether it be a dance move, a costume or a set. Offerings include bracelets, earrings, necklaces and rings done in rhodium-plated sterling silver with black and white diamonds, with prices ranging from $120 to $2,050.

Twenty percent of all profits will be donated to the New York City Ballet once. The collection will be available in-store at the Derek Lam boutique on Madison Avenue and at jamiewolf.com beginning on April 16.
