“Jewelry is the ultimate gift in metal,” says Michael Aram, famous for his iconic handmade metal houseware that in the last decade has become a favorite for gifting.
He may soon be just as recognized for his jewelry. “I’ve been working fast and furiously on new collections,” he told WWD during a stop to meet customers in Dubai last week at Bloomingdale's in Dubai Mall. Aram was heading off to India and Bangkok where he'll be working on the new collection, which he will present at The Couture Show in Las Vegas in June.
