NEW YORK — Bettina Duncan, who’s best known for her diminutive silver jewelry, is expanding her range with a new collection in 14-karat gold.
The new line will feature delicate castings accented by colored gemstones and diamonds, reminiscent of the ones Duncan has used in silver and inspired by 19th-century Italian and Gothic heraldic motifs. The collection conveys both romantic and chivalrous sentiments, yet remains distinctly feminine.
Wholesale prices for the gold collection range from $110 to $500 for earrings, $190 to $2,000 for necklaces and $95 to $1,500 for rings. The firm also offers the line in 18-karat gold. Duncan projected first-year sales of between $300,000 and $500,000 for the collection, which is represented in New York by Fragments.
