Good morning, my darlings!
I have something colorful and exciting for you to kick off the first new post of 2016 (the “best of” posts were fun, but they didn’t exaaactly count, did they?). You already know and love Todd Reed‘s work – I’ve featured it several times before. Well, I have something new to show you: two Todd Reed tourmaline pieces.
As you know from when we’ve looked at Todd’s work before, he usually works in gold and diamonds. Wonderful, spectacular gold and diamonds – hard to complain about – but when I learned he was doing something new, I knew I needed to show you. Because: look at the colors!
Todd Reed’s signature style remains strongly in evidence, but the bright tourmalines – in pink, blue, and ultra-rare blue-green Paraiba – make subtle vivid magic out of the trademark gold settings, while the floating bubbles of bezel set diamonds keep the overall look light.
Here’s the necklace. I love that while it’s clearly related to the necklace, the elements aren’t identical. Here, the bezel-set diamonds cluster around each tourmaline in its own thick gold setting, forming an ombre river of gradually changing tourmaline elements.
Here it is in action! I love how substantial it is.
When I reached out to the fabulous Liz, Todd Reed’s PR Goddess, she was kind enough to send me not only images of the final Todd Reed tourmaline pieces, but photos of the process that brought the necklace to life. It’s too cool not to share.
Here are some of the behind-the-scenes shots.
What do you think of these Todd Reed tourmaline pieces, my dears? Do you prefer the usual diamond-only color scheme, or are you swooning for these mints and pinks like I am?
Thanks again to Liz for the fabulous photos! For more information about these Todd Reed tourmaline pieces, please contact Todd Reed.
