Todd Reed’s pieces are characterized by his frequent use of raw diamonds, a passion that sets the tone for his overarching aesthetic. He uses only recycled gold and ethically responsible and eco-friendly sourced stones.
Many jewelers have fans, but Todd Reed practically has a cult following. I recently had the honor of meeting Mr. Reed at an I Gorman Jewelers event in DC and I immediately understood: his articulate enthusiasm for the raw beauty of the earth’s bounty made his designs even more beautiful. Once you see his distinctive, edgy look, you’ll understand too.
I thought I’d start with one of my favorite pieces. This wide gold and diamond cuff – although simple – is a breathtaking balance of opposites. The matte gold and the sparkling diamonds, the clean edges and the textured surface, the boldness of the cuff with the delicacy of the sprinkling of stones. It’s impossibly elegant and subtle at the same time.
Let’s see some more.
These are some sexy earrings. Dark and sultry, with a devil-may-care smattering of white and cognac diamonds; these beauties make a serious statement.
Here’s a selection of Todd Reed eternity bands. These rings would be amazing individually, in a stack, or as a wedding band. These are all via Greewich Jewelers.
How are these for unusual diamond earrings? Featuring colored raw diamonds in gold, this is nor your average earwear. Rich in both texture and color. They’re subtle, but the dark ripples of the stones invite you to stare forever.
That’s me trying on a couple of my favorites at the I Gorman event. These pieces had the most amazing presence, I can’t even tell you. They were smooth and substantial and I loved both their heft and the rough power of the unique stones.
