Doves Expands Little Bird Collection; New Styles Will Debut In Las Vegas

Great Neck, NY--Little Bird, the millennial-targeted bridal line from Doves by Doron Paloma, is set to debut hundreds of new rings at the Luxury and JCK shows. Since its launch in Las Vegas last year, the line has expanded into retail stores across the country who are seeking a footprint into the ever-growing market of customers who want something different than the usual bridal style. Little Bird offers touches such as asymmetrical settings or the option for a colored stone center, both looks that resonate well with Millennials seeking something unique.

“More and more of our retail partners are seeing the need to fill this important niche in the bridal market. We feel that Little Bird is the perfect fit, with sellable price points, point of sale displays, and a powerful suite of marketing and social media,” says Doron Paloma, chief designer. 

The entire Little Bird collection can be seen at the Doves booth at Luxury and JCK, Salon LUX 121. To learn more about the line and make an appointment, visit


Kirk Kara Wins 10th Consecutive Jewelers’ Choice Award

Los Angeles, CA—Fourth-generation jeweler Kirk Kara has made history as the first brand to win a JCK Jewelers’ Choice Award 10 years in a row. 2017 marks the company’s 10th consecutive win in the Best Bridal Design category, a distinction that no other designer can claim.

A double halo engagement ring from the Pirouetta Collection (Style #K172C8R) took the coveted top spot in the mid-priced bridal category ($5001-10,000 retail). Two other Kirk Kara rings were named as finalists: Lori Collection Style #K283E7X5 and #K283-B, and Pirouetta Collection Style #K274LWR. Designs from the Lori and Pirouetta collections have been past Jewelers’ Choice Award winners as well.

“Jewelry design is a true labor of love, and it’s a blessing to share this gift with my family,” says designer Kirk Kara who, like his father and grandfather before him, has spent his life perfecting his craft, and works alongside daughters Angela and Grace today. “To be recognized by your most respected peers for 10 years straight is a very special honor that we are humbled to receive again.”

All Kirk Kara pieces feature signature handcrafted details and the designs that were designated as award winners each year also are the firm’s best sellers. Kirk Kara will be presenting the winners, along with an extensive selection of additional designs, at Luxury by JCK, Salon LUX1120. To make an appointment, contact or call (800) 874-0181.
