Harry Kotlar To Open First Boutique At New Shreve & Co. Store
While the Harry Kotlar brand is available at select retailers already, the new boutique will present an opportunity to articulate the brand’s story fully. It will house an expanded collection of Harry Kotlar’s hallmark design, the Artisan Pave, and its proprietary Kotlar Cushion diamond cut. Rare diamonds and jewelry from the brand’s vault, as well as its more contemporary Kotlar 1948 collection will round out the offerings.
“I believe heritage, innovation, and quality are still the defining traits of luxury for the most discerning consumers,” says brand director Czarah Cabrera. “Harry Kotlar will never depart from real, authentic artisan tools and methods of hand-forging, hand-carving, and hand-finishing pieces.”

The grand opening of the new Shreve & Co. flagship is December 14; the store is located at 150 Post St. in San Francisco.
Evocatueur Founder Featured In News Article
Norwalk, CT—Barbara Ross-Innamorati, founded her jewelry line, Evocateur, when she saw a void in the market for attractive gold cuff bracelets that sat in the price space between expensive all-gold cuff bracelets that were out of reach for many consumers, and cheap plated costume jewelry that wears out.
Inspired by antiquity and art and a long-ago trip to the National Gallery in London, UK, she launched a line of cuffs made with a distinct gold-leaf, and sterling silver leaf wrapping process. The line, which mostly retails between $150 and $440, was launched in 2009 and was the subject of a feature article in The Hour, the local news site for the Norwalk, CT area.
Evocateur cuffs are created with a hand-gilded gold-leaf technique. The brand also collaborated with Harper’s Bazaar to transform some of the magazine’s iconic early 1900s Erte cover designs into jewelry. Image: thehour.com
