Phoenix, AZ—Social media channels were all abuzz with Centurion 2020 designs and styles thanks to the Influencers team that hit the Centurion Show floor in search of sparkles. Last week influencer Kyle Roderick of Bijoux Review shared her glimpse into Centurion through her Forbes article. This week, head on over to Instagram to see what the Influencer team deemed gorgeous and noteworthy throughout the Centurion Show. But first, a bit about our Influencers team:
Kyle Roderick is editor-in-chief of BIJOUXreview.com, a global high luxury jewelry report that illuminates and promotes the world's best haute luxe jewelry. For BIJOUXreview's EYE ON video series, Roderick showcases design-driven, exquisitely crafted, limited-edition or one-of-a-kind jewels, plus the fascinating people who design, create, market and exhibit them.
Roderick also is the author of a new book, titled BEJEWELED: The World of Ethical Jewelry, published by Rizzoli in 2019.
French-born Severine Ferrari moved to the United States early in her career, but her French sense of style and romance continues to both influence her editorial vision and voice, and allows her to forecast future design trends before they reach the U.S. market. The founder of Engagement 101, the first multi-media platform dedicated to couples planning their engagement, Ferrari was the 2017 winner of the Women’s Jewelry Association Awards of Excellence in the editorial category. In 2018, she launched the Propose Too initiative, to advocate for women to take the proposal lead in a relationship--or propose back.
Benjamin Guttery, G.G., A.J.P., is a brand advocate and consultant, a jewelry storyteller, and a self-proclaimed "gem nerd." The founder and curator of Third Coast Gems, he spent 13 years selling fine jewelry in both major and independent jewelry stores in Texas. A frequent contributor to both consumer and trade media, his @ThirdCoastGems account on Instagram has amassed a major following including some jewelry-loving celebrities like Kate Walsh, Alanis Morissette, Usher, & Kelis.
In addition to sharing gorgeous snaps of gems and jewels on social media, Guttery also teaches retailers and designers how to master it for maximum benefit.
Manon Crespi’s understanding of the allure of luxury developed over her years working as a fashion model and on-air talent. After working for years with international clothing designers and brands, iconic beauty brands, high-end retailers, and fine jewelry designers, she dove deeper into the jewelry industry in 2006, by developing and launching a jewelry collection of her own, with a colleague. Since then, she has provided branding and marketing expertise to jewelry companies until discovering her own true passion of writing about luxury jewelry. Her “Rare & Beautiful” articles are a monthly feature highlighting rare and beautiful jewelry and the designers behind it, can be read on elitetraveler.com.
