A diamond glistens in the center of a golden pansy. A chain of daisies forms a ring of white gold. Golden discs emblazoned with letters are timeless reminders of affection. These are some of the designs of Helen Ficalora. Her jewelry reflects the art and beauty of nature, and conveys the elegance of simple organic form. Living in Montauk on the Atlantic Ocean and Olympia on Puget Sound, Ficalora has always been inspired by the rhythms of the natural world and began designing jewelry more than a decade ago. Handcrafted and cast in gold, her work has an enduring grace. Ficalora's focus on technique sets her apart from other contemporary designers. Her jewelry is more than adornment, it brings to life Ficalora's philosophy of harmony with the environment. Her commitment to beauty pays tribute to the ethos of Louis Comfort Tiffany, using color and texture to luminous effect. Her pieces are delightfully unexpected. She has redesigned the traditional signet ring, bringing to it an organic twist that embodies the sophistication of her collection. Her thin rose gold bracelets, capped by delicate diamond clasps, give a fresh take on the classic bangle. And bold cabochon rings showcasing gleaming gemstones are an original interpretation. Featured in a host of television shows, movies, and magazines including Harper's Bazaar, In Style, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and Real Simple, Ficalora's jewelry offers a seamless transition from day to night. Since the launch of her line, Lucky has time and again singled out Ficalora's work on its editor's picks page, and has raved that she is an "enormously talented designer," who creates "gorgeously feminine jewelry." Her immensely popular alphabet charm necklace has been deemed a "must-have" by Harper's Bazaar, and In Style's accessories editor has called her designs "both romantic and simple." Her mastery of craftsmanship is apparent in the showcasing of precious stones whose vibrant colors shimmer in floral castings: an eternity band of French daffodils interspersed with yellow sapphires, a commitment ring of tulips of pink gold twinned with pink sapphires, rubies offset by tea roses. These are the pieces that mark life's milestones with a style and serenity unique to Helen Ficalora. This is the only Helen Ficalora boutique in the Southwest.
