Irene Neuwirth‘s namesake company has evolved into a leading jewelry brand over the last decade. Her jewelry, worn by a discerning clientele (Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, to name an illustrious few) is modern, sophisticated, and timeless. Neuwirth, an award-winning Los Angeles-based designer, is not just talented – she’s a caring and concerned humanitarian. She is introducing a limited collection of pieces featuring Australian opals set in 18-karat rose gold. Her signature earrings, rings, and necklaces, dazzling with the refractive essence of opals, reflect her reverence to nature. Her collection will debut this week at two of Hawaii’s premiere boutiques (Seaside Luxe and 22 Knots). A portion of the proceeds from the sales at her trunk show – at which she will make a personal appearance – will benefit Save the Children in an effort to aid those in Japan following the recent devastating events. Hawaii snobs, take the opportunity to pick up some softly stunning stones with a vital purpose.
