MARTIN KATZ UNVEILS PREMIER BRIDAL COLLECTION

Martin Katz, renowned for his exquisite taste and an unparalleled eye for sculpting iconic, artistic creations, debuts his premier Bridal Collection. The collection is comprised of fifteen new diamond engagement rings designed in an old world vintage style with a modern twist, using only collection quality stones in D to F color. Complementing the collection is an assortment of stunning classic diamond wedding bands and studs, elegant drop earrings, a delicate necklace and bracelets for the bride or Mother of the Bride.

 

“We have always done bridal, but this is the first time I really focused on designing a comprehensive bridal collection,” says Katz. “I was inspired to create designs that combine some of the classic engagement ring elements with details that make each piece unique to the bride herself.”

 

Unique Combinations of Diamond Cuts & Stone Sizes

 

The collection incorporates a variety of stone sizes ranging from just over one-carat to a stunning ten-carat cushion-cut diamond engagement ring. A rare five-carat carre-cut diamond stands out, along with a unique hexagonal diamond ring, and another with a setting detail Martin calls “love knots” on each side.

In true Martin Katz fashion, each piece was designed with special elements such as unique combinations of diamond cuts showcased most prominently in an emerald-cut diamond ring with trapezoid side stones.

 

Innovative Micro Pave Settings

 

His exquisite attention to detail is notable in his incomparable micro pave settings, which is used on much of the collection through halos, double layers of micro diamonds and some styles with nearly hidden diamond details. His technique employing an absence of metal allows the diamonds to appear as though they are melting into each other, making for a sensational optical illusion.

 

Architecturally Inspired Designed Diamond Engagement Ring

 

Within the collection is a dedicated ring he designed and named “The Palace”, in conjunction with his Gold Key Award Winning Jewel Suite at The New York Palace. The three-carat cushion ring has a setting with an architectural feel inspired by the Manhattan skyline seen from the suite’s windows. The setting boasts two trapezoid side diamonds and a micro pave halo surrounding the stone and incorporated throughout the band. The ring can be customized with any size center stone and comes with a variety of luxurious and uniquely selected engagement and wedding offerings from The New York Palace Hotel.

 

Newly Added Eternity Diamond Wedding Bands

 

Large emerald cut diamond eternity bands are also included, most notably a blue sapphire band that adds a brilliant pop of color and a three sided eternity band with 68 round brilliant diamonds named the “Diamond Irena”. Reflecting on his belief that the bride’s jewelry should be understated and simply compliment the dress, the Bridal Collection earrings include multiple versions of Martin’s classic Toby Stud styles, as well as a flawless pair of four-carat asscher diamond drops. A classic white diamond mini-line bracelet and elongated cushion diamond pendant close out the collection beautifully.
