Alexandra Mor jewelry: the powerfully feminine new Vows high jewelry collection

Empowering women with bold outsized jewels that are not afraid of the limelight is the ongoing mission of New York-based jeweler Alexandra Mor.

Alexandra Mor is well-known for the bold, angular lines of her outsized gemstones and show-stopping jewelry.  Five years after she launched her eponymous line and caught the attention of jewelry lovers around the world, she introduces the High Jewelry collection, which marries her signature motifs with curvy, more feminine lines and cabochon gemstones in pastel hues.

"In a way the collection represents my growth as a designer and as a woman," says the chic designer as she introduces the pieces in the equally chic surroundings of Manhattan's Viceroy Hotel. The duck egg blue of an enormous 42.00 carat Andean opal floats effortlessly on a cloud of Alexandra's signature knife-edge wire and diamond melee in one spectacular double ring, while a perfect cabochon orb of palest rose quartz is set slightly off-center and surrounded by diamonds in another. These jewels speak power in femininity.

Earrings are given the same softer treatment. The lines of a pair of dangling diamond earrings curve like a woman's waist and have inspired Alexandra to create what promises to be a spectacular bracelet in the same vein for 2015.

The designer has been hard at work all year and April 2015 will also mark the launch of her Vows by Alexandra Mor collection. With an array of beautiful diamonds, delicate snowflake and bow motifs, and the introduction of Baroque pearls, she has created pieces that are at once classic and quintessentially Mor.

With a global clientele, Alexandra says she wants to provide a collection that speaks to the bond between two people, no matter where they come from. "It means a lot to me to be part of their journey," she adds.

All this new jewelry naturally needs a home and Alexandra is excited about opening her first salon at Dorfman Jewelers in Boston this month. With a strong local following in the area, the salon will provide a showcase for her collections and a space where she can meet with bespoke clients.

The addition of new collections does nothing to dilute Alexandra's bold aesthetic, and she is more dedicated than ever to creating what she describes as "an heirloom in the making."

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
