With a strapline that confidently proclaims 'Jewels. Like no other', you can always expect something extraordinary from jewellery designer Martin Katz.

And his latest launch, the New York Collection is no exception. A mesmerising line of fine jewellery inspired by the unmistakable skyline of the Big Apple, the collection combines timeless elegance with contemporary aesthetics.

Taking inspiration from the sophistication and taste for which New Yorkers are renowned, Katz has placed bold gems in geometric settings, including circles and rectangles, in an ode to the city's landmark spots.

Standout pieces include a pair of diamond tassel earrings inspired by the Empire State building, a black opal ring that evokes romantic summers in the city and a cushion rose-cut diamond ring that is reminiscent of the iconic ice rink at the Rockefeller Centre.

Launched to mark the opening of the Martin Katz Jewel Suite at the New York Palace Hotel, the designer was motivated to create his new collection of jewels by the urban surroundings seen from the luxurious 53rd floor suite. Stretching over three levels, the 5,000sq ft suite includes a 10-seater dining room, a private elevator, roof terrace and de´cor inspired by precious gemstones.

"After spending so much time designing the suite, I was inspired by the views from my windows and wanted to design a collection that reflects the incredible architecture, the colours of the city that you don't fully experience when on the ground, and the overall elegance of New York," says Katz of his latest collection.

The New York Collection is available exclusively from the Martin Katz boutique in Beverly Hills and at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City.
