Even if you’re not superstitious, strange times call for magical amulets. Gina Love, the founder of gold jeweler Auvere, believes in creating your own luck. “I’m not superstitious at all. Yet, for much of this bizzare year, I’ve taken to wearing our Golden Horseshoe Diamond Necklace,” says Love, explaining the departure point for her new collection. Aptly titled Talisman, the bijouterie is instilled with extrinsic symbolic meaning, as well as intrinsic material value: “I wanted to create a collection of pieces that are iconic and recognizable,” says Love, “and because there was demand for high karat gold.”
Taking cue from age-old symbols, Talisman includes two sub-lines—All Stars and Floral Eye—that feature rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. The former is a cluster of starry jewels adorned with or without diamonds; the latter, a whimsical take on the evil eye, a quasi-universal symbol of protection. Floral Eye encapsulates a set of gender-neutral signet rings embellished with diamonds, and the entire Talisman collection is tied together with positively charged charms, including four-leaf clovers, wishbones, horseshoes, lips, and hearts.
