When you’re a little girl growing up in Brooklyn and you think of your special day, you dream of the dress (will it be lace or lots of tulle), you ponder about the venue (sleek in the city or major in Jersey) … But, one thing was always certain - you register at Fortunoff! So, you can imagine my dismay when weeks before I needed to register, Fortunoff was no more. Oye, the hutzpah! Well, that iconic brand is back doing what they always did best – fine jewelry. Fortunoff Fine Jewelry is online and will soon have brick and mortar stores. Today, I found these beauties Black Rutilated Quartz and Diamond Drop Earring ($950) set in 14K gold. The organic shape and look is a key trend we’ll be seeing a lot in holiday 2011 and going forward into 2012. Textured stones that look like they just came out of the ground is the next big thing in jewelry. But, of course, the team at Fortunoff knows that. This Brooklyn-born gal is very happy to know a retail legend has been resurrected.
