Ivanka Trump continues to “Rock Tradition” with the Patras collection – part of the Journey series 2013.

Patras, the second collection in the Journey series inspired by Ivanka Trump’s passion for travel and is named after the city of the same name in western Greece, is a reinvention of the artistic design of the art deco era from the 1920’s – 1960’s that was greatly influenced by Greek culture and history.

The collection features white and yellow gold, diamonds and rich, bold gemstones: sapphire, black onyx, aquamarine, African Ruby and rainbow moonstone.

Patras is the first complete color collection I have launched in fine jewelry,” said Ivanka Trump. “I have a fondness for reinventing important, legacy designs and updating them with modern twists. This year I was greatly inspired by classic Greek key shapes from the deco time period. This collection takes that classic style and uses it to create a balanced, chic line of jewelry.”

I love jewelry pieces with bold designs and colors! I also love to see fine jewelry embrace lesser known gemstones like moonstone, one of my favorite gems.

The Patras collection has great flair and flexibility. Can you imagine the Patras Octagonal Blue Sapphire Ring or any of the octagonal rings from the collection as an engagement ring? I sure can!!

Pieces from the Patras collection start at $2,000. Find the Journey series 2013 Collections – Metropolis, Patras, Toulouse and Aberdeen at Bachendorf’s in Dallas and Plano this fall.
