The just - launched collection of gems by Tony Duquette for Coach are fantastic with a capital F. Gutsy and bold, the designs are based on the iconic over sized classics yet well translated for frequent wear with signature Duquette elements. With a more is more approach, he was fearless with his creations. If you love estate jewelry, this tightly edited collection is for you. I have chosen some razzle-dazzle standouts I think you will fall for as much as I have.
Mixing semi precious stones, crystals, enamel and gold in a glam old-world way, the capsule collection is sure to go fast. It arrives in Coach stores February 1st, but is available online now.

Grab it! Red satin serves as the backdrop for this jewel-encrusted clutch. A field of flowers in varied crystal and semi-precious stones down the front is both charming and decadent.

The showstopper Duchess Bib Necklace with pale purple and green stones in 3 curving rows is ladylike, lovely and alluring.

The Hinged Starburst bracelet in teal enamel with the distinctive Duquette lozenge pattern and robust starburst detail is a piece I have my eye on.

Charmed, I'm sure. Eight starburst charms in malachite, lapis lazuli and crystals suspended from a chain link bracelet.

Just like the fabulous starburst Duquette light fixture for Remains, the pendant Starburst necklace has glittering gilded rays.

A gobstopper - sized cocktail ring with a faceted Malachite stone in the Empire ring will make those that don't scoop it up green with envy.

I love when cuffs have a lot going on, like in the Sunburst cuff that layers flowers and sunbursts with gen centers.

The Bouquet ring with a tight cluster of jeweled flowers is not for the timid.

New Spike Necklace goes for the gold for those that want to look fierce.

This is terrific group of designs for Coach and very distinctive from their signature look. Tony Duquette would be very pleased if he were around to see what Hutton Wilkinson has accomplished.

I agree Harrison, they are just right- not too bold not too timid.
