Designers Create Jewelry Collection to Mark 50 Years of New York City Ballet

By Chris Boyle

nyc ballet_To celebrate New York City Ballet’s Fiftieth Anniversary at Lincoln Center, designers Derek Lam and Jamie Wolf have collaborated to create a jewelry collection inspired by legendary choreographer and New York City Ballet co-founder, George Balanchine.

Derek Lam, an avid supporter of New York City Ballet, and Jamie Wolf, a former dancer with the company and jewelry designer, share a deep appreciation for Balanchine. The acclaimed choreographer’s signature balance of clean, modern, and feminine aesthetics is a shared cornerstone of both Derek and Jamie’s design philosophies.

The inspiration for each piece in the Black and White Collection is derived from just one component of Balanchine’s body of work – a particular movement, costume, or set in a ballet. This approach has been an exciting departure in the design process for both Derek and Jamie.

nyc ballet2_Traditionally, Derek and Jamie’s respective women’s wear and jewelry collections evolve from a singular theme or central idea, however, this collection aims to capture individual elements of Balanchine’s masterpieces that make his work so identifiable. The final result is a collection that is as original and modernly cohesive as the ballets that Balanchine crafted many years ago.

The collection of bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and rings will feature rhodium-plated sterling silver with black and white diamonds. It will be sold at Derek Lam on Madison Avenue and available online at Price points range from $120 to $2,050.

Derek Lam and Jamie Wolf will donate 20% of profits from the Black and White Collection to New York City Ballet.
