On The Rocks Magazine

Issue 5 Cover 1

Spring Summer 17

The new issue of On The Rocks salutes
the fearless future of jewellery, with four striking
covers celebrating modern women and the
season’s boldest jewels, photographed by Arnaud
Lajeunie and styled by Victoire Simonney.

Elsewhere in the issue, gem and jewellery dealer
extraordinaire Lee Siegelson presents a curated
selection of Art Deco and Moderne masterpieces from
his unparalleled collection, photographed by Anthony
Cotsifas; art patron and jewellery designer Christophe
de Menil invites us into her Upper East Side home
for prosecco and a lively conversation about
her incredible life in the arts; and German jewellers
Hemmerle let us in on the mixture of invention
and treasure-hunting that informs their timeless
jewels. From Paris, perennially chic designer
Aurélie Bidermann discusses her plans for Poiray,
while in London, Swiss-born designer Cora
Sheibani looks back to the genesis of her jewelled
confections. A maverick trio, comprising Anna Sui,
Cosey Fanni Tutti and Martino Gamper, share
their favourite items of jewellery.

The mood of the season is captured
in fashion stories by a host of celebrated stylists
and image-makers, including Carmen Borgonovo,
Anna Schiffel, Raquel Franco, Phil Dunlop,
Matthieu Lavanchy and Marie Zucker, to name a few.

Also in the issue: an exclusive interview with
Michele Clapton, the award-winning force behind
the costumes and jewellery on Game of Thrones;
a dissection of the safety pin as adornment, by writer
Paul Gorman; Liberace’s grand piano ring; and
treasures from a beloved Milan boutique.
