New York–based jeweler Misahara has opened a boutique in The Shops at the Plaza Hotel. In addition to the pieces it’s already known for, the brand will be offering its 18-karat gold Unity line and expanded Petal collection, including cuffs and lariats made with aventurines, tourmalines, carnelians and jade—all blended with white diamonds and colored sapphires.
“Misahara knows how to take traditional forms and mix in modern-day edges,” says founder Lepa Galeb-Roskopp. The designer, who grew up in a traditional Balkan household, didn’t find her calling right away; it took years for her to follow her passion for jewelry making. “For me, it’s about telling a story,” she adds. “It’s not about following trends.”
