Jewelry shopping should be personal, as well as exciting—we all know that there's nothing like finding that perfect piece that truly speaks to your own unique sense of style. It's easy to find relatively inexpensive pieces on a number of sites, but for one-of-a-kind, luxury jewelry, it's important to find an online retailer with experience and with a good eye for unique-but-still-stylish designs.
With Dalia Oberlander's Latest Revival, you get all of that and then some. After receiving a master's degree from the Sotheby's Institute of Art in London, Oberlander went on to working in various departments ranging from jewelry to American paintings at the auction house that is, until, she decided to bring her talents online. "I realized as a consumer myself that there wasn't an avenue for high-end or luxury one-of-a-kind or specialized jewels. Plus, I've always loved the stories and the history behind jewelry and that they hold such beautiful memories for people—I love being a part of that. All of that together led me to start Latest Revival," Oberlander says.
What separates Latest Revival apart is their balance of offerings of vintage (Hermes, Givenchy) and estate pieces with new and contemporary (and often exclusive) lines. Oberlander not only features amazing up-and-coming jewelry talent (like Noor Fares and Fernando Jorge), but her site offers exclusive lines and exclusive one-of-a-kind designs from these designers, so you'll know that your piece is truly uniquely your own. These collaborative, exclusive designs have been so successful for the site that Oberlander says that with each new line launching on Latest Revival from here on out, there will be at least one exclusive piece to Latest Revival. Coming down the pipeline are exclusive lines from Completed Works and Sabine G, both launching later this summer.
The newest exclusive piece launches today as part of Alison Lou's first collection: The 14k Gold U + Me Tree Carving Ring ($4,335; latestrevival.com). The cheeky, romantic ring (below) was chosen because "we loved that it symbolized love and infinity with the ruby and the diamond. At the same time, there is such a beautiful story with tree carvings and having something that's forever that you're wearing on your finger," Oberlander says.
