Most little girls love to poke around in their grandmother’s jewelry. But one little girl, Penny Preville, did more than play dress-up. She studied the designs. Was captivated by the intricacies. Marveled at the styles of artists from another time. Those early inspirations would form Penny’s own style years later, and continue to inspire her today.
Penny Preville, one of our featured brands in our Holiday Diamond Showcase in November, is known for her use of stars and moons, feathers, flowers, and garlands found in her necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings. While you immediately see the vintage inspiration, there’s undeniable modernism to her pieces. Penny seems to forge designs from the past seamlessly with her own twist from today. The result is a design with clean, geometric lines and polished surfaces.
You’ll always see pearls and splashes of colorful gems throughout Preville’s work, but diamonds are clearly her favorite stone. “Diamonds are the fairytale stone,” says Penny. You can tell she still holds the same spirit of wonder she had when going through her grandmother’s jewelry as a little girl.
It was this craftsmanship and attention to the smallest details that caught the eye of Jackie Kennedy. Fashion trends of the 1960s show what an influence Mrs. Kennedy had, and once she gravitated to Penny Preville, many others would follow. That attraction continues today with the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Katie Holmes, Sandra Bullock, and Oprah Winfrey spotted wearing original Penny Preville designs.
In addition to clear appreciation from celebrities, you’ve likely spotted her creations in magazines like Town & Country, InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar, and W. Many people are not only attracted to Penny’s commitment to unique designs, but also her insistence that gems, diamonds, and metals are sourced through socially and environmentally responsible means.
