Jewelry designer Laura Munder has spent a lifetime in the jewelry business. As the daughter of a renowned diamond expert, Laura quickly learned the skill of distinguishing remarkable stones and the talent to delicately mold them into works of art. Her jewelry’s extravagant use of colorful gemstones, unusual cuts and unique settings have garnered loyalty from serious collectors.
Laura’s appeal to clients has been fueled by an artistic and fashion-driven approach to designing. Stones are found all around the world. Being a long-time jewelry collector and jewelry lover herself, Laura relies heavily on her craft and design philosophy to continuously produce fresh, stylish pieces that she would want to have and wear. Her collection includes many one-of-a-kind pieces made with mandarin garnet, a rare stone available in extremely limited quantities. Other designs include the use of pale pink opal, blue opal, and peach-toned angel skin coral with diamonds. A striking addition to the collection is the use of blackened gold in combination with diamonds, mandarin garnet, sapphires and tourmaline. “The blackening of gold represents the sense of old-world style, while the introduction of the colored gemstones produces a fresh and modern look,” says Laura.
The style of the Laura Munder Fine Jewelry Collection has quickly been embraced by the national media. Women’s Wear Daily identified Laura as one of the industry’s newest designers to contribute to the rise of branded jewelry. Pieces from Laura’s collection regularly grace the editorial pages of national fashion publications such as Vogue, Town and Country, Harper’s Bazaar, W, Women’s Wear Daily, InStyle, Glamour, and The New York Times.
Hollywood has also been very good to Laura Munder, as many celebrities have been spotted around town in her designs, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Jada Pinkett Smith, Eva Mendes, Carmen Electra, Anne Hathaway, Mischa Barton, Gena Rowlands and Molly Simms.
