Jewelry Designer Barry Cord To Unveil New Collection During QVC Designer Gallery Event

January 8, 2011

Jewelry designer Barry Cord has already done work for QVC, but this Sunday he will debut a new collection on the Q, one that was unfortunately described as “Wearable Whimsy.”

The collection will premiere on QVC’s Sterling Designer Gallery Event, which we’ve been waiting for like a junkie looking for a fix.

Here’s what the crack QVC PR department had to say Friday about Cord’s new “ideas,” as host Lisa Robertson would say.

Barry Cord’s designs can be found everywhere from the collections of world leaders and Hollywood’s elite to the world’s most celebrated art museums. Now, the award-winning designer is scheduled to debut a timeless, whimsical collection on QVC Sunday, Jan. 9 at 6 PM.”

Inspired by his fascinating life experiences, frequent travels and the beauty of nature, this artist and award-winning designer has created a distinctive jewelry collection in sterling silver and sterling with 14K gold accents. Cord remains true to his artistic vision, seeking inspiration from the world around him and utilizing old-world craftsmanship to bring that vision to life with this collection of rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and pendant.

“We are thrilled to add the unique aesthetic of Barry Cord’s newest pieces to our designer portfolio,” Diane Paccione, QVC’s vice president of merchandising, said in a canned statement. “His uniquely detailed, fanciful designs are sure to resonate with our customers.”

QVC’s Sterling Designer Gallery event will kick off at 11 p.m. Saturday.

The 25-hour event will feature “accessible pieces” from designers including Michael Dawkins, Judith Ripka and many more. The highlights, according to QVC, include a signed limited edition Dawkins Sterling Petal Cuff, Sterling Pear Shaped Champagne Quartz Earrings from Ripka and the introduction of black diamond pieces from Dweck Diamonds, a luxurious line of diamond jewelry by acclaimed designer Stephen Dweck.

The Barry Cord Collections will range in price from $65 to $400.

Model and uptown girl Christie Brinkley is bringing her latest collection of nature-inspired fine jewelry to QVC, debuting today, Sunday. at 9 p.m.

QVC promises that Brinkley will give viewers an inside look at the inspiration for the Christie Brinkley Jewelry Collection.

“This line is a celebration of the all the things I love,” the beautiful blonde 50-something said in a canned statement. “I’m excited to work with QVC to share these bright and beautiful pieces with so many women at such affordable prices.”

Each Brinkley piece that appears on QVC was created especially for QVC. Brinkley’s ultra-feminine bracelets, cocktail rings and dangle earrings feature luminous gemstones such as Sky Blue Topaz and Moonstone, reminiscent of the ocean waves near her Hamptons home.

Flowers are also an echoing theme with a braided leather bracelet updated with a sterling rosette, a blue lace agate statement necklace with floral accents and a flower bouquet ring and earrings. According to QVC’s press release, Brinkley believes that every day is an occasion to celebrate and each piece is designed to be a visual reminder of this philosophy.

“Christie’s unique aesthetic will resonate with our viewers,” said Diane Paccione, QVC vice president of merchandising. “As one of the most recognizable and enduring style icons, she is a fantastic addition to our ever-growing list of celebrity designers.”
