Diamonds and star-shaped jewelry are a perfect match – both twinkling and hypnotic. No wonder modern jewelry designers are enchanted.

Brazilian jeweler H.Stern has been inspired by the estrela since its founding over 70 years ago. For its anniversary, H.Stern released the Genesis collection – a modern take on its famous stars. Dior Fine Jewelry designer Victoire de Castellane presented a collection inspired by Versailles. The Salon d’Apollon brooch features over 700 diamonds. Irreverent British jeweler Solange Azagury-Partridge is known for her eclectic collections, and we love the tough spin she puts on the classic star in her Celeste ring. An icon of Chanel, the Comète collection is always chic. The circular swoosh of these earrings is a fresh take on the shooting star. Every piece Lydia Courteille dreams up in her Paris atelier is one-of-a-kind. Her Zodiac collection creates surreal pieces including the pictured Cancer earrings with a crab clutching a pearl. For the Celeste collection, Jacob & Co. combines the moon and the sun in a single design, then adds strands of diamonds to represent the cosmos.
