Legends in Gems: 2015

When it comes to a) raw talent and b) Instagram accounts that we’re obsessed with, @anoukcolantoni is top of mind. The New York-based illustrator and stylist has been a long-time friend of The Stone Set. Anouk was our very first On The Rocks profile and continues to have an eye for people with style and showstopping jewelry. Her spirited #doodleaday sketches make our days significantly more fun and inspired. The beginning of 2015 was the perfect time to kick off an original collaboration.

“I have collaborated with The Stone Set for the final 2014 blow out! We picked 2 pieces from the new collections that are worthy of our New Year’s Eve Celebrations – on two legends that I wish were hosting the parties we were going to, and how they may be seeing in 2015 in soulful style!” –Anouk Colantoni


1. Cher – 2014’s reflective protagonist.

The Dark Side. In her MAJOR Céline Mono earring – this is her story:

As Cher sat quietly, admiring her party-pop Céline bedazzling and awaiting her limo to take her to her party – she looked soulfully in the mirror and thought of her year.

“Do I? Do I really believe in life after love?”


2. Diana Ross – 2014’s power pin-up!

The Bright Side. In her Chanel Comète masterpiece necklace – this is her story:

As Ms. Ross shot onto to the New Years Eve countdown stage like the shining Chanel Comete necklace she was rocking out – she belted out her 2015 anthem with pride and determination: ” Ain’t no mountain high enough! Ain’t no river wide enough!” Bring it on!
