Aurélie Bidermann’s Midas Touch

James T. Murray

The designer knows gold.

Aurélie Bidermann has been dabbling in precious metals for years, plating her lace cuffs and feather necklaces in 18-karat gold. With her new 50-piece collection, the French designer is making her metalwork the main attraction while incorporating colored stones such as pink tourmaline, ruby, sapphire and rubellite, all of which are shown in her Eléphant de Mariage necklace pictured here ($28,080).
