Heart of Gold

Every jewelry designer understands that no symbol or shape is more expressive than the heart. Albright’s collection includes a diverse array. At first, Albright was reluctant to wear pins as eye-catching as the pink tourmaline Wrapped Heart, for fear that it would seem too showy. As she matured and pins became part of her diplomatic persona, Albright grew to like larger and bolder, even crazier, pieces.
