Jewelry on the Brain

Perhaps Frank Gehry knew his design for the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in downtown Las Vegas would one day inspire a line of jewelry. He has collaborated with Tiffany & Co. since 2003, after all.

In May the jeweler with the baby-blue boxes unveils the Gehry Grid collection, inspired by the Lou Ruvo Center. The creations—two pendants and a cuff—are crafted from sterling silver and retail for $225-$550. The trio of Ruvo-inspired jewelry will be available at three local Tiffany & Co. locations once released: at the Forum Shops at Caesars, Bellagio and Crystals at CityCenter.

“Frank Gehry’s structural designs … [feature] a sense of movement and grace that naturally conform to the body,” says Peter Sinibaldi, Tiffany & Co. group director for the Las Vegas market.
