After years of collecting vintage jewels, Tracy Smith has made a name for herself as a leading accessories curator—indeed, her House of Lavande treasures are now standard fare on major red carpets. Now the Palm Beach resident is turning her editorial eye to her latest project: House of Lavande Made in Italy, a collection of new jewelry pieces inspired by her adventures as a vintage collector. In shades of amethyst, ice blue, jade, and blush, the colorful pieces mimic the carefree spirit of the designer’s Floridian surroundings. Mother-of-pearl shark teeth, reconstructed coral pendants, and gold tassels appear on wooden drop earrings, gemstone necklaces, and cocktail rings, creating a look that’s polished and sophisticated and yet still imbues a beachy personality. 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Ste. 332, Palm Beach, 561-802-3737
