Huntress Collection - Toronto Fashion Week – Nov 2014

Paloma Sanchez was invited by the producers of the Travel Channel show The Gem Hunter to showcase some of her unique pieces in The Huntress Collection at the 2014 Fashion Week held in Toronto, Canada. As a GIA Gemologist and jewelry designer renowned for her gem-hunting trips, Paloma Sanchez was the first gem huntress to present.

The designers of the Huntress Collection drew on the mythological Diana – the daughter of Jupiter and Latona, and twin sister to Apollo – who was the goddess of wild animals and the hunt.

There were 15 Paloma Sanchez pieces in the show as well as designs by Diane Robinson, Marta Bordes, Ravenwood, and Victoria. The audience were transfixed by the parade of huntresses sporting necklaces, earrings, cuffs and even clutches and handbags. The grand finale of the show saw Suits leading actress Gina Torres striding out with two Irish Wolfhounds by her sides. Around her neck was Paloma’s splash copper necklace, plated in 18k white gold, a strong piece for the dazzling Queen of The Huntress Show.
