In honor of the New York City Ballet’s 50th Anniversary, fashion designer Derek Lam and ballerina-turned-jewelry designer Jamie Wolf (best known for having designed Natalie Portman’s wedding ring, after meeting the star on the set of ‘Black Swan’), collaborated to create a stunning new jewelry line: Black and White.


Inspired by choreographer and NYC Ballet co-founder George Balanchine, every piece in the magnificent collection alludes to a movement, set, or costume in a ballet, and is fashioned from rhodium plated sterling silver with black and white diamonds.


Yesterday, the duo feted Black and White’s launch at Lam’s flagship shop alongside a slew of who’s whos, including Padma Lakshmi, Julie Macklowe, Selby Drummond, and Roopal Patel.


With prices ranging from $120 to $2050, the Collection will be sold at Derek Lam’s Madison Avenue boutique, and online at jamiewolf.com. A fifth of the line’s profits will benefit the New York City Ballet.
