Las Vegas--Pamela Froman expanded her signature crushed-gold pieces this year with the new Boulder Crush collection, which features Australian boulder opals paired with vibrant gemstones: tanzanite and Paraiba tourmaline.

Opals, especially boulder opals, still play a major role in her designs, framed in 18-karat crushed yellow, white and pink gold, and accented with tanzanite and Paraiba. Froman’s pieces offer a bold and distinguished look, easily carried over from day to night.
From the new Boulder Crush line, the one-of-a-kind Hera’s Crush pendant in 18-karat yellow crushed gold with an 18.03-carat Australian boulder opal framed by two rows of pavé-set paraiba tourmaline ($20,900) and an 18-karat pink and yellow crushed-gold ring with an Australian boulder opal and diamond pavé ($7,480)

Froman also showcased some of her new bridal pieces at Couture, including the Warm Wedding bridal suite, the Pastel Wedding set and the Rustic Wedding pieces.
