Ofira Sandberg is the sister of well-known celebrity jewelry designer, Lorraine Schwartz.  She describes her designs as “wearable for everyday,” and little more edgy that her sister’s fancier, red-carpet style.  In the designer’s opinion, Amethyst is the most underrated stone because it’s color mixes so well with other stones like rubies and turquoise.  Her versatility has also brought her some male clients, such as InStyle’s fashion director, Hal Rubenstein.  Ofira says the best compliment she ever got was from Elizabeth Taylor; they were seated together when Taylor reached over and took the designer’s earrings off and explained that she had to have them.
