Any fashion stylist will agree that nothing beats the impact of a fantastic piece of jewelry. Nicole Romano not only seconds the notion, but she amplifies it by about a thousand. A graduate of RISD, Romano began her fashion career working with designer Nicole Miller and then with legendary stylist Patricia Field. Both experiences provided Romano with a "graduate" education, enabling her to launch her own jewelry collection. Her talent for mixing materials and playing with proportions makes her collection smashing. Romano was selected as a finalist for Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Award in 2011.
