Dallas jewelry designer Shona Gilbert

If you’re attending a show at the Meyerson Symphony Center this fall, you may spy something sparkly in the DSO boutique. To help celebrate the Meyerson’s 25th anniversary, Dallas jewelry designer Shona Gilbert is selling special pieces from her fall lines at the lower-level shop.

During the 2014-15 season, Dallas Symphony Orchestra patrons can find items from two Shona collections: Departed, which honors Gilbert’s late father and features repurposed antique accessories with a variety of high-end pearls, and DisKo, which offers groovier, whimsical alternatives to the more serious Departed pieces. Jewelry in both collections starts at $100; more exclusive designs go for closer to $1,200.

The collections will be available at the DSO open house commencing the anniversary season’s opening performance on September 13. The jewelry is also available online.

This isn’t Gilbert’s first time working with the Dallas fine arts community. Soon after the designer launched her jewelry collection in 2011, it was selected by the Dallas Museum of Art as the featured jeweler associated with the exhibit “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk.”
