Designer Penny Preville has been part of the COUTURE family since the very beginning! This year marks Penny’s 20th year at COUTURE, and with her signature feminine and intricately detailed jewelry, this prolific designer always gives us something new to look forward to. Worn by well-heeled women across the globe, Penny’s jewelry is also no stranger to the red carpet, where it is often the first choice of A-list actresses.
