It’s a season for splendour and exuberance, and even jewels tell us seductive tales. Earrings speak louder than neckpieces and assume shapes that beckon you to look longer; be it Armenta’s surrealistic diamond and malachite eye-resembling earrings or Natasha Zinko’s spectacularly decadent memento mori of gold skeleton-shaped earrings complete with diamonds and pearls.
Rings look as though discovered from a Gatsby-era treasure box: from Amrapali’s glamorously geometric tanzanite, diamond and emerald rings to Solange Azagury-Partridge’s delectable art deco treats in the form of gold Real Heart and Hotlips rings. On the other hand, Pomellato’s Tabou and Bahia rose gold rings with blue London topaz and pink sapphires call up an even more fascinating time and place, inviting you to flamboyantly pile them on for a whisper of Sheherazade’s One Thousand and One Nights.
If you, however, are looking for the one and only, it is Armenta’s New World ring with central malachite and blue topaz stone, champagne diamonds and peacock tourmaline that can be your precious. If your heart is set on something a little more animated, the sensation of Amrapali’s blue sapphire and diamond-frosted white gold bracelet slithering around your wrist is sure to make your heart jump with joy with every move. But who needs a prince when you can have Annoushka’s brilliant diamond, ruby and green garnet-covered toad on your finger? You won’t have to kiss it; it will be your hand that will demand the kissing.
