Highlighting the Ricci Collection ~ 5 things to know
Late last year we released the final drop of styles from our Ricci collection ~ we see it as only fitting to take some time now to highlight these styles, the processes & thoughts that went into making it all possible.
Here's 5 things to know about our newest collection jewels and all your favourite styles.
Designed over lockdown while dressing down and dressing for comfort - the idea of ‘when it’s all over‘ fueled the inspiration for many of our Ricci styles.
We wanted to hang onto the notion that we will want to get dressed up again, celebrate occasions, be together, put on a good pair of party earrings and once again dance the night away….
2. Originally designed
Each Ricci style was designed in-house in our Byron Bay studio.
We started sampling the hollow spheres which feature in this series on our Disco Hoops and Disco Drops 01. & 02. over a year ago, going back and forth trying to make them as light as possible so we could meet our design aesthetic and still retain functionality.
3. A Time for Firsts
We’re so excited to introduce the first gemstone to our Flash collections ~ beautiful, baguette-cut clear Topaz. Reflecting and glittering with a natural, baby blue hue. Each Topaz gemstone is individually set by hand by our skilled artisans & encased in our premium 14k vermeil.
4. It’s in the Details
From gemstones set by hand to hollowed-out imperfect domes ~ in this collection we focused on some really special features.
One of our favourite details belongs to the Ingot Pendant Necklace. Each ingot is weighed & engraved with its exact individual weight ~ every weight is slightly different, making each & every one of these necklaces unique.
5. Mindfully Made
We’re so proud of our new jewels and the ethics that have been considered & involved whilst creating them.
Each piece is handmade by our skilled artisans in ethically sourced (and where possible, recycled) metals to create our premium 14k vermeil.
