The 45 exceptional pieces in this curated selection reinterpret the tweed’s flexible, woven surface to breathe vitality into gold juxtaposed with diamonds, pearls and sapphires.
Special articulation techniques were used to layer and intertwine the gems, creating necklaces, rings and bracelets with textured effects.
“Responding to the depth and richness of this fabric, precious materials are interwoven, articulated and finely wrought in the manner of a tweed weft, with suppleness and comfort being found in the very structure of the pieces. Each setting has been pared back to minimalist extreme to reduce the asperity of the grain, making every piece soft to the touch,” the brand revealed.
