FRESH… LIGHT…DELICIOUSLY REFINED!

As Spring kicks in with full force, body and soul are longing for airiness and joy.

The Canary Atlantis Drop Earrings by award-winning jewelry designer Anabela Chan unify the delicacy of leaf veins in citrus-hued recycled aluminium, white gold and rhodium vermeil, and the transparency of lab-grown and simulated clear white diamonds, yellow sapphires and canary citrines.

The earrings come from the Mermaid’s Tale collection, which was inspired by the magic and marvels of the ocean depths.

Although unable to travel much due to the pandemic, Anabela Chan found a way to explore the deep waters through the eyes and camera lenses of her friends, Valentine Thomas  – a former lawyer, now a freediver, chef and sustainable seafood expert – and underwater photographer Lily Wang.

Characteristic of all Anabela’s jewels is their unique recognizability: each piece is different, yet you can instantly tell who is behind their creation.

In her designs, she uses lab-grown gems and recycled metals, focusing on ethical and sustainable materials, techniques and innovations.

For this collection, Anabela opted for waste metals found in the oceans and on polluted beaches, to contribute to the restoration of marine ecosystems. For every creation sold, the Anabela Chan jewelry brand pledges, through Sustainable Surf’s SeaTrees project (source: https://sea-trees.org/), to plant one hundred of the mangrove trees that thrive in coastal saline waters, protecting and restoring coastlines and the seas.

The aluminium used in the Canary Atlantis Drop Earrings, as well as other pieces from the Mermaid’s Tale collection, comes from recycled aluminium soda cans fished out from the ocean and is collected from beaches by eco enthusiasts as well as by Anabela and her own kids.

Spring is calling:

To be joyful.

To be kind to nature and to people.

To breathe in fresh air and bask in beauty…

WHITE GOLD SWIRLS AND DIAMOND SPLASHES: DÉFERLANTE BY CHAUMET

EIGHT UNIQUE JEWELS, INCLUDING A SECRET TIMEPIECE, IN A NEW COLLECTION GLORIFYING THE MAGNIFICENT POWER OF OCEAN WAVES

FavoriteLoading

Spilling waves, plunging waves, surging waves. Collapsing waves, tidal waves, progressive waves. Capillary waves, refracted waves, seiche waves.

Shallow wavelets, where children like to play, and dangerous reef breaks, tamed by daredevil surfers. Mellow ripples and dramatic tsunamis.

Some caused by the friction between surface water and the wind. Others, by the gravitational pull on our planet of the Sun and the Moon.

These powerful surges of energy have now been immortalised in the new high jewellery capsule collection Déferlante by Chaumet.

The Déferlante (“wave” in French) collection consists of eight pieces which make up a parure: a tiara set with 1,600 brilliant-cut and step-cut diamonds; a necklace, using Chaumet’s signature fil-couteau technique, where stones appear as if they are floating; two rings (one transformable); two sets of earrings; a brooch; and a secret watch with a Swiss mechanical self-winding movement, which comes in a limited edition of three pieces.

Combinations of white diamonds of different shapes and sizes cascade down intricate settings of white gold. Bold angles and clean, sculptural lines generate the sensation of movement, the bubbling murmur of the foam, the sparkling joy of splattering surf, and the majestic realization of the fragility of us, humans, when faced with the forces of nature.

How many times have you found yourself mesmerized by the vastness of the sea, watching the horizon, catching the movement of the waves, losing track of time?

Déferlante by Chaumet is exactly that: graceful as the poetry, powerful as the surge, timeless as the World’s oceans.
