Bejewelled Snowflakes

Tuesday, 18 December 2012

Christmas is fast approaching and as usual we are totally inspired by jewels and all things luxurious.

Snowflakes are beautiful and unique it is obvious why jewellery designers have been inspired by them.  We’ve always liked the idea of a sparkling, dazzling Christmas, so we combined jewelled snowflakes and encrusted icicle stars in to our Diamonds Are Forever Christmas range.  Above is one of the cards from the range.

This is one of the first photographs ever taken of a snowflake, by Wilson A Bentley.  The detail is magnificent and intricate.
These earrings worn by Doris Duke made by Van Cleef  Arpels were a source of inspiration to us when painting and also this more modern looking unusual Chanel snowflake brooch.

Cartier have always been a huge source of inspiration for us and their Winter Tale advertisement is so magical and enchanting.  We love everything about it especially the gigantic glowing Christmas tree, beautiful cats and the gem encrusted panthers against the midnight blue sky.  To watch it click here
