Kailis x Aneka Manners
18ct White Gold, 48 blue and green cabochon sapphires (6.66ct), 39 white GVS diamonds (0.30ct) and diamonds and one incredible 11mm Australian South Sea Pearl……what a dream.
I had a vision of a collaboration with Kailis, having been a customer of theirs for many years. I adore pearls and everything associated with pearls including an unusual fixation with oysters and their history (don’t get me started, you’ll get bored)……..Suffice to say I’m a jewellery obsessional whether it’s studying gemmology as I did when I was young, or just being an avid admirer of Belperron, Verdura and others. Being able to collaborate on something which incorporates all of my passions and to take it to an international city of beauty is nothing short of adream. Stones hand-selected to align with specific greens distilled from the images of our textiles and our photo shoots…cut, then polished and then set to create a tonal value that evokes nature, not artifice. These works with Kailis are made to order. If you get one, be prepared to talk about it because people will ask……
Cabochon emeralds and sapphires hand-selected in multiple muted tones taken directly from Aneka Manners signature prints. Highlighted with brilliant cut diamonds in a white gold setting and an inimitable Kailis pearl this limited edition collaboration launched in Florence in October 2018 and is available only on request through Kailis or Aneka Manners.
