and time-con­sum­ing crafts­man­ship that com­bines del­i­cate hand en­graved pat­terns of geo­met­ric lines on pre­cious met­als with lay­ers of hand-painted coloured translu­cent enamel.

Some of the ma­chin­ery used to cre­ate the col­lec­tion is 100 years old, ex­cep­tion­ally pre­served and rare.

The art form dates back to the 1700s when it was used to cre­ate beau­ti­ful ‘ ob­jets d’art’, watch cases, dress­ing ta­ble sets and later, Fabergé eggs.

The En­light­en­ment Col­lec­tion is avail­able in stunning colours – Day­break, Mediter­ranean Blue and Aurora Green.

Kailis uses un­treated rare Aus­tralian South Sea pearls, famed for their round, lus­trous ap­pear­ance and size.

Each piece con­tains a ‘hid­den’ black di­a­mond, Kailis’ unique style sig­na­ture and sym­bol of au­then­tic­ity.

The col­lec­tion is avail­able from Kailis stores in Perth and Fre­man­tle and se­lect stock­ists na­tion­ally. Visit www.kail­is­jew­ellery. com.au to find them.
