At 27, Hol­lie Bon­neville Bar­den al­ready sits on the top of the jew­ellery world, land­ing the cov­eted role of head de­signer at De Beers in 2013. She’s been called a jew­ellery prodigy, gifted with a knack for de­sign­ing pieces with ex­cep­tional move­ment and style. What is the most in­spir­ing thing you’ve ever come across? Sleep­ing un­der the enor­mous sky in the Egyp­tian desert. It was amaz­ing how the sense of noth­ing­ness can in­spire your soul. See­ing the beauty of the desert trans­form from day into night is mag­i­cal and surreal. What do you like most about your cur­rent col­lec­tion? Aria in­tro­duces a new con­cept around the idea of a dance of light, a de­sign which can trans­form de­pend­ing on the use of di­a­monds. Cur­rently read­ing... Mid­night’schil­dren by Sal­man Rushdie.
