Petal Power

Flow­ers pro­vide colour­ful in­spi­ra­tion for bold jew­ellery this au­tumn, writes Em­i­lie Yabut-ra­zon

Hong Kong Tatler - - Jewellery -

rich pal­ette of deep blue sap­phires, pur­ple amethysts, for­est green tour­ma­lines and dark pink spinels com­bine to cre­ate a bril­liant fo­liage of jewels per­fect for the cooler months. Opt for dreamy in­ter­pre­ta­tions of un­usual flow­ers, or­chids, spi­ders and but­ter­flies, like Graff ’s Carissa col­lec­tion, named for a flower with five wil­lowy petals. The sap­phire and diamond range in­cludes neck­laces, rings, ear­rings and bracelets.

Inspired by Greek lau­rel wreaths, Anna Hu’s Athena’s Lau­rel pen­dant fea­tures a unique con­fig­u­ra­tion of petals em­bel­lished with green tour­ma­lines, while the Tai­wan-based de­signer’s Sum­mer Bam­boo ear­rings show­case her love of paint­ing through pavé set­tings.

Add drama to any out­fit with the multi-coloured Dear Dior Résille Bou­quet d’opales ear­rings, or Dami­ani’s three-di­men­sional Giglio orchid ring, set with a mix of teardrop and bril­liant-cut pink sap­phires, tour­ma­lines and di­a­monds.

For an edgier look, Roberto Coin’s Gar­den black gold ring is a real con­ver­sa­tion starter, with a spi­der perched atop a 62-carat blue topaz.
