A JEWEL FOR YOUR THOUGHTS
Caratell’s intricate fine jewellery inspired by sweet nostalgia
OPENWORK PIECES WITH DELICATE CLOUD AND FLORAL IMPRESSIONS EMBELLISHED WITH PRECIOUS GEMSTONES MAKE UP CARATELL’S NEW COLLECTION CALLED ABOVE THE CLOUDS. The collection, a poetic representation of a childhood imagination according to Caratell’s founder and chief designer, Michael Koh, was conceptualised on top of the ‘ruby’ mountain in Mogok, Myanmar.
“It was at dawn and I was at the peak of the mountain standing above the clouds, gazing into the endless horizon,” shares Michael. “The clouds appeared to frolic lazily, teasing the tall trees in the mountains, reminding me of a pure, childhood joy. It felt like the earth was meeting heaven in a joyous embrace.” It was at this moment that Michael thought of capturing the essence of his new collection, combining exceptional design details with carefully chosen gemstones to give life to this precious memory.
Similarly, in the Floral Breeze the breeze is translated into amazing red and white bejewelled blossoms; their delicate details expressed by rare tapered rubies and sparkling tapered baguette
