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
