This season, the Japanese jeweller turns to the blossoming florals for inspiration, reimagining each flower and petal into exquisitely designed jewel pieces using 18K white gold and diamonds, as well as precious cultured pearls for their celebrated colour and alluring lustre.

Titled ‘Bloom‘, this delicate jewellery collection consists of two pendants, earrings and a brooch, which are all exquisitely created using exceptional craftsmanship, resulting in an asymmetrical yet balanced design that beautifully displays the blooming of flowers.

The bouquet-like design brooch, for example, consists of Japanese Akoya cultured pearls with sizes ranging from 4.50mm to 7.75mm, with radiance that shines subtly amongst gorgeous florals made from sparkling diamonds on white gold, resulting in a vibrant and energetic flair, much like real flowers. The pendants and earrings, on the other hand, comprise smaller cultured pearls of supreme quality, with diamonds embellishing other flowers’ pistil for an extra touch of lavishness.

Every pearl in this collection is cautiously selected one by one by an experienced craftsman, making sure that they all match with each other in terms of both colour and size, before individually adjusting them to reveal the best angle that blends perfectly with the glittering diamonds for a harmonious aesthetic. These captivating jewels are then assembled skilfully, using a blend of traditional Japanese metalworking craftsmanship and European manufacturing techniques, so you can enjoy the gracious movements of the jewels as they sway gracefully along with your every move.
