‘Tis the season which is why we have already started thinking about what jewellery to wear during the upcoming party season. While Hong Kong based jewellers Carat are known for their faux but no less chic diamond jewels – think basics like solitaire earrings, tennis bracelets, etc – we recently discovered their latest collections which are super modern, fun and more importantly, fashion forward.
Take for example the Millennium collection which includes the Lexi, an updated version of the diamond tennis bracelet in different colored stones like green, pink and black, in addition to the traditional white. The bracelets are super thin – the idea is to wear a whole bunch of them at a time – and feature a practical toggle fastening which is a design feature in itself. There are also two finger rings, palm bracelets and ear cuffs including the Baroque inspired Rocco ear cuffs, which feature a serpent trailing along the ear.
Also worth checking out is the punk inspired Bermuda collection which includes more sculptural geometric shapes accented with mirco pave “diamonds” (aka Carat’s high quality cubic zircons). We have our eye on the chunky Jackson bracelet in pink gold while the Punk stud triangle earrings are cool yet classic enough to wear season after season.
