Wings unfurl, whispering, Where to next?
“Freedom requires courage to do what you choose to do, and take responsibility for your actions. It means being able to do exactly what I want, without being questioned, with equal opportunities.”
Kalki Koechlin, actor and writer
The free-spirited nature of a woman who lives life on her own terms is captured in this collection through symbolic wings flying free in vibrant ombré hues.
Designed with unfettered wings in 18K rose gold, the jewels gracefully float on the skin with coloured precious stones and white diamonds that are pavé-set in ombré arrangements. The layered swirls of feathers are individually handcrafted to move for a soft fluttering effect, evoking her independent soul.
“Freedom I think is being able to change – you can change your career path, your persona, your lifestyle, and pursue your dreams. As a woman in this industry, it’s nice to be able to embody so much femininity but also to take on different characters. One day you could be feminine and another you could be masculine – it’s nice to have this freedom to explore. The Born To Fly collection, which features a wing motif, is a beautiful representation of freedom. It even has movement within the pieces. So it's a very beautiful, simple and tactile symbol.”
