The New Look of Chic
“Chic is about being playful, having a sense of fun when wearing jewelry. It is about simplicity and elegance. If I think of chic in the past it would be my grandmother Olga dressed in a 1920 dress. That same purity and sleek design is what is called for in a world of pared down fashion; of new casual lifestyle but keeping a cutting edge about oneself.”

The New Look of Chic pieces
My take on paisley, an 18K gold bangle and ear studs.
Cufflinks made of precious woods mounted on 20K rose gold including one in striped ebony and rubies.
In the series of crosses for men and women: a Maltese cross in 24k, a Celtic cross in Damascus steel with a 24k gold frame and an oxidized bronze and moonstone Celtic cross.
“For men the attention to detail of a simple cufflink with an open necked shirt defines “chic”. In a woman it’s the use of inexpensive wood or other natural material one could wear every day but superbly crafted and including a gemstone.”
On the right the Russian bracelet my grandmother had inherited from her mother Grand Duchess Helen of Russia and that she wore all her life and on the left my version of it.
The Knot of Savoy rings. In every color you want and very affordable. The Knot of Savoy became the heraldic symbol of my mother’s side of the family, the royal House of Savoy, in the 13th century during the reign of Thomas I, Count of Savoy.
