A few months back I spotted a pair of ear cuffs- asymmetric black wings caught mid flight with highlights of green emeralds… absolutely mesmerizing!
When researched about, the creator was none other than- Leyla Abdollahi, one of the most sought after names in the jewellery industry in the past year. But, the quest is not for pretty and delicate diamond studded jewellery. In fact, it is for more bold and beautiful jewellery, which comes with a hint of darkness, drama and a story embedded in them that leaves the admirer wondering about the thought process going behind those eyes.
Her creations hold a distinctive appeal that forces ones to pay attention and such are her two new collections- Radiant and Passion.
The Radiant collection reminds us of our childhood when one would look through the kaleidoscope for hours, creating new images with every turn. Playing with those random yet symmetrical patterns, Leyla designs some of the most unique jewellery. The square necklace, adorned with Rhodolite, Tourmaline and Amethysts on 18 karat Rose Gold, sits proudly on ones shoulders with earrings and ring in shades of blues and pinks acting as subtle reminders of our childhood playtime.
The Passion collection depicts Leyla’s version of nature- graceful and curvaceous but dark and gothic at the same time. The modular features of the collection add versatility to the collection. The set of three flower bud rings creative quite an impression when worn together yet act gentle when worn individually. The collection also contains a front open necklace and the earrings that turn into pendants.
Eagerly looking forward to what she will create next. And why not… when such an artistic mind is at work, it is worth the wait for her next jewellery piece!
