PERSUASION

The beautiful and mysterious courtship rituals performed by birds-of-paradise inspired this graceful and alluring collection.

Each colourful breed has developed its own breathtakingly extravagant dance. The staggering array of male adornments, and the ways they are displayed, have become increasingly extreme through the generations, purely because they are the ones the females find most attractive.

The remote, inaccessible and dense rainforest of Papua New Guinea has provided these rare and magnificent creatures with an ideal habitat in which to flourish. Free from natural predators, they have developed some of the animal world's most spectacular shows.

For centuries, the astounding ways in which a male displays his vibrant coloured feathers to the female have been a source of artistic inspiration, mystery and scientific fascination.

Capturing the enticing motion of the male’s colourful plumes in the opening act of his dramatic dance, this collection is characterized by a swirling fan of feathers in the center of each piece. Fanning out in rippling waves from the central stone, the barbs of each plume give rise to significant yet light forms.

Presented in three sizes, the collection uses two styles of techniques. The first, in plain gold and pavè diamonds, perfectly matches any apparel. The second technique uses invisible setting to breathe unique life into colourless carré diamonds, sapphires, tsavorites and rubies, while making the fan even more spectacular.
