DESCRIPTION: Inspired by the concept of Duality- the coexistence of contrast and harmony represented by a graceful form that curves in two axes and continues onto itself. Also symbolic of the duet in life of a couple’s coming together, this cuff-style wrist-piece designed for a contemporary bride is envisioned in 18kt rose gold lined with cream and pink Akoya pearls in graduated sizes embracing its curves. A backdrop of pave-set pink tourmalines accentuates the colour of the pink pearls while the cream pearls are set amidst a surface of round brilliant cut diamonds, forming an interesting interdependence between light and dark.  The uniqueness of the form lends itself to be worn in two distinctive orientations, each special in its appeal.
