The Star-Crossed Lovers collection features dark romantic jewellery pieces called Romeo & Juliet, Heathcliff & Cathy and Abelard & Heloise.
I’ve taken inspiration from classic romantic love stories in literature and the middle ages to embody a collection that immediately provokes images of passion, dark romance and tragedy – a theme rich in imagery that plays out strikingly in the medium of jewellery.
Star-crossed lovers as a theme really inspired me and let me incorporate elements like interlocking rings that can be worn as pairs (so perfect for stacking) or on their own, plus feminine forms and more masculine armour-like details. The feminine and the masculine personalities of these characters are really at play in this collection and incorporated into every piece to reflect the theme.
The feminine forms and sensual curves in this pendant work beautifully with the bright red ruby – and very wearable day or night.
The pendant hangs from an intertwined looped shape and moves independently of the pendant.
Handmade by me in my North London studio and comes packaged in a Lee Renée branded box and wrapped in satin ribbon.
Pendant measures approx 3.2cm long and 1.2cm at widest point. Chain measures 21”. Ruby measures 0.35cm wide.
Chain is made in silver and pendant in Italian brass, all generously overlayed with 18ct Gold and set with a red Ruby.
