LONDON, September 2016 – Jewellery designer Amy Burton has launched three bold, stylish and wearable fine jewellery collections featuring extraordinary gemstones, which are stocked exclusively by Hancocks London.
A key feature of the new Disorient, Unum and Crescendo collections is superb quality of craftsmanship, with all of Amy’s jewellery made in the UK.
“To be considered truly fine jewellery in my eyes it has to be a tiny masterpiece,” Amy said.
“Finished as beautifully on the back as the front and from every direction.”
The Disorient collection is characterised by strong architectural lines that cleverly play with ideas of volume, geometry and negative space to create bold sculptural jewels that are substantial but also light, open and feminine.
The centre piece for the 2017 collection is a stunning cuff bangle of entwined gold woven in a seemingly random and disoriented maze around a 123.70-carat rich purple amethyst.
As the name suggests, each piece is completely unique and created around an exceptional gemstone whose shape and character wholly inspired the design into which it is set.
These include a golden yellow 63.80-carat unheated sapphire in a beautifully fine openwork ring with the stone appearing to float within its platinum and diamond basket.
The collection was so named because it is based around the idea of colour and the effects that can be achieved with clever use of graduation in terms of shade, tone and strength.
The centre piece is a show stopping bib necklace that uses a mix of different gemstones to create a beautiful flow of colour building from a soft lilac through to intense raspberry pink and a deep, regal purple.
Amy’s pieces can be seen at Hancocks London, 52-53 Burlington Arcade, London W1J 0HH.
