Nestled within the Mandarin Oriental hotel, fine jewellery and art boutique Maison Artinian has long been every Bangkokian’s beloved treasure chest of sparkles. For Spring/Summer 2019, its house brand Sartoro has unveiled a series of collections inspired by the allure of female confidence. The kind of pieces that are the perfect accompaniment as you head to the ball — and, unquestionably, become the utter belle of it too — the statement collections underscore a sense of everyday luxury, with serious majestic flair.
Fusing diamond pavé lines with oval, pear, and emerald cuts, the Ariana collection sees a selection of feather-light halos designed to wrap around the neck, wrist, and fingers. Somewhat minimalistic, and somewhat melodious, the diamonds twinkle reminiscent of musical notes on the score, making for an opulent statement elegantly suited for gown and gala. The subtly wavy lines are a dreamy accent, and emphasise the showstoppers without stealing the spotlight from the queen who bears them.
The Gaia Bloom collection is characterised by two rows of pear-shaped diamonds combined with a larger dropped diamond. This playfulness highlights Maison Artinian’s creative spirit with an ability to combine luxury with light-heartedness. The pieces are reminiscent of the crown on the head of the regal lady. From a cuffed and dangly earring to a choker necklace, Gaia Bloom is perhaps the most ‘on-high-end-trend’ of the three new collections — a sure cup of tea for any avid fashionista.
The most explicit expression of signature Maison Artinian artistry, the SERA collection looks to bring a sense of timelessness to the Spring/Summer 2019 table. A long pendant and drop earrings are the eye-catchers of this line, combing both marquise and brilliant cut diamonds on 18k white gold. Light and intricate and yet a powerful set for the powerful woman, a feminine silhouette meets a feminine confidence in these pieces. You could wear them with an evening outfit or you could wear them with a suit; either way works, which is the beauty of it.
Indeed, all three Sartoro collections offer a balance of both delicate and audacious statements; perhaps bringing the yin and yang of what it means to be a woman. Innovative design with a timeless message, it’s almost as if Maison Artinian’s pavé diamonds are paving the way to a celebration of self. Be it womanhood or be it style… you gotta love the confidence.
