A Torc is a single piece rigid neck ring open at the front. It was mainly worn by men as a medal or trophy to demonstrate rank, strength, and power. It has its roots in Mesopotania, Scythians, Ancients Greece and Rome; and finally with the Celts who are most identified with it throughout the Iron Age. The Torc rests at lower edge of the neck artery/vein where it meets the curve where the shoulder begins. This position and the fact that the Torc is a solid single piece, gives it a strong and sensual feel. It evokes…

To mark their 40th birthday, they revisited the iconic model in which they were first introduced. Inspired by a Waterfall in the Black Forest While out on a walk in the Black Forest during the 1970s, Chopard designer Ronald Kurowski was entranced by the sight of a waterfall and the thousands of tiny water droplets bursting out from it, reflecting the daylight and sparkling with all the colours of the rainbow.

FORCES OF NATURE COLLECTION: GRAVITY EARRINGS Conceptual fine jewelry designers, brothers Guy and Max Shepherd have been creating unconventional and beautiful jewels for more than a decade via innovative and experimental methods.

As well as this hypnotic movement the earrings also have a unique hanging element, the hook of the earring is threaded through the back of the ear giving them a much more…
