As much as one’s jewellery collection should include conversation-starting pieces, it should also be curated with daily wear in mind. After all, most of us want to keep our special pieces close. So, when a brand creates head-turning jewellery that also feels inherently wearable, we sit up and take notice.
For local purveyors of iconic jewellery Naveya & Sloane, this idea is something that has long been at the forefront of its coveted collections — exquisite and timeless jewellery with enduring quality. Nowhere is this more clear than in the brand’s beautiful new collection, Romeo Flower, a line-up that captures ‘the essence of life’s breathtaking experiences that words can’t describe’, inspired by simple, organic forms, like a flower in bloom.
Conceived in lockdown 2020 while the brand’s Co-Founder and Creative Director, Rachel Sloane was dreaming of blooming spring days and the arrival of her firstborn, Romeo Flower grew from ideas of floral forms like the Winter Rose, a flower gifted by her mother when her daughter Amelie was born.
“I wanted to create a collection that was so beautiful, it would stop people in their tracks,” Sloane explains. “Similar to the feeling of coming across a beautiful flower in nature. A simple moment of pure magic and divine beauty — where time stands still and the moment takes your breath away.”
Launching with 12 pieces, Naveya & Sloane’s new collection reimagines the classic floral jewellery trope with its domed flower motif, in which four structured Matisse petals are connected by a sparkling, central diamond and rendered in either 18 karat yellow or white gold or, for some selected pieces, entirely encrusted in diamonds. Here, the pieces offer a subtle nod to old-world glamour while still feeling aligned with the contemporary luxury that has become so synonymous with the brand’s designs, balancing ornamental details and modern finishes with skilful finesse.
By its very nature, Romeo Flower is a fine collection with wearability at its heart, where dainty pendants, intricately detailed, diamond-adorned rings (as perfect for stacking as they are on their own) and understated earrings stand as the kinds of pieces you could wear for days without taking off.
