Jewel of the day: Lauren X Khoo Sapphire Star Bracelet

Again, here is a piece that has the insouciance of costume jewellery but is most definitely real. Witness the €22,000 price tag.

That’s because it’s set with nearly 22 carats of multicoloured sapphires, set in 18k white gold.

Designer Lauren Khoo was, according to the Colette web site, “Born in Singapore to a Chinese family, designer Lauren Khoo lives between New York and Hong Kong. After studying, art and architecture, she earned a gemologist and goldsmith degree and before finally launching her eponymous label. Lauren’s lifelong love of fine and intricate handcrafted jewelry was cultivated as a child during time spent with her grandmother, an avid jewelry collector. Her jewelry is about timeless evocative design, impeccable artisanship, creativity, originality and dedication to perfection. Her creations aim to combine the freshness and energy of the contemporary with the elegance of classics.”

Available from Colette Paris, it. (If ordering from outside the European Union, the VAT refund brings the price down to €18,750.)
