.Architectural Gems

At .Cent we love anything that links the various creative disciplines. This collection from D’Joya inspired by the work of Gaudi is a fantastic example of this practise.
tiara
This tiara is the centre piece to the whole collection.  Inspired by two Gaudi masterpieces – the wonderful gateway entrance to Casa Mila and the east-facing Nativity Facade of La Sagrada Familia.  The tiara has an antique finish encrusted with natural unheated sapphires and brioletes and 1295 single cut champagne diamonds.
parkguellearrings
These Park Guell earrings are entirely inspired by the wonderful Mosaic Pathway there, these larger than life earrings substitute recycled ceramic chips with a mix of diamonds and multi-colour sapphires.  Detail is as present to the front of the piece as well as the reverse – a key trait of the signature at the house of D’Joya.
Brooch
Nothing epitomises Gaudi’s work more than the Nativity Facade of La Sagrada Familia,  Barcelona’s stunning church and Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece. This brooch is sparkling with 101 gems and golden briolettes, triangles, baguettes and single cut champagne diamonds.
gaudisignaturenecklaceThe Palau Guell gate is one of the few places Gaudi adorned his name with.  Seen here in the form of a wrought iron G.  This Gaudi Signature necklace is D’Joya’s celebration of this feature.  Using black rhodium on a 18k gold base, complete with a green enamel charm, which is taken directly from the mosaic ceramic chimney that sits atop Barcelona’s Palau Guell mansion.
