With Mother’s Day around the corner, what makes a powerful statement of love and beauty more than a special gift from one of the most innovative designers of our time? An entire bouquet of them, of course! By combining together a few highlights from some of Alex Soldier’s most coveted classics- the Coronaria and the Sunflower collection- is a sure way to achieve an effect of ultimate artisanal self-expression. Luxuriant and festive attire of Alex Soldier’s Coronaria is a fine decoration for any occasion, with every petal having its own unique ornament, like life lines of the human palm, and each gracious curve of its petal reaching towards the sun. This exquisite adornment is remarkable for its rich color diversity, signature proprietary metalwork and a magical feature to transform from a brooch into a pendant or a headpiece, as illustrated above.
Inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s celebrated Sunflower series, Alex Soldier’s Sunflower collection is a colorful combination of 18 karat white, yellow and rose gold, studded with color diamonds and tsavorite garnets. The colors are vibrant and express emotions associated with the life of sunflowers: bright yellows of the full bloom to dark browns of ripeness. The sunflower represents life’s vibrant movement from joyous youth to ageless wisdom of maturity. It is dedicated to every woman who lives life to the fullest. Each piece in the sunflower series consists of myriad connecting components and presents a complex integration of meaning, design and superb craftsmanship that is truly wearable art. They are all handmade in New York City and part of a very limited editions.
