    With her inspirational and exquisitely feminine designs so often anchored in nature – be it with her famed conch pearl creations, or here with her original use of carved wood juxtaposed with the shimmering brilliance of delicately-placed diamonds - yet again Karen’s refined taste and originality breathe a new life into classic motifs, as she creates a look that is at once modern, bold and elegant.

    A diamond and wood ‘rose’ ring with matching earrings, embody Karen’s aesthetic and vibrant individuality as an artist. The smoothness, simplicity and warmth of the wood gracefully and tactfully contrast against the lively diamonds.

    This original use of wood, itself an organic material rarely used in jewellery making, naturally leads us to appreciate its beauty in a new light and specifically as a piece of everyday glamour.

    Lot 580 is a perfectly-balanced fusion of different materials in a timeless creation that speaks volumes for Karen’s insatiable passion and enthusiasm towards her one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces.
