ALEXANDRA JACOUMIS

Black Diamond Shisha Line Necklace

£750 GBP

Made to order in 4 - 6 weeks.

Beautiful in its simplicity, the Shisha Line necklace was inspired by the exquisite hand embroidery Alexandra saw on her travels around Rajasthan. The shisha stitch, which originated in 17th century Indian textiles, uses mirrors in the belief that they protect the wearer by reflecting away the evil-eye. 

The intricate and delicate detail of the gold work is from hand sewing with cotton thread, which is then translated into solid 18kt yellow gold.  The 5 black diamonds – ‘diamond’ deriving from the Greek word ‘unconquerable’ – gives a strong, mirrored aesthetic.
