Long gone are the days of costume jewellery feather-tassel earrings, but it seems like feathers might be having a comeback, flying their way into more sophisticated fine jewellery designs! At least that’s true for Mike Joseph Jewellery, who surprised Couture Las Vegas audiences once again after winning Couture Design Awards for Best in Diamonds Above $20,000 last year!

“My biggest reward in creating new pieces comes when someone has a genuine emotional response to my work: be it a joy, a smile or a moment of introspection” – Mike Saatji, designer of Mike Joseph Jewellery

When feathers collide with talented craftsmanship in fine jewellery, magic really does happen! The striking contemporary peacock inspired jewels of Mike Joseph Jewellery feature a myriad of trapeze-cut diamonds sprinkled on shining yellow gold to create a flowing effect. Removable feathers add an avant-garde touch to the modern glamour of the set (Important note: no birds were injured!) From pear to cushion-cut diamond, each of the 6 jewels is set with a larger-centre stone bringing the composition together.

For this look I couldn’t resist styling the whole set of 3 rings, 2 cuff bracelets and a breathtaking choker together! No earrings needed when your neck and hands are ready to make a bold statement, adorned in diamonds and feathers. Paired with no less extravagant feather sleeved white blouse, this gorgeous blend of feathers and fine jewellery makes me feel light as a feather and ready for the next jewellery adventure!
