The new inventions of Vak, the Indian Maison specializing in surprising fine jewelry also present at Pad London 2019 ♦ ︎
Vak is the fruit of a family heritage. Yet, though inspired by the ancient and traditional jewelry, the Mumbai Maison founded by Vishal Kothari, it’s all about innovation. Graduated at Gia in New York, the Indian designer does not just projects high jewelery but emphasizes creativity driven by a technique that is often surprising. The diamonds that make up the petals for earrings or rings, are cut and mounted so that they are flexible, but at the same time well-balanced. Vak’s jewelry is awaited with patience by a host of fans that contests jewelry made in few pieces. On the other hand, it’s not easy to make jewels like the Desert Rain Ring: a cloud of diamonds cut in pink that seems to fall on a brushed gold surface like rain on the sand. It’s a cocktail ring shock but, they explain to Vak, is in fact a promised wish, like rain in the desert.
The Vak jewels-works have been exhibited in the area of Karry Berry, a refined Maison specialized in selected art jewels. Like those of Vak. Giulia Netrese
