Like a hypnotic vision, the designs seamlessly fuse the romantic rose gold with its incandescent white counterpart. The undulated lines create a rhythm of subtle golden waves that clash against the quadrilateral forms, mounted with brilliant round and baguette diamonds dazzling the gaze. 14K Rose Gold, G-VS Diamonds & Enamel
Launched in 2015 in Istanbul Melis Goral Jewelry collections draws inspiration from nature and culture, heavily influenced by the art deco movement with intricate designs consisting of custom-cut emeralds, sapphires and rubies delicately entwined with 14K and 18K gold.
Bringing life to visions, Melis Goral creations are 11 utterly wearable and timeless collections that are inherently alluring, effortlessly elegant and beautifully precise.
The family heritage allows Melis a richer understanding of the creative possibilities in the realm of jewelry making with various techniques used throughout the designs with an array of beautiful jewels, setting them all in either rose or white gold.
The design aesthetic is an eloquent and contemporary take on the Art Deco movement, distinctly imbued with geometric shapes. Most striking pieces amongst the collection are those featuring large custom-cut colourful gems dramatically placed amidst pavé diamonds, earning them a rigorous modern twist.
Coloured gemstones such as malachite, lapis lazuli and black onyx can also be seen throughout the collection, each one tailor-cut and individually polished to highlight their unique pattern and natural allure. The cloisonné and ronde bosse enamelling techniques are also commonly used as well as delicately moulding, sculpting, chiselling and polishing the most precious metals whilst studying the correlation between light, depth and reflection.
The ideas of structure and balance are at the heart of the creations, the designs capture effortless beauty transcending time by blending graceful romanticism and compelling symmetry.
