The Polki Diamond Collection is a new range by Black Betty designer Kristin Weixelbaumer for lovers of diamonds imbued with powerful energy. Taxidermied birds showcase the designs in this beautiful and unusual lookbook shot by Lar Leslie and styled by Retha Erichsen.
A polki diamond is a naturally earth mined diamond that maintains the same value worldwide making it a shrewd investment. The stones became popular in ancient India where brides required an affordable alternative to expensive diamonds. Kristin travelled to Jaipur, India, to set the wheels in motion for this new collection. All of the pieces in the Polki Diamond Collection have a natural aesthetic and the stones are simply set in 14-carat gold. The collection includes rings, bangles, earrings, a necklace and a bracelet, and no two pieces are ever alike.
Having always owned few jewellery pieces and accessorizing herself modestly, Kristin’s delicate range is a true reflection of her take on jewellery. See the full range at www.blackbettydesign.com.
