Remember when the movie “The Great Gatsby” first came out? All of a sudden we found ourselves obsessing over the “Roaring Twenties” with all the pearls and feathers, Leo DiCaprio’s perfectly gelled side-part and the sickening theme song “Young &Beautiful” by Lana Del Rey. And I can tell you there were at least 10 separate occasions that I had to swallow my own vomit when I saw photos of people throwing their own Gatsby-inspired events like birthdays, anniversaries and fashion parties. Bleurgh!
But we’ve moved on and when someone mentioned Gatsby or “old sport” my ears don’t bleed anymore. I even said yes to the invitation by Comyns to attend the launch of their Twenties jazz-inspired jewellery collection.
Comyns commemorates this great era with its latest Art Deco-inspired jewellery collection. A combination of grace, femininity and strength, Jazz captures the mood of 1920’s American social elegance and enjoyment of life before the Great Depression.
Combining solid geometry and fluidity, Jazz is a great portrayal of the streamlined form which is classic Art Deco. The geometric fan motif which defines the Jazz collection is a contemporary take of the fan motifs from the Chrysler building in New York City, one of the most iconic Art Deco skyscrapers in the world. Wow!
Comprising of wrist cuff, earrings, ring and two pendant designs, Jazz is a collection for women of all ages. Made of sterling silver and crafted by Comyns artisans through traditional English methods of silversmithing, every creation of Comyns carries four hallmarks to certify its quality; the William Comyns hallmark, the fineness of silver content, the assay office mark and the date letter or year of assay.
This new collection is available at Comyns boutiques in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Suria KLCC, Bangsar Shopping Centre, Royal Selangor Visitor Centre and selected Royal Selangor stores. The collection is priced between RM590 and RM1,550. Go get yours today!
