THE NEREID COLLECTION

Finding truth in the words of legendary French explorer, Jacque Cousteau, who famously remarked: “The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever,” our Autumn/ Winter collection, entitled Nereid, explores the darker theme of recognizing beauty in forms not altogether worldly. This assortment of novelties and the wearable context through which they are presented harks back to the archaic image of a sea nymph and simultaneously deconstructs it, calling attention to the decadence of designed experiences and hyper adornment.

NEW COATINGS | NEW PLATING

AW 2018/19

CRYSTAL LAVA

A dreamy mixture of red, orange and pink hues, Crystal Lava provides the perfect pop of color and warmth to an otherwise inky fall palette. Its oversaturated tones give the coating a tantalizing, almost erotic nature able to enliven any winter weather-ready piece. Crystal Lava is now part of our catalogue offer of coatings for our premium quality, lead-free MC Chaton MAXIMA and MC Chaton Rose MAXIMA product lines.
Crystals

CRYSTAL RED FLAME

Crystal Red Flame is bitter and metallic, and the perfect balance to sweeter, citrusier tones. A luxury brand staple, the rich scarlet shade of Red Flame gives a touch of opulence to every piece it adorns. Crystal Red Flame is now part of our catalogue offer of coatings for our premium quality, lead-free MC Chaton MAXIMA, MC Chaton Rose MAXIMA and MC Heart MAXIMA 1H product lines.

RUTHENIUM

A chic setting for any color or coating, Ruthenium plating provides a subtle yet strong statement with its cold, chrome-like sheen that gives an underground, fetish-y feel to any seasonal accessory.

LIMITED EDITION CABOCHON

AW 2018/19

KRATIRAS

Greek for “crater,” Kratiras mimics the undulating surface of the sea floor as it’s continuously shaped by the current and unseen creatures that inhabit the deep. The stone’s uniqueness lies in its ugly-beauty, which provides the perfect twist to fashion’s fall and winter staples. Available in one size, (25x18 mm), and in settings with one loop or two loops, our limited edition Kratiras cabochon comes in three colors: Smoked Topaz, Deep Sea and Jet coated in Brown Flare – all frosted. Suitable application methods include gluing, (no setting), and sew-on (in setting with loops).

NEW COLOR

AW 2018/19

DEEP SEA

Inspired by the naturally occurring color of lapis lazuli, an intensely blue metamorphic rock used as a semi-precious stone since antiquity, Deep Sea is entirely unique and a market first. Its opaque nature gives Deep Sea a sense of maturity that feels almost augmented, making it an interesting yet elegant color staple for AW 2018/19. Deep Sea is now part of our catalogue offer of colors for our premium quality, lead-free MC Chaton MAXIMA and MC Chaton Rose MAXIMA product lines.

NEW FINE JEWELRY STONE

AW 2018/19

AVENTURINE

Inspired by mythical sunken treasure lost long ago to the murky abyss, our glass Aventurine is speckled with flecks of gold intended to perfectly replicate the shimmer and texture of natural aventurine quartz. Stunningly smooth and with its creamy coloring, Aventurine is the ultimate in effortless enhancement. Available in our catalogue offer of Nanogems sizes and in round shapes, our glass Aventurine comes in two colors: Gold and Blue.

LIMITED EDITION CABOCHON

AW 2018/19

HEXAGON

The Hexagon cabochon was inspired by the effect created when light permeates water to dance on the scales of its sea creature inhabitants. The stone’s hexagonal shape and playful iridescence encapsulates AW 2018/19’s mood of overindulgence and our fascination with the hyper real. Available in two sizes, (6x6, 8x8 mm), our limited edition Hexagon cabochon comes in two versions: Crystal and Crystal coated in Vitrail Medium. This stone is suitable for gluing.

NEW COLORS

AW 2018/19

SMOKED SAPPHIRE

A more washed-out version of its classic namesake, Smoked Sapphire is starker and eerily reminiscent of lake water. Its cold undertones give it an otherworldly feel, leading the imagination down a dark fanciful path, which coincides nicely with AW 2018/19’s anticipated catwalks. Smoked Sapphire is now part of our catalogue offer of colors for our premium quality, lead-free MC Chaton MAXIMA and MC Chaton Rose MAXIMA product lines.

ERINITE

The perfect balance of intensity and restraint, Erinite’s greenish-blue hue is both strikingly elegant and elusively intriguing. Its purposefully faded look gives the stone a natural vintage flair making it a sublimely must-have embellishment for any fall or winter wardrobe piece. Erinite is now part of our catalogue offer of colors for our premium quality, lead-free MC Chaton MAXIMA and MC Chaton Rose MAXIMA product lines.

NEW COLORS

AW 2018/19

PEARLESCENT

These cool Pearlescent hues play tribute to the submarine ecosystems that house fantastical and conceivably disturbing creatures still undiscovered by the human eye. Used together these colors create a wonderfully chilly palette, perfect for an after-dark adornment. Pearlescent Grey, Red, Violet, Blue, Green and Peacock Green are now part of our catalogue offer of Pearlescent colors for our premium quality, lead-free Nacre Pearl MAXIMA product line in all sizes.

NEW PRODUCT

AW 2018/19

CRYSTAL PURE

Like sunrays sparkle on the heaving waves, Crystal Pure exquisitely reflects the color of whatever lies beneath it. The stone’s absence of foiling allows the base fabric to shine through, albeit in a beautifully distorted manner that gives any garment or accessory a subtle yet interesting twist. Our premium quality MC Chaton Rose MAXIMA hotfix version is now available without foiling in Crystal and Crystal coated in AB in 12 sizes.

NEW SHAPE

AW 2018/19

FANTASY

Though it’s widely accepted that symmetry is inherently pleasing to the eye, the chaotic angles of the Fantasy shape give it an intriguing edge that draws the viewer reluctantly in. Able to create endless geometric patterns, the Fantasy is a stone intended to make a statement. Available in three sizes, (12, 17, 24 mm), our Fantasy flatback sew-on stone is part of our premium quality, lead-free MAXIMA product range and comes in three versions: Crystal, Crystal coated in AB and Jet.
