In their rawest form, crystals are some of nature\’s most breathtaking formations, especially for the way they mimic the appearance of ice. In her new ‘Krystallos’ collection, Noor Fares untangles the relationship between geometric shapes and the healing power of crystals, and explores the ancient belief that crystals are eternal ice, suspended in time and imbued with cosmic power. In fact, there are dozens of cultures over the centuries that have believed in and employed crystals as a healing agent.
She achieves this exploration by capturing crystal shards in gilded cages, called the ‘Deia’ pendant, and showcasing glittering crystal settings in extraordinary rhombus-shaped ‘Nellum’ rings. In support of her rock crystals and rock quartz centerpieces, Fares completes her collection with a gorgeous array of luxe materials, like 18k yellow and gray gold, diamonds, lapis lazuli, amethyst, and, for the first time in her work, Mother of Pearl. You don’t have to be a rank-and-file member of the hippie set to appreciate the beauty of crystal, especially since Fares’ respectful treatment of the stone is so exquisitely appointed.
