CRAFTSMANSHIP

  • DIAMONDS IN COLOUR
    A first for Forbidden City jewelry, the 2015 collection leads with coloured diamonds. From mystic black and chocolate brown to the rarity of green and canary, we masterfully echo the tones of the other stones that join the little treasures in perfect harmony in their 18 carat gold settings.

  • CELADON JADE
    Forbidden City strays from the norm with its long-time love affair with celadon green jade. Central to the collection for ten years, this shade of jade represents artistic freedom and fearless design. As a contemporary artisanal Italian jeweler, we artfully shape brushed Italian metal work with time-honoured jade carvings. The unique combination of shapes are inspired by post-modern living, while the jade carvings honor the traditions upon which we have built the brand.

  • MOTHER OF PEARL
    The sea enchants us, refreshes us, revives us, and most of all reminds us of romantic freedom. The collection features mother of pearl set around diamonds, sapphires, jade and intricate filigree work: a proper gang of choice materials. Juxtaposing the milky light and dark of mother of pearl with refracting light rays bending through precious stones leaves little to be desired in the way of nuanced self-expression.

  • BLACK JADE
    Leaving someone out is never nice. Rarity and exclusivity in the realm of Forbidden City function as design elements rather than overt snobbery. These elements highlight our ethos that simplicity is luxury, and discretion is the penultimate style. The choice of black jade, the diamond of all jades, takes its place prominently in our collection again as it has since our second year on this planet. Enjoyed by a select few who understand this stone for its inherent virtues and spiritual power, Forbidden City masterfully brings it to life by carving the shapes set in 18 carat gold in contemporary and unobtrusive styles.
