is the ultimate destination for the world's most
extraordinary items. "Brilliant" showcases the finest diamond jewellery
considered to be innovative one-off pieces. It is structured into four artistic
disciplines –
art, architecture, fashion and sculpture
. The exhibition is geared
toward selling, and private inquiries about the collection can be made via
info@bochic.com in the US.
Bochic jewellery (known for its work with Karolina Kurkova, Angelina Jolie,
Salma Hayek, Rihanna, Scarlett Johannson, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Chastain
and more) has been chosen as one of the 25 best of the best designers from
around the world. In honour of "Brilliant" British born designer and Creative
Director David A Joseph created a collection labelled
"
Caged Beauty." The 2012
Bochic "Caged Beauty" collection encapsulates the far-East meets Moscow—the
Bochic woman's journey on the Trans-Siberian railway. Inspired by the historic
Silk Road which was known for connecting trade routes between
Asia
, Eastern
and
Western Europe
, there are hand crafted elements like miniature carved
mammoth ivory figurines, illuminated by gilded cages of oxidized gold and
diamonds – illustrating how the trade activities brought together cultures that
would otherwise have stayed separate much longer, and the allure of new
discovery through her eyes. The cages are a metaphor of the Bochic woman
who is being seduced by the visuals outside the train windows.
Diamonds are timeless. By employing them in an updated way - by mixing
different cuts and colours - I can highlight other materials, thereby making the
design the main event. Diamonds are most intriguing to me in their organic
state, just as you would find them in nature and along the route of the Silk-
Road. They still have their brilliance, but are more mysterious and captivating.
—David Joseph, Creative Director –

According to Carol Woolton:
"With the Queen's Diamond Jubilee putting a
spotlight on the Crown Jewels and historic Royal Regalia, "Brilliant" will show
how diamonds, imbued with their own billion year old history and majestic role
in Britain's heritage, remain relevant in our modern lives and at the forefront of
ground-breaking contemporary design."
Following the exhibition, the complete Bochic Caged Beauty Collection will be
launched exclusively with Annoushka for the UK market - both online at
http://www.annoushka-jewellery.com/ as well as in the boutiques located at
