Statement Jewelries: Le Victorieux Collection

                  It is the season of love and romance and I am more than excited to share my Le Victorieux Collection. We typically express ourselves through words and body language but this is quite different from the usual. Art is also an expression of love and that is the reason why this collection is all about passion, ambition, and mystery.  The entire collection is inspired by a different kind of new found love. It's exciting but injurious at the same time furthermore it dwells on a realist's point of view about love.


                 The Victorieux Collection is composed of pearls, different kinds of crystals and chains.

 Chained Constellation 


                   " How we loved star gazing at night" 
                This necklace is all about the love for gazing at the stars up above. It gives us a romantic connection between the world we are living in and the wishes that we whisper to the stars in the middle of the night.  

Beloved Choker



                   Beautiful things should belong to beautiful souls. If you have found someone whom you perceive as perfect with their imperfections then that is called one precious love. 

Vintage Captivation Bangle




                 Pearls are found deep in the ocean and crystals are considered precious. Inspired by unspoken precious love, I designed this bangle to express the devotion and adoration that every individual wants to find.


Anchored in Love



"Your love will keep me afloat but will remain an anchor in my soul"
Once you are captivated, there is no turning back, This necklace is made of assorted crystals. 


Smoky Quartz Bangle (quad)



                     Smoky quartz heals pain and establishes peace. It helps you row your past. As they say, the bravest thing you can do is love again. If it is worth the risk why not? Love is a beautiful thing and you should allow yourself to experience it.


GRATIA BANGLE


                   Inspired by grace, resilience and genuine love, I designed this bangle to mix elegance and simplicity. This work of art is made of smoky quartz, Russian beads and synthetic pearls.
