The inspiration behind the Platinum Day of Love exclusive jewellery pieces
Platinum Day of Love celebrates the moment that takes’ love for a couple to its crescendo. Poonam’s main inspiration was the rarity of platinum and the concept in itself. The centre of inspiration for this design is the Celtic knot, a symbol that is also referred to as the mystic or endless knot. The spiritual meaning of this symbol alludes to ‘eternal bond’. The piece has been accentuated with tanzanite and diamonds that complement the sophistication of the metal.
The pieces have been crafted bearing in mind what the couple would truly cherish as an heirloom and will be reminiscent of their Platinum Day of Love. The design for the woman has a pendant and chain using mother of pearl at the core of the pendant. This is interwoven with platinum holding ornate tulip petals as tulips are universally known to symbolise ‘perfect love’ and there are doves behind – a design that can be worn on special occasions. The main pendant can also be unhooked and the chain with the hearts, at the hook at the back, can be moved to the front, making it ideal for daily wear.
For the man, there is a bracelet and to keep it masculine and elegant at the same time it has industrial links with just a touch of diamond. The link that is common with the woman’s jewellery piece is the Celtic knot as a link on the side.
