A fusion of fashion and fine jewellery
Smales is thrilled to present its new collection – FUSION – created in collaboration with new WA fashion label, Only One Ashley.
Born from an aspiration to create a collection of on-trend, attainable pieces, but with the ethos of quality craftsmanship still at its core, FUSION is the coming together of cutting-edge creativity and old-school master-craftsmanship; it fuses the old with the new, the traditional with the on-trend, fashion with fine jewellery.
Statement ear pieces – cuffs, jackets, vines and hooks – feature bold geometric shapes and sharp angles, evoking images from each of the seasons that inspired them. Symbolic flowers, ice shards, stark trees and fallen leaves all echo natural seasonal wonders. Stacker rings complement each ear piece design.
Crafted in 9 carat golds and sterling silver, and skillfully hand finished with diamonds, the workmanship and quality of the materials exudes luxury; these are pieces to cherish through the seasons. The hint of diamond sparkle on each piece takes the wearer effortlessly from day to night.
FUSION launches with five core designs, each consisting of ear pieces and rings. The bespoke positioning of the collection means any piece can be created in a range of precious metals, and ring sizes can be ordered as required. RRPs start at just $179 for a ring.
Diamond Lights. Comprising ear cuffs, ear bar and stud, as well as three stacker rings, a strong diamond-shape design is repeated across each piece. The set is crafted in 9 carat yellow gold with tiny diamonds providing subtle sparkle.
Diamond Nights. In Sterling silver with a bold, diamond-set square sitting just inside the ear, the Diamond Nights ear hook delivers understated glamour and can be paired with the matching stacker ring set.
Carbon Ice. The Sterling silver ear hook creates an array of ‘ice shards’ that fan out from above the ear. The symbolic shards are carried over into the stacker ring designs. Each piece features a single diamond.
Dawn-to-Dusk. The ear jacket and stud in 9 carat rose gold is a nod to the pink dusks and dawns of Spring and Autumn. The set is completed with striking stacker rings each set with a single diamond.
Born to Be Young. Embodying new beginnings and past recollections, the diamond-adorned Sterling silver ear vine is spectacular on the ear and comes with the subtle addition of a matching stud. Three diamond-set stacker ring designs complete the look.
