At the heart of a unique high jewelry collection with two strong, spirited women. Using one simple word – freedom – the fashion icon and the diamond jewelry designer have collaborated with spontaneity and sincerity. By each harnessing the other’s art, they have been able to express the different facets of their singular personalities through unbridled creativity. Together, they have created a collection of high fashion jewelry that is expressively eclectic and defiantly diverse, which pays homage to a woman who has transcended generations and styles.

Everything began with a jewelry box. Kate’s. The colour, the oversized designs, inspiration from all over the world, and an art deco feel: a world that was, at first glance, quite removed from Messika jewelry, but ultimately extremely exciting for the designer. Two heads rather than one meant more than one hundred unique pieces of jewelry were imagined. Valérie was unwavering in her belief that the co-designed jewelry should embody both the Maison’s values and Kate’s style.

The movement of the stones, the fluidity of the lines, the suppleness of the jewelry, the boldness of the wearer… Together, they found a common language within the mixture of types of gold, various diamond cuts and even the way the precious materials were used. The collection is lively, eclectic and brightly coloured; and most certainly not boring. A daring decision? Probably. But an assured one nonetheless.
