Ruby Star – Jewellery from Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv jewellery designers, Ruby Star, have produced an exciting new collection of unconventional jewellery based on watches.  Ruby Star’s ‘Framed’ collections take the forms of old timepieces and chains to explore the tension between past and present, romance and extreme . The result is a collection of remarkable pieces which make a sensual yet intelligent statement.

Every piece is produced and fabricated in Tel Aviv, with the sculptural pieces all created using unexpected material. The watches are mainly art deco inspired frames in different shapes and sizes recast in brass, with the innards removed leaving only the surface. Black onyx stone settings, gold-filled chains and black silk chiffon fabric complete the designs, to give the pieces depth and texture with an elegant raw edge.

The gold and black color schemes give the atmosphere of ancient Egypt. Voids created by the unfilled frames are filled by the body of the wearer, who then plays a significant role in the effect of these statement accessories. We think these pieces conjure up the ancient and the modern, dark glamour and mystery. Wonderful.

Ruby Star pieces are available in Japan, USA and Canada. See www.sarafan-tlv.com for more information.
