YOLWAREE

 After a six-year hiatus, Yolwaree Sathyanawin comes back with a new collection for Yolwaree. The Ancient City Series Collection is inspired by two iconic historical sites – Garden of Babylon and Wat Arun. 


                   Garden of Babylon is a lost garden in Iraq, built by a former king for his beloved queen. The most outstanding parts are the steps and the gigantic terrace with large trees, as well as an extensive irrigation system, which was very impressive at the time it was built. The details of the steps are seen in the jewelry – rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Cascading design and pearls represent fertility and devotion to the beloved woman. Clear cubic zirconia represents the water that keeps the trees alive and the genius water pumping system. Step cut technique is used to make the stones look like cascading steps, especially made for this collection. 

                Wat Arun is an ancient temple built in the Ayutthaya era. It’s one of Bangkok’s icons and a masterpiece on the bank of the Chao Phraya River. The designer translates her impression on the temple and the dazzling details of its architecture into her design, inspired by the beautiful Thai patterns decorating the porcelain. Hundreds of authentic Thai patterns are found here under one roof. The dangling diamonds are inspired by the little bells found around the temple, creating beautiful jingles when the wind blows. The design is delicate but sleek, with signature geometric shapes
that Yolwaree is known for.
