The Heritage Collection
Elegant pieces blooming with marquise cut bright sapphires, tourmalines and diamonds. This collection is a nod to the past with its marquise shaped gemstones and diamonds. The updated silhouettes make this collection a timeless classic with a modern twist.
The inspiration for the Heritage collection comes from a family heirloom that has been passed down for four generations. It is a necklace that was commissioned by my great-grandfather for my great-grandmother. This beautiful necklace has marquise cut emeralds and diamonds. As he lived in a small town in India gemstones were not as easily accessible. He collected multiple batches of emeralds over a period of time as they came his way. This process took him almost a year by which time he had collected enough matching emeralds to make a necklace.
I have always been fascinated by this story as it a story of his true love wanting to give his wife something so precious that would carry on his legacy for generations to come.
I couldn’t find a more suitable inspiration for the first collection than this, as this necklace is a symbol of love and dedication and that is what Ayva means to me.
