AKILLIS’ Python Collection returns to its first inspirations coming from ancient mythology. Caroline Gaspard created a line of jewellery derived from the story of Cleopatra, queen of Egypt. A woman of character with enchanting powers of seduction, it is said she used to wear live pythons around her wrists. In contrast with ancient Egyptian jewellery, the AKILLIS line represents the reptile by its purest essence: its unmistakable skin pattern.
With imagination flying high, the French brand offers its own version of the reptile, somewhere between precious wildlife and a futuristic carapace.
The gold and diamond scales curl around the fingers and wrists, drawing a beautiful portrait along the ears and undulating around the neck of the special person wearing a python jewel.
The collection conveys the warmth of the yellow gold and pink gold, and the coolness of the white gold and diamonds.
As always AKILLIS enhances the best of French traditional craftsmanship to give life to the most creative designs. Caroline Gaspard wanted the snakeskin aspect to be rendered true and authentic, putting into relief the skin pattern by way of a gold embossed design. The motif finds its maximum symbolic expression and becomes absolutely rock ‘n’ roll.
