Each week we’re taking you on a backstage tour to show you the inspiration and design processes that lead to the creation of our signature collections.
In this edition, we’re unveiling our passion for quotes and uncovering the thoughts behind every little detail of the popular "Quote Un-Quote” collection.
"Quote Un-Quote”: The Beginning
We’re suckers for quotes (who isn’t, really?) and we love the fact that there is one for EVERY situation.
What we wanted to try was to incorporate them into an outfit without touching on kitsch or going over-the-top.

"Quote Un-Quote”: The Design Process
After creating the Love You to the Bone collection, we felt like taking a step away from silver and focusing our attention on gold.
So we started toying with the idea of using the 66/99 shapes on delicate 18ct gold rings.
Little by little, this idea gained traction and was ultimately expanded into a full range.
"Quote Un-Quote”: Open To Interpretation
Isn’t it fascinating how people can listen to the same song, hear the same quote or read the same book and interpret them in a wildly distinct way?
We want our pieces to have the same versatility, to enable them to be incorporated into any look and to be a piece of jewellery that changes with you.
For example, the Pearl Pendants or "add-ons" for the QUQ Stud Earrings are long enough to be worn either at the front or behind the earlobe. The pendants are detachable and can luxuriously transform the look of any stud earring resulting in endless styling options.
