THE HAIGHT ASHBURY COLLECTION
This October, Rachel Balfour Jewellery launches its highly anticipated new collection at the prestigious Goldsmith’s Centre in Farringdon. The stunning collection is a modern interpretation of a 1970’s vibe and is influenced by the pop artist, Peter Max whose work defined the 1960s and 1970s art scene.
Named after Haight Ashbury, the area of San Francisco famous for being the birthplace of the counter-culture movement and the 1967 ‘Summer of Love’, the collection consists of a rising sun, a heart holding peace sign and a dove – all fine jewellery with a beautiful, refined and timeless edge. Key pieces include chunky gold signet rings – including a classic heart signet, an exquisite emerald heart and an oval peace ring. There are three disc designs which include the ‘Dove’, the ‘Cosmos’ and ‘Peace’; all are available as rings, necklaces and bracelets which can be pave set with diamonds or rubies or enamelled with blush pink, lapis blue or black.
‘I hope these timeless, fine designs will be loved by free spirited women for generations to come. The pieces are designed to last many lifetimes and will hopefully be kept, cherished and passed on, keeping the spirit of the ‘Summer of Love’ alive.’
The Haight Ashbury Collection will be available from rachelbalfour.com from October 31st, 2018.
