Jewelry For An Empress: The Sultanesque
In a time of mosaic wealth, cultures, religions and the center of East and West laid one of the largest and long-standing powerful ruling empires inspirited by Islam and at its peak included areas of Arabia; The Ottoman Empire. Inspired by it comes Sultanesque. An accessories line reflecting the Empire’s aged profound art influences from the Middle-East to Europe with a contemporary essence. A vision by two Turkish friends Havva Murat and Berrin Meric.
A clad mixture of 22k gold plated, semi-precious stones from around the globe and crafted by Turkish artisans makes up the pieces from Sultanesque just as the diversified powerful Ottoman Empire once was in a time where food trays were made from gold and towels were embroidered in gold threads. The artistic attributes that derive from the Islamic faith such as the intricate techniques, geometricity, leaf shapes and surface details can be witnessed throughout the pieces.
“Sultanesque presents an infusion of the rich authentic motifs and spectacular stones used during the Ottoman era. The timeless 22k gold plated jewellery are hand-crafted by Turkish artisans using semi precious stones sourced from countries all over the world. The combination of rough and raw textured natural stones form a compelling contrast to the delicate fabrics used in today’s fashion, making Sultanesque jewellery a desired accessory to compliment any outfit.“
