The Crystalline Jewelery brand appeared in 2013 thanks to the long-standing friendship of two girls – Kira Pohiton and Elena Kosenkova. Partners and friends are connected by a common fashion past: Elena was once a fashion editor at Vogue (later – director of the fashion department at Tatler), and Kira was a publisher there.
“We have devoted many years to work in the field of fashion, in gloss, thanks to this we have accumulated tremendous experience,” says Elena Kosenkova about her decision. “However, in the life of every person there comes a moment to take a step forward, often a step into the unknown. For us, this resulted in the creation of our own brand of jewelry. An important emotional impetus was the birth of children. Both Kira and I have very small children, and they encourage us to create, invent new things, develop.”
Having once wondered about the ideal decoration for themselves, the girls decided to offer a similar one to the world.
This is how the concept of the brand of jewelry appeared, which became stronger and acquired unique features in the process of choosing raw materials, which were crystals of gems and semi-precious stones in druze and geodes. All jewelry is handmade in Italian workshops. The first collection, whose central stones are amethyst and several varieties of quartz, was named after the foundation of mineralogy, the theoretical tool for classifying minerals – the crystal system. Crystall System – like the classification of crystals depending on their properties.
The stylistic basis of Crystalline Jewelery is ceremonial, but functional art deco with its interest in unusual textures, with its chiseled symmetry. In addition to semi-precious stones (quartz, amethyst or onyx) and ornamental minerals (as well as coral, stalactites and pearls), the brand’s jewelry contains leather strips, as well as colored ribbons and rhinestones.
Without exception, all Crystalline Jewelery jewelry is very large, and this is no coincidence. The fact is that, according to the creators of the brand, these are accessories for everyday outfits. You can wear necklaces, earrings and bracelets all day long.
