Known for releasing multiple collections per year with 28 pieces each, Parisian brand Djula is a world-renowned jewellery brand. Creative director, Alexandre Corrot, is known for the constant creation of diverse, high-end jewellery collections that are said to embody various female personalities. An anomaly in the jewellery industry, Alexandre creates around 200 pieces of jewellery each year with items from the Gypsy Collection being some of our favourites.
Jewellery by Djula is advocated by the likes of Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj. Each season, the brand partners with a different model to become the temporary face of the brand. Top models such as Barbara Palvin have previously featured in Djula campaigns.
In the Gypsy Collection, Alexandre imagined uber-feminine silhouettes and dainty materials paired with green agate and turquoise, nodding to the healing properties of these stones. Each piece effortlessly matches style with serenity to create fine, free-flowing pieces that appeal to even-tempered souls and carefree characters. Think fine chains, droplet hoops and paved stones.
Amongst the materials used in the gypsy jewellery range is onyx –– a stone known for its powers of protection and ability to harmonise one’s mind, body, spirit and emotions. Green agate similarly enhances mental and emotional flexibility while turquoise is said to be associated with spiritual grounding and positive emotions.
The collection can be worn to enhance breezy dresses, feminine florals and soft tailoring. Or, it can suit more androgynous styles by adding an element of delicacy to otherwise structured and dark outfits.
Although Djula’s Gypsy Collection feels most at home in high summer, the sentimentality of these pieces means owners will gravitate towards them year-round.
Unlike most jewellery, the Gypsy Collection assigns meaning to each piece, making purchasing a spiritual affair. For this reason, items in the gypsy jewellery range make for a perfect gift or act of self-care.
