While Kendra Scott’s Summer Collection dipped a toe into the idyllic seaside escape, our High Summer Collection takes a head-first dive. Intricate, hand crafted expressions of coral add a playful movement, while pops of colorful opals and romantic baroque pearls embrace the eclectic palette of the ocean floor. A collection of treasures so detailed and vivid, you’d think we pulled them straight from the sea.
Read on for more behind the design of High Summer 2017.
WHITE BAROQUE PEARLS
The beauty of natural pearls has always inspired Kendra, and this season we are excited to bring back our cultured baroque pearls. With a slight button shape and a subtle organic finish, these pearls have a raw elegance as if taken directly from the sea.
Kyocera Opal is a lab grown, stabilized opal created to mimic the dazzling structure of genuine opal. This stone takes 12 to 14 months to produce and is never dyed. Like a kaleidoscope of color seen in a summer sunset, the flecks of color within this stone create a beautiful iridescence.
CORAL BRANCH MOTIF
Our intricate coral branch motif was hand crafted in our studio, by fusing together petite bars of metal and then filing the edges down to create an organic impression of natural coral. From delicate accents on a long necklace to statement earrings, this motif highlights Kendra Scott’s innovative techniques and skillful design.
