Larkspur & Hawk’s founder and designer, Emily Satloff, enjoys antique jewelry as a lot as we do – and I do not say that flippantly, my darlings.
Her most up-to-date release, Larkspur & Hawk‘s Luzia Assortment, is an homage to a person certain class of antique jewellery, a model and origin that makes most collectors of 18th century variations weak at the knees: antique Portuguese jewels.
The use of subtly shimmering, foiled-back gemstones is Larkspur & Hawk’s aesthetic signature. The method is pretty strange to find in up to date types and it is one more indicator of designer Satloff’s passion for blending the exclusive attractiveness of antique jewellery with modern day design and style concepts to produce soft, romantic, utterly unforgettable new styles.
Glance at the lush, charming gems of the Luzia Assortment – they glow like sunrise suffusing morning mist. Light, inexorable, attractive.
An avid collector of 18th century Portuguese jewellery, Satloff named her latest assortment Luzia, which indicates “sparkling light” in Portuguese. She is really apparent that her goal is to reimagine, not reproduce:
“Even if a single wanted to, it would be a futile activity to attempt to recreate what some believe to be the finest illustrations of 18th century jewellery. As with considerably art from the earlier, its magnificence and greatness continues to be in the fingers of time, and first, period of time illustrations must go on to be sought after and admired.
Even so, as a designer and lover of record, it is imagined provoking to pay back homage to specified areas of antique jewelry in my fashionable patterns.”

The Luzia Selection is beautiful. Softly glowing foiled gems supply a multitude of dreamy color combinations with foiled lemon quartz, foiled citrines, and foiled lavender moon quartz accented with diamonds, rainbow moonstones, sapphires and tsavorites for extra vibrancy and sparkle.
The foiled lemon quartz resembles chrysoberyl, a favored substance in 18th century Portuguese jewels, although the foiled citrine resembles Imperial topaz and the foiled lavender moon quartz evokes opaline glass. All inspired by the past, but using its design and style factors to produce a little something fresh and new.
The necklaces are the hero items (in particular the very simple-to-adore cushion oval necklace in the initially image above, which I’m dying to have) but I basically consider the earrings are going to be the most well-known component of the assortment.
Accessible in a selection of types from very simple dangling drops to Queen Anne-inspired clusters to big, vibrant hoops, any pair of the Luzia Collection earrings are destined to grow to be a most loved in their foreseeable future owner’s jewellery rotation. The dreaminess of the foiled gems is incomparably pretty and appears lit from in just, flickering with tender fairy luminescence in any environment.
Just glimpse at these carefully iridescent pinks and purples. If they really don’t phone to your internal rock-collecting goblin self, I don’t know what to present you.
I have been a enthusiast of Larkspur & Hawk’s function for a long long time, but I have hardly ever penned a full site put up about them until eventually now. The Luzia Collection was just so magnificent that I could not resist! A deserving tribute to a area of interest category of antique jewellery that retains a unique place in lots of of our hearts.
What do you feel of the Luzia Assortment, my darlings? Do the necklaces simply call to you like they contact to me, or is it the earrings that catch your eye?
