Links of London’s new Orbs collection – shot on model Elfie Reigate by Laura Coulson against the ironwork structures of Kew Gardens – is an industrial and graphic take on renaissance; a directional reimagining of the freshwater pearl.
Elfie, daughter of supermodel and nutritionist Rosemary Ferguson, has an ethereal yet self-possessed presence that’s in tune with how the Orbs pearls reflect and enhance women’s inherent strength.
Luminous freshwater pearl orbs are set in geometric and linear silhouettes which bring a new sense of edge to their ethereal beauty. Each piece is crafted from strong, yet lightweight curves of silver which echo the naturalistic lines of modern gothic ironwork.
The eclectic juxtapositions of this collection evoke an assertive feminine energy. There is a fluid design rhythm in the interplay of the different sized pearls in contrast to the geometric angles of the settings.
