June 08, 2020: 'Neutra', the latest collection by Turkish fine jewellery designers Terzihan, is inspired by the raw beauty and unfettered forms of natural stones. In 'Neutra', the bountiful colours and proportions of natural stones are juxtaposed with textures inspired by ancient cultures of Europe and South America. Malachite, Agate, and Lapis Lazuli meet the pyramids of ancient Egypt, the asymmetrical structures of the Aztecs and the domes of ancient European cities, and the outcome is a distinctive collection of accessories that are colourful, modern, and edgy.

The mix of accessories in this collection boast clean lines, voluptuous curves and grand, 3D proportions that disguise neither beauty nor ambition. It is arguably the boldest and most remarkable creation of the eminent Turkish jewellery designer whose art is steeped in tradition and who after over four decades of existence, continues to wax strong as part of the avant garde.

'Neutra' is sure to strike a chord with women who prefer a sophisticated, pop-culture inspired style to their accessories. Without compromising on quality or statement effect, the accessories in 'Neutra' are highly adaptable and can easily be combined to suit a variety of settings. The collection is separated into four groups marked by the ancient cultures that inspire them. This includes the Cairo group which features gemstone half-moons flanked along the straight edge by rose gold pyramids interspersed with diamonds. There is also the Aztec group which have asymmetrical, 3-dimensional pyramids cast in Malachite and Lapis Lazuli, flanked on either side by generous sprinklings of white diamonds. The boldest accessories in this collection, however, are the maxi medallion pendants, with custom-made reversible gold bolt chains, and the bulbous 'domes of Europe' rings, featuring generous Black Onyx and White Agate domes, inlaid with diamond halos and centre stones.
