Today, a collection of letter silhouettes called “Chain Letter” is a brand mainstay, but the latest collection takes the motif up a notch.
“Alphabet Diamonds” is exactly what it sounds like: diamonds cut into the shapes of letters.
Hung on a 14-karat yellow gold chain, each letter is set in platinum prongs to give the appearance of the diamond floating on the skin.
K Kane offers two sizes—letters ranging between 0.25 and 0.3 carats are $2,400 per character, while letters weighing approximately 0.5 carats are $3,800 per character.
The range just launched on the K Kane website. Pictured at top of article and below are a necklace featuring the designer’s initials: K, K, N.
