Designer Polly Wales likes to set her gemstones in precious metals in such a way that the resulting effect has a “from-the-earth” aesthetic, like the stones are breaking through the surface of the gold.

Her designs are an eclectic mix of references from Byzantine and Indian jewelry as well as trends in high fashion, though the designer said that it is ultimately the women who wear her pieces who dictate how the jewelry evolves.

Wales unveiled many new designs in her signature collection at this year’s Couture show, as she transitions to using the process of lost wax casting for her jewelry.
