Translating to ‘heaven’ in French, the Paradis collection nods to the concept of heaven and how it has been represented in art and design since ancient times.

This bold new collection sees the introduction of strong striking colour, in the form of lapis lazuli. This beautiful stone has been sourced from Chile and is fully traceable.

“Lapis is a new stone for us,” says Meadowlark designer and co-founder Claire Hammon. “While we were searching for a particular stone, the bright blue lapis strands caught our eye and became the muse for this collection.”

“We have become obsessed with the vibrant lapis blue, which is also reminiscent of artist Yves Klein and his distinctive and intense brilliant-blue paint hue, and whose art has then inspired the entire collection.”

MAYA
Our muse stone in it’s boldest form. A series of necklaces, earrings and a ring. “We have taken the simplest form of the round lapis and added them to our minimal hoops in a https://meadowlark.co.nz/products/maya-hoops-small-9y: small size and an oversized option. And again with the Maya necklaces, two sizes for two moods. The Maya ring is a sleek flat signet-style ring with a beautiful cabochon centre stone.”

MICRO LAPIS
Our Micro Lapis which gives a nod to (and looks great with) our much-loved micro pearl pieces are a simple and striking string of deepest-blue beads, fastened with a silver lobster clasp. Striking and textural, but minimal enough for everyday wear. Available as a necklace, bracelet or anklet.

HERA
In perfect complement, the Hera styles are informed by the popular Solaire pieces from the previous collection, a luxe reimagining of the fluid lines in a smoother and bolder option.
Decadently chunky rings which feel distinctly modern and vintage at the same time and hollowed-out hoops in large and medium styles, which feel super 80s but new.

The Hera Double Hoops, which are designed for a single piercing but give the illusion of two piercings. A minimal, cool, unfussy mood.

And finally, the statement-making Hera Cuff, also for a single piercing, has an extra hoop to sit inside the ear to create a sculptural yet minimal form.

This collection also sees the reintroduction of some of our favourite styles that pair effortlessly with these new additions. Explore our Fob necklaces, bracelet and anklet, sculpture style earrings and signet rings as part of the Paradis collection.

Entirely made to order in our New Zealand atelier, we hope you love our Paradis collection x
