The new cabochons Kratiras and Hexagon are innovations of the NEREID Inspirations Autumn/Winter 2018-19 by PRECIOSA Crystal Components.
Greek for “crater”, Kratiras mimics the undulating surface of the sea floor as it’s continuously shaped by the current and unseen creatures that inhabit the deep. The stone’s uniqueness lies in its ugly-beauty, which provides the perfect twist to fashion’s fall and winter staples.
Available in one size, (25×18 mm), and in settings with one loop or two loops. The limited edition Kratiras cabochons comes in three colours: Smoked Topaz, Deep Sea and Jet coated in Brown Flare – all frosted. Suitable application methods include gluing, (no setting), and sew-on (in setting with loops).
The Hexagon cabochons was inspired by the effect created when light permeates water to dance on the scales of its sea creature inhabitants. The stone’s hexagonal shape and playful iridescence encapsulates AW 2018/19’s mood of overindulgence and our fascination with the hyper real.
Available in two sizes, (6×6, 8×8 mm), our limited edition Hexagon cabochon comes in two versions: Crystal and crystal coated in Vitrail Medium*. This stone is suitable for gluing.
* Vitrail Medium: The colour Crystal Vitrail Medium is an innovative, partially metallic-greenish iridescent coating.
