Diamonds and Pearls The ability to reinvent oneself and move with the times is key to success. The founders of jewellery brand Kamushki, Mariam and Dania Sawedeg, recognise the importance of staying relevant in the constantly evolving world of design and have therefore based their latest collection on one of the masters of reinvention, the late music legend Prince. Drawing on the art of transformation, the pair have taken their signature fish motif – a symbol of protection in Libyan culture – and reinterpreted it in a collection of diamond and pearl pieces, modelled by DJ and presenter Zara Martin. This is the first time they have cast freshwater pearls, sourced from Japan, into their designs, and they provide a touch of sophistication to the otherwise edgy and modern range of chokers, rings and earrings set in 18-karat gold. Diamonds and Pearls, from £360 for rings to £3,500 for earrings and chokers with diamonds, available at Browns, W1, brownsfashion.com
