Jada it took all of two seconds for me to be on the website creating a wishlist!
Born to Turkish parents, CEYDA GUNGOR has been crafting her very own pieces of jewellery from Istanbul’s old town market, The Grand Bazaar, since her youth.
JADA captures the beautiful simplicity of precious and semi precious stones, which come to life when worn. Designed to be timeless keepsake pieces, her collection of necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings are made using the finest chains and bangles of yellow, rose and white gold, which are inset with diamonds, citrine and topaz stones to name a few.
“My inspiration is deep rooted in a passion for
beautiful colours and delicate shapes.”Symbolism plays inspiration to the collection, the various charms are not purely decorative; they also have a more meaningful significance. The small, diamond pave-set butterfly necklace with sparkling solitaires represents the preciousness of life, the ‘Evil Eye’ acts as a protection against harm and the ‘Letter Pendants’ with pave diamonds inset add a personal touch.
The names of the collections; Yelda, Zea, Reina, Changa and Juju all have a specific meaning to Ceyda, whether it be the name of her best friend who supported her in the launch of JADA or the name of her favourite restaurant which has inspired the pieces in the collection.
All JADA jewellery is hand-crafted in Istanbul using carefully chosen conflict-free stones. Sold originally through private clients, JADA is now available at Kabiri on the Kings road, Kabiri online as well as though www.byjada.com.
These strictly are wish-list only pieces,
but you never know; I might get lucky on a Scratch Card Sunday (£20 so far!)
