“The contemporary productions in particular really inspired me. There is a purity there that I’m especially attracted to. Watching the combinations and the shapes that dancers form is so beautiful.” Rebecca Hawkins

BOODLES DREAM-FILLED ‘PAS DE DEUX’ COLLECTION EXPLORES

THE FASCINATING DUETS AND DUALITIES THAT COMPRISE

BOTH ART FORMS

Marianela Nunez, principal
dancer with The Royal Ballet,
wears a matching set of
kite-shaped diamond
earrings, cuff and ring.
All the drama and energy
of a modern ballet’s
choreography is captured
with important kite-shaped
diamonds which mimic the
precise forms made by the
dancers on stage.

BEHIND THE SCENES

With privileged access to private
performances, backstage costume
rooms and rarely seen
archives for inspiration; Boodles has
created an expressive, yet abstract
collection of fine jewellery
that moves away from the more
traditional Ballet associations,
and concentrates largely on the
purity of dance itself.
