Jewelmer Joaillerie officially launched its exclusive partnership with renowned designer Wynn Wynn Ong at Asia Society in New York.
The event showcased the first five pieces of a capsule collection titled Jewelmer by Wynn Wynn Ong.
“We have grown through the years, evolving beyond merely a pearl farmer, beyond being a jeweler.” said Jacques Christophe Branellec, Jewelmer’s Executive Vice President and Deputy CEO, “What we are presenting to you is no ordinary Jewelmer collection. We have pushed the boundaries of pearl design with this collection.”
When Wynn Wynn Ong partnered with Jewelmer to create the collection, her goal was to create pieces that highlighted the pearls’ perfection through settings that remained true to her style: organic and highly textured. The designs of the pieces are a reflection of Philippine myths that reflect the place that has become a home for both her and the family behind Jewelmer’s legacy.
With brilliant coloured stones, Wynn Wynn Ong’s designs highlight Jewelmer’s signature South Sea pearls, brought to life through the expertise of their master craftsmen from Place Vendome, Paris.
“We were both interested in elevating what we did to art and creating one of a kind pieces. At the same time, we share the same values.” explained Wynn Wynn Ong, “This partnership is a first for both design houses, but what we are bringing today is the work of one family.”
Jewelmer by Wynn Wynn Ong will only have a limited number of pieces available worldwide. “This is just the start. It’s painstaking, but it is the start of what we hope will be a long collaboration.”
