This collection introduces moonstone as the centre stone, capturing the iridescent beauty of the gem and exuding a sense of tranquillity like the Moon’s quietude.
‘Kino’, refers to yesterday in Japanese.
"It was only yesterday when you were by my side". This special jewellery collection takes inspiration from one of the short stories in a novel named <Men without Women> by Haruki Murakami.
The cat’s eye Moonstone here is depicted as the translucent icy moon in the story, half-sunken in the ocean on a starless night sky that stretches for miles and miles. Only the moon shines brightly on the still ocean water, showing gradient colours of white and blue which are portrayed here with a cluster of white, blue sapphires and aquamarine stones.
The moonstone is angled with the cat’s eye shining horizontally to express the gentle waves of ocean waters and capture the sentiment of the scene in the story.
