Messika’s new high jewelry collection, ‘Beyond the light’ is a love letter to ancient Egypt, spotlighting authentic details and majestic diamonds to pay tribute to one of history’s most celebrated eras. While the whole collection, which was unveiled in Paris during Couture Fashion Week, is mesmerizing, it may be safe to say that the most alluring set from the line is the Akh-Ba-Ka, a milestone creation for Messika.
Bringing together a constellation of 15 radiant diamonds—all of which originate from one 110 carat diamond—the Akh-Ba-Ka set doesn’t just stand out for its immeasurable beauty, it also makes its mark as a modern must-have via its transformable pieces and technical innovations. Valerie Messika, founder of the Messika brand, it comes as no surprise, is especially proud of the Akh-Ba-Ka set, which also sublimates the mythical theme of the Egyptian winged scarab, a motif that’s hard to miss.
Crafted over 1,000 hours by experts, the set relies solely on diamonds and a base of white gold, and may be the star of the collection, but that’s not to say that the rest of Messika’s ‘Beyond the light’ collection is plain in comparison. Among the jewelry house’s newest creations is the Golden Shield, another noteworthy investment piece for those who love making a statement with their baubles. This daring set brings back the allure of yellow gold with its brilliant gold choker and geometric carved earrings.
Below, take a closer look at the beautiful creations that bring together Messika’s latest high jewelry line.
Handmade from a yellow gold plate, this set reiterates Egyptian history that gold is divine and a symbol of immortality, much like the radiance of the set itself.
