AZLEE Jewelry Draws Inspiration from Ancient Civilizations
Ludivine’s favorite pieces from the American jeweler include their delicate diamond-embellished pendants featuring zodiac and animal themes.
Though hand-crafted with the modern woman in mind, these necklaces are reminiscent of Byzantium and Ancient Greece, when gold coin necklaces represented the height of fashion. Some AZLEE pieces would fit effortlessly among 1st-century pendants from the reign of Justinian the Great.
The Zodiac Small Diamond Necklace is embellished with the twelve signs of the zodiac. Inspired by ancient Rome, when astrology could determine who ruled empires, the coin necklace effortlessly combines old themes with modern craftsmanship.
Capturing the Hollywood Golden Age
Again, other AZLEE pieces succeed in conveying the past, this time through thoughtful Art Deco detailing. At Ludivine, we appreciate several necklaces’ and earrings’ unmistakable Art Deco flair conveyed through geometric shapes and contrast.
These pieces seem to suggest early 20th century Los Angeles — Old Hollywood glamour at its height —yet are infinitely wearable.
AZLEE Jewelry Is Infinitely Wearable
Few artisans combine the glamour of fine jewelry with wearability as successfully as AZLEE jewelry.
The line’s hand-crafted emerald pendant compliments a Gabriela Hearst dress as well as a Ciao Lucia top. Similarly, diamond earrings can dress up a flattering pair of Tu es mon TRESOR jeans and fit with a demure Emilia Wickstead piece.
