Family-run jewellery house Boodles has launched a brand new collection inspired by the work of artist Sonia Delaunay. The Prism collection mirrors the vibrant, rainbow hues used throughout Delaunay's work, featuring a selection of colourful gemstones and fine diamonds. The artist's 1914 abstract painting 'Electric Prisms' has particularly informed the collection, with the bold, circular shapes depicted in the painting providing inspiration for the sweeping, dynamic movement of the jewellery. Head of Design at Boodles, Rebecca Hawkins, was inspired to create the collection during a trip to the Cornish seaside town of St Ives where she encountered Delaunay's work at an exhibition. By combining the dynamic Orphism of Delaunay's work with the movement of billowing boat sails scattered across the St Ives bay, the Prism collection was born. The range features a tantalising array of bright colours, from yellow beryls to cushion cut tanzanites, lime green peridots and firey pink pear cut rubellites and prices start at £10,000.
