Design Nebu Bracelet, Loren Nicole
Though a fast-up-and-coming brand, Loren Nicole carries a 10,000-year strong legacy of jewellery making. Founded by archaeologist-turned-designer Loren Teetelli in 2016, her house’s collection of ethically sourced gemstones and gold jewellery seeks to translate the spirit of ancient civilisations into modern and wearable pieces. Looking back to the bygone eras of Rome, Egypt and South American, the brand even replicates the traditional forms of jewellery-making. This bracelet, part of the Ancient Egypt-inspired Nebu Collection, is handmade from 22k yellow gold to depict the famous Horus Will Be King story from Egyptian mythology. They say there’s nothing new under the sun, but there’s a novelty to how Loren Nicole’s jewellery rediscovers the past.
