“I loved working with Gigi. Her sense of detail and her discerning eye for fashion completely won me over,” says Valerie Messika, founder and creative director of one of fine jewellery’s most innovative contemporary diamond houses.

 

Messika invited Hadid to create a special collection series for the fine jewellery label that is also celebrating the 10th anniversary of its famed Move collection. What Hadid injected was a punk spirit to pieces that are all about stones in motion. “There are at least 16 pieces in pavé, non pavé in rose, white and yellow gold. Earrings, endlessly transformable necklaces, a choker, as well as rings and bracelets that are designed to be worn solo or stacked together,” says Messika who first became enraptured by diamonds as a toddler.

 

    

Her father, a leading diamond dealer, used to bring home stones and allow the young Valerie to play with the gems. Early learning paid off. After working with her father, Valerie launched Messika in 2005 and a Paris fine jewellery atelier and flagship soon followed.

 

“I am always looking for inspirations on my travels, through architecture, interior design - which I am crazy about - by walking in the streets and looking at people’s attitude and style,” says Messika. The Move concept has many dimensions and alongside Hadid’s line, finds anniversary pieces inspired by the work of industrial designer Ron Arad and graphics supremo, Leoh Ming Pei.

 

The beauty of all these pieces is that they don’t just sit there and dazzle, they move and play.
