EXOTIC MATERIALS, CREATIVE DESIGNS

Let’s face it – when it comes to fashion, uniformity is not the statement we want to make. Jewellery has the power to speak volumes about one’s personality so why do so many still settle for mass-produced?

It’s time to be bold! Jewellery has the power to make or break an outfit and The Reserve has recently discovered a fresh jewellery maker out of super-chic Monaco called Lotus Noir (Black Lotus) that will help you break out of the ‘same old’ mould with statement pieces to adorn your ears, fingers, necks, wrists and more.

Since 2012, Carmen Papadimitriou has been designing Lotus Noir jewellery that is inspired by a mixture of her Asian and European origins. Her signature pieces combine stingray leather, python skins, ostrich and other atypical jewellery materials with precious and semi-precious stones to create a unique contrast of textures. Like the women who wear them, each piece of Lotus Noir jewellery is a unique creation. It is this combination of leathers, gems, metals and luxury fabrics with creative designs that give Lotus Noir its distinctive look, and it’s what first caught our eye.

SETTING STANDARDS

Although combining leather and gemstones may sound like a relatively simple undertaking, it has only been in recent years that this marriage has been successfully executed in luxury jewellery making. While a number of famous jewellery brands have tried and failed to achieve a high level of quality, Lotus Noir has been recognised by the industry for its innovative processes and creations, setting new standards for jewellery makers and consumers alike.

Lotus Noir is most notably recognised for its signature collection of haute couture jewellery pieces that combine stingray leather (Galuchat) with precious stones. Dubbed “an ode to the underwater world”, stingray collection pieces include rings, earrings and brooches made of gold, set with precious stones alongside the exotic beauty of stingray leather that has been tanned and dyed in an array of fashionable colours. With inherent qualities that make it resistant to water, fire, puncture, tearing, and abrasion, stingray leather has been used throughout history for everything from handle wraps on swords to high quality wallets and handbags – and now jewellery.

GIVING BACK

Fashion isn’t Carmen Papadimitriou’s only passion. A portion of Lotus Noir profits are donated to NAMASTE, the Nepal Monaco Cultural Association. NAMASTE was created in October 2009 under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II with a goal to raise awareness of the Nepalese culture in Monaco and Europe, to improve the living conditions of the Nepalese people (especially in the areas of education and health) and to support projects for economic development implemented by the villagers while ensuring their autonomy respect for the environment. You can read more about the work of NAMASTE on the organization’s website by clicking here.
