The Petra Collection by Kara Ross New York brings to mind movement
and alludes to the idea of entities drifting and coming together to
create a harmonious whole. One of the most compelling elements of
collection is the juxtaposition of smooth and raw stones, which is
showcased side-by-side in many of the pieces; the combination of
polished and natural materials results in a truly distinctive design
that is both visually and conceptually arresting. A delicate and
jagged row of pave diamonds beautifully fuses together the smooth and
rough stones. This diamond accent is seen throughout the collection,
oftentimes presented in an innovative and unexpected way, whether
merging together stones in a pair of earrings or being utilized as a
setting for a cocktail ring.
Kara Ross is based in New York and the fine jewelry collection is
designed and handcrafted in New York City; the polished and “gritty”
design components in the collection also suggests the two sides of
the city that co-exist to create the whole destination. Precious
stones featured in the Petra Collection include diamonds, opals,
blue topaz, aqua marine, peridot, fire opal, green beryl, opal,
citrine, rubellite, green tourmaline, amethyst, moonstone, rock
crystal. Metals used include yellow, white and rose 18-karat gold.
The colors and textures of the stones refract the light in
remarkable ways, while also creating a vibrant and colorful display
of colors ranging from deep blues and vivid pinks, to dazzling
purples and a more neutral gold.
