TVRRINI unveils Thera inspired by the beauty of Greek islands and mythology
Introducing THERA, a collection of stories inspired by Greek islands and their mythology. Across three series--Kara, Lava, and Nisi, the vibrant jewels are delicately crafted to show our fascination with nature taking over structures. The result is at once charming and sophisticated.
Read on to find out how we started the collection.
Inspiration behind the gems
We were in Thailand while coming up with the idea for a collection based on Greek mythology. Stories of human nature strike our imagination. It became a collection of three series, or chapters, inspired by the events of Thera that have fascinated people for centuries. Once we had a look in mind, we experimented with mixing colours and shapes, which led to a concept for jewellery that could be versatile and distinct.
The collection is lovingly crafted from 18K rose gold and colourful stones. Each design is handmade and features vibrant shapes to create an array of effects.
Kara is all about the illusion of fruits that are freshly picked from a harvest. The name translates from the Greek word for "joy" and symbolises the hope that new seasons bring, the constant cycle of life. Shop the Kara series.
(COMING SOON) Lava interprets the volcanic eruption that resulted in the formation of Thera, which we now call Santorini. These earrings connect vivid turquoise slices with fiery accents to give a sparkle to your eyes.
(COMING SOON) Nisi, which means "island" in Greek, carry the shape of cities. Designed for elegant and versatile styling, you can turn the pendants to show different sides and secure the earrings with alternate faces as you feel.
We show our imagination in flight as a way to turn ancient stories into creative, sophisticated accessories.
