"Evolve, Transform, Mutate." – Is the mantra of a new collection that sees five precious objects designed as jewellery boxes, the box then becomes the jewels, and each set tells its own story...

You aren't imagining things – this is a greenhouse of enamel plique-à-jour with gold structures forming geometric motifs, as well as the 'Secret Garden' collection by cult jewellery designer, Solange Azagury-Partridge.

As delicate as the small bird on the roof that's ready to fly away, the walls – once taken apart – form two identical cuffs for the wrist and the roof becomes a bowl for marshmallows. The floor is paved with diamond, opal and obsidian and, when pulled out, its centre becomes a pendant.

Solange box open

A miniature Orangerie inside the piece displays trees and a bench, and some shoes that have been left behind after a party. An umbrella is left in an elephant foot stand "in case it is raining when guests leave"... A hothouse sittings on a lotus leaf made of rose quartz and aventurine, no less. That's our kind of party.
