Make a statement with new Corali Jewellery Collection

I’ve always been fascinated with the ocean and everything that lives within it and The Corali Collection is a brand-new selection of fine jewellery pieces inspired by my lifelong love of the world’s coral reefs and created in collaboration with American favourites, Ciner.

Known as ‘the rainforests of the sea’ due to their diverse ecosystems, coral reefs are filled with beautiful colours creating a rainbow under the sea. It’s this amazing colour palette that inspired the Corali collection, creating 8 different edits all inspired by a unique theme from Jewels of the Ocean to Pink Corali.

Rachel Bates Corali Jewellery Collection

Featuring brooches, earrings and necklaces, each edit is designed to perfectly complement one another so that you can mix-and-match to create your unique Corali look. With so many colours to choose from, the world is your oyster.

Similar to The Maltese Cross collection, my Corali pieces were designed and created in collaboration with American fine jewellery specialists, Ciner. Our two design houses were first introduced back in 2017 as we developed a mutual admiration of each other’s designs and brand style.

After the initial introductions, we decided to collaborate on a few concepts I had created. So, the next stop was a visit to the Ciner atelier located in the heart of Manhattan where our two teams spent time bringing my concepts to life.

Working with Ciner has been a real treat and getting a first-hand look into their rich, 127-year old heritage was truly inspirational. It took both design houses a lot of hard work and passion, but we’re pleased to announce The Corali Collection with its 8 unique edits.

The Pink Corali Edit

The 2019 Pantone Colour of the Year is Living Coral, so it’s the perfect time to release our Corali collection. Representing diplomacy, pink coral is said to quiet the emotions and bring peace within. Spanning the centuries, it has featured as jewellery in ancient Egypt, The Roman Empire, during the Renaissance, the Victorian era and by the hippies of the 60s and 70s, so it’s clear that Pink Coral never goes out of fashion.

Featuring cuffs, necklaces and earrings, this edit adds an extra statement to your outfit, whether you’re heading out for the day or preparing for a night of cocktails. Filled with timeless elegance, the Pink Corali Edit will channel your inner Daisy Buchanan, Grace Kelly or Cate Blanchett.

The Red Corali Edit

Red coral is said to absorb negativity, strengthen your mind and encourage romance. There must be some truth in this as I can’t help but fall in love with this edit every time I see it.

Inspired by elements of the byzantine era and combined with a mix of Georgian and Napoleonic designs, this edit is filled with timeless pieces designed to be worn and passed down to the next generation.

The Corali Branch Edit

The heart of the Corali collection, the aptly named Corali Branch is where the other edits stemmed from. Inspired by coral mainly found in the Mediterranean, this edit features beautiful pieces that can be worn every season. After all, coral reefs are present all year round.

Over 50 years ago, Ciner created pewter casting from real pieces of coral, but these were unfortunately never used. For this edit, we brought the castings out of the archive to be used for the first time, creating a truly unique edit.

The Jewels of the Ocean Edit

Inspired by the beautiful Caribbean island of Barbados, this edit focuses on pale white sands, crystal clear blue waters and the turtles and marine life living nearby. Featuring earrings, brooches and pendants, the jewellery in this edit holds a special place in my heart.

Whether you’re looking for something that adds a subtle sparkle to your outfit or a more extravagant statement piece, this edit draws on the tranquil, peaceful waters to complete your wardrobe.

The Pastel Corali Edit

Featuring subtle and soft pastel tones, this Corali edit is inspired by the crystal-clear waters and sun-drenched golden skies usually found by beautiful coral reefs. The palette combines colours including seafoam green, Indian sapphire and warm topaz tones to create gentle pieces that sit well on any skin tone.

Filled with cuffs, brooches and earrings, this edit is the perfect accessory for a long lunch with friends. Created to truly turn heads, this edit was designed to be worn and cherished for years to come.

The Turquoise Waters Edit

Consisting of just 3 pieces, this edit creates an elegant and beautiful look that never fails to captivate. Combining pearl and turquoise with a dash of crystal, this set is timeless, elegant and adds a touch of luxury to any wardrobe.

Featuring earrings, a bracelet and a necklace, this stunning three-piece is perfect for every season and is designed to be worn today, no matter the occasion.

The Coco Reef Edit

This edit was designed for glamour and inspired by opulent colours of yellow, white and brown corals. With a classically rich colour palette, The Coco Reef Edit is a must-have for every elegant lady.

Filled with necklaces, cuffs and brooches, this edit can be worn all season round and looks just as good on a summer dress as it does a cashmere polo neck.

The Icy Sea Edit

Moving away from the tropical corals, The Icy Sea set takes inspiration from the marine life residing within Antarctic waters. Below the surface lies a hidden multi-coloured world rivalling the gorgeous coral reefs that I love so much.

Hues of silver-grey pearls, dove-grey enamel and set on gold, The Icy Sea Edit is filled with elegant, sophisticated and chic pieces, perfect for a lady who loves a bit of timeless glamour in her life.
