Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

Inspired by the opulent collars worn by ancient Egyptian royalty, Kate knew we needed to add these amazing stone composite collars and bibs to our inventory…and just look at what she did with them! Embellishing between the stones with Czech glass and metal dangles, she’s made a collar fit for a queen…or someone who wants to play one. In one of her most iconic roles, the violet-eyed beauty Elizabeth Taylor portrayed Cleopatra. Kate pays tribute to the notorious jewelry-lover, actress, and activist with this glam collar of purples and coppers. Enjoy!
