Parade’s luminous polished sapphire pieces capture the imagination: glowing sapphires in organic shapes (high polished to a lustrous, glistening sheen) are framed in gleaming gold with sparkling sapphire and diamond accents for a truly decadent look.
Creator of the sapphire styles (and Parade co-founder) William Pung found inspiration in an extraordinary parcel of finely polished tumbled sapphires, a step beyond the slices popularized in recent years. The soft color combinations and unexpected natural shapes appealed, inspiring visions of floral, organic beauty. The typically hard sapphire stones look soft, fluid, and liquid, allowing for a design aesthetic that is sculptural yet soft.
Gems are thoughtfully chosen for the most extraordinary shapes, rejecting 95% of available stones, with only the finest five percent going on to final creations. Each style is inherently one of a kind, created around these each carefully selected gems.
