ROX, one of the UK’s leading independent luxury jewellers, has announced a collaboration with jewellery designer Catherine Zoraida. It is the first time the Scottish luxury brand has collaborated with an established designer to create a capsule collection.
After mastering her skills at Edinburgh College of Art, Catherine gained invaluable experience working with Theo Fennell, before creating collections for British fashion designers Vivienne Westwood and Matthew Williamson. Since establishing her namesake brand in 2012, Catherine has quickly established herself as one of the UK’s most exciting jewellery talents with her collections gaining high profile fans across the country, most notably the Duchess of Cambridge.
Inspired by star sign constellations, the ROX x Catherine Zoraida collaboration kicks off with the Zodiac collection that includes silver necklaces, bracelets and rings all hand finished with crystals in the shape of each constellation.
Commenting on the collaboration Catherine said: “ROX is one of the most fashion forward brands in the UK jewellery industry and we share our roots in Scotland, so I was thrilled to be asked to collaborate with them.
“Quality and craftsmanship underpin everything that ROX stands for and naturally that has huge appeal to me. I wanted this collection to be stylish, affordable and reflective of my own brand ethos. The Zodiac is a constant source of inspiration for me so it’s been an amazing experience seeing the collection come to life.”
ROX managing director Kyron Keogh added: “ROX is renowned for its fine jewellery and diamond collections but we also create the perfect jewellery for your everyday wardrobe. Our distinctive designer jewellery collections are a core part of our business and we wanted to liven up the offer with an exciting collaboration.
We approached Catherine as we love her vision and impeccable eye for detail. She has an innate understanding of the style of everyday jewellery women want to wear. The Zodiac collection is timeless, personal and can be worn alone or layered allowing the pieces to be a unique expression of style.”
The range is fun, fashion driven and affordable with prices starting at £45. Each piece is manufactured in 925 sterling silver and features specific attention to detail and quality which ROX is synonymous with.
The Zodiac Collection can be purchased online and at ROX flagships stores in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Newcastle and Leeds.
