The von Bueren family, which set up Lotus Art de Vivre 30 years ago, is renowned for its attention to detail: some handcrafted pieces can take up to six months to complete. Recently, the Thailand-based brand launched the Scarab collection exclusively at Katharine Pooley in London's Walton Street. As the name suggests, the high jewellery pieces are made from the winged beetle that in ancient Egypt was seen as a holy symbol of birth and regeneration. Turning concepts about art and nature on their heads, Lotus Art de Vivre has created a stunning high jewellery collection, which includes a necklace made from scarab shells. The iridescent bright green colour, which shifts into blue when the light changes, is enhanced by white rose-cut and iced diamonds.
