A shower of diamonds: Boodles adds to its signature Raindance collection with a glittering new timepiece
Hurrah – it’s raining diamonds at Boodles this month. The British fine jeweller has expanded its Raindance Collection with a new fine jewellery watch, modelled by Arizona Muse.
The Raindance collection takes its cue from cascading raindrops. For the new fine jewellery watch, head of design Rebecca Hawkins looked back at a Chelsea Flower Show entry that inspired the original collection in 2000, which featured water droplets gliding down a marble sculpture.
This is reflected in a gleaming mother-of-pearl dial accented by dramatic diamond raindrops, reminiscent of falling rain glistening in the midnight sky. The intricate timepiece is also available with a vivid blue aventurine dial, matched with a blue, ethically sourced alligator strap.
Water is a reoccurring theme at Boodles, also inspiring the recent Poetry of Landscape collection. “I am drawn to water as an infinite source of inspiration due to its unstructured and ever changing nature,” said Hawkins. “The aesthetic of Raindance is characterised by the linear and directional nature of rainfall; yet it seeks to replicate the random pattern of raindrops.”
This marks Boodles second foray into fine jewellery watches, following the success of the Boodles Blossom Watch. Make like campaign star Arizona Muse and wear yours come rain or shine, for irresistible sparkle on winter nights.
