Pragnell RockChic Collection
Created in Collaboration
Pragnell is proud to present a new jewellery collection, created in collaboration with stylists Olivia Buckingham and Emily Compton.
Crafted in 18ct white, rose and yellow gold and set with inverted diamonds, the collection of rings, earrings, bangles and necklaces fuses everyday elegance with a contemporary, unexpected edge.
Inspired by a Masterpiece
We were inspired by a one-of-a-kind Pragnell Masterpiece that features reverse-set diamonds, and wanted to explore the silhouettes created by these ‘upside-down’ stones in everyday, versatile and wearable jewellery.
Drawing on the modern way to style jewellery, the collection is designed to be stacked and combined with other Pragnell pieces and the wearer’s own jewellery, to create a unique look.
Rock 'n' Roll Rings
The polished gold rings come in a variety of profiles.
The classic eternity ring is given a modern edge with reverse-set princess-cut diamonds, reminiscent of the studs that adorn leather jackets and biker boots.
A domed ring, a flat-topped ring and a pointed, plectrum-inspired ring also feature reverse-set diamonds; striking whether worn alone or stacked.
A Modern Take on Earrings
Stud earrings feature 0.20ct or 0.40ct princess-cut diamonds, set upside-down.
These are sold as singles or in pairs, allowing women with multiple ear piercings to mix and match different sizes and precious metals.
Miniature hoop earrings are also channel-set with upside-down diamonds, offering a strong, punk-inspired profile.
Pendant necklaces see the diamonds reverse-set as a single vertical pillar, or three adjacent pillars, creating an architectural outline against a heavy rope chain.
Throughout the collection, reverse-set diamonds create a relaxed, off-duty effect. Light enters and reflects off the stones’ sharp angles, resulting in a subtle shimmer. The strong, angular contour of the diamonds takes the spotlight.
Each princess-cut diamond in the RockChic collection was selected by Pragnell’s expert gemmologists, who paid careful attention to their shape and proportions, as well as their colour, clarity and quality.
In order to achieve a clean, crisp profile, reverse-set diamonds must be identical in size, shape and depth. Pragnell’s gemmologists sorted through hundreds of diamonds to select only perfectly proportioned stones.
The pieces were made by hand in Pragnell’s workshops, using traditional goldsmithing techniques. Pragnell’s master craftspeople carefully position each reverse-set diamond into fine rubover settings, finishing each setting by hand. The simplicity of the design belies the painstaking handcraft that goes into each piece.
