Australian designer Calleija and famed luxury car company Aston Martin are partnering to create an exclusive line of jewelry celebrating the Aston Martin legacy. John Calleija, who is of Maltese and Italian descent, imbues his beautiful pieces with a sense of true European style, and in 2000 was awarded with the De Beers Diamond International Award. The honor is considered the largest Design Award in the world. The designer consistently pushes boundaries, travelling the world to discover the best gems and metals and spearheading innovations within the field which includes his launch of the new “Glacier” cut for precious stones.
The Calleija collection of Aston Martin jewelry took six years to design and feature a fitting 77 pieces of jewelry with 30 different designs. The style was molded around the Aston Martin front grill and uses an Astar cut gemstone. Like the One-77 itself, the goal of the collection was a line of impeccably beautiful jewelry that embodied the prestige and perfection of Aston Martin. Aston Martin and Calleija’s partnership represents a new era of luxury lifestyle products. The blending of luxury brands defies the economic climate, and helps to give power to the individual brands by representing their qualities in a new way.
