ABOUT THE COLLECTION

A celebration of strength

Each Spirits Bay piece is a symbol of achievement, a celebration of your own inner strength, or a gift to be given in recognition of remarkable grace under pressure. Inspired by a natural symbol of resilience, Spirits Bay is designed to be worn and given to those who share a spirit of strength.

THE DESIGN

A mystical shell

Designer Christine Hill’s fascination with Totorere shells, found in New Zealand's Spirits Bay, began some 50 years ago. These shells are worn down by the elements until only the strongest part remains, leaving an elegantly curved, ring-like shape. Christine began collecting and sketching them, transforming these mystical shapes and bringing them to life in precious metal.

"I believe the purity and simplicity of the design speaks to the spirit of strong women everywhere."
