A) A claspless, opera-length chain of burnished platinum dangles an inch-round pearl hued ivory and carved to be a replica of the entire moon. The precious metal runs through a screw-eye bail of the same platinum that permanently secures the sphere with the help of rabbitskin glue between them. The eye of the bail is engraved with a mature rose bloom inset with a trilliant diamond. Rough-faced but smoothly carved pieces of selenite comprise the moon's seven other phases on each side of the orb. Light plays differently with the pleochroism of the pearl than the silky and vitreous lustres of the selenite.
This chandelier earring of mostly sterling silver is an inch long in total: half stud, half thin chains and their possessions. Eyes of white diamond glistening, the argent snow dove pierces the earlobe. The harmless avian is frozen in flight, specifically mid-flap, to gaze at the viewer at a downward angle. Broad, cascading, and faceted snowflakes of gleaming selenite hang from the bird's beak, wingtips, tail, and feet via thin chains.
C) Premier cashmere evocative of unsullied snow comprises the bulk of these imperial robes' exterior. Wings outstretched in lordly glory and mouth ajar in 09:06:24 silent portent, an ice dragon of celeste silk charmeuse and genuine white gold threading ascends upward from the right thigh to spiral around the midsection and shoulders before finally resting its legendary jaw above the heart of its host. Moonstone snowflakes and hail pellets of chipped aquamarine escort the creature, forming a turbid blizzard which scintillates with unremitting resplendence at any angle. Orphaned flakes galavant on the glaucus gusts assailing the wrist-length sleeves and floor- length skirt. Able to be tucked out of sight or left to dangle in the back, a rounded hood is almost large enough to envelope the entirety of an average human head. Slender blue-grey drawstrings crafted from sheets of tightly braided taffeta tighten the hood to the wearer's content. Alabaster ennelin fur lines the interior and rings the cuffs, hood, and skirt hem, its luxurious softness besting even that of the cashmere. Imbued with an ethereal iridescence, the tips of the feline pelage shift between glaucus and celeste. A braided sash fashioned from the same material snakes through five cashmere belt loops to rest against the natural waistline. Tactfully sewn into the inner lining of the skirt with cyan silk is a hallmark of the designer: a barely noticeable rose bloom cradling a trillion-cut silver diamond in its centre.
D) Premier taffeta silk reminiscent of virgin snow shimmers resplendently as it embraces the skin to form the majority of this wearable opus. Bereft of sleeves and straps, this regal gown is perfect for those wishing to not be overly confined. Its elegantly ruched, tightly fitted bodice boasts a plunging sweetheart neckline chastened by a generous trim of realistic rose blooms carved from massive white pearls. Refracting any light into a symphony of colour, a trillion-cut diamond lies safe within each gelid sculpture's centre. Several bisecting straps of alabaster rabbit fur caress the host's exposed back, producing a luxuriously soft corset effect. Thick hems trimmed with the same material resist damage with flair as tiny snowflakes hewn from flawless white sapphires titivate every inch of the silk. A floor-length mermaid skirt transitions from snug, scarcely adorned taffeta at its top into sloping expanses engulfed by generous layers of white sapphire dust. Petals orphaned by the timeless flora lounge upon the glistening terrain with gusto. Giving a sultry glimpse of the legs, the skirt is slit wide on its right side, the part acutely commencing at mid-thigh.
E) As primal as they are sumptuous, these women's peep-toe shoes possess an unorthodox elegance sure to commandeer any catwalk. Lustrous ivory satin sourced from rare tundric spiders caresses the wearer's insteps and ankles. Pristinely polished and as white as freshly fallen snow, the five-inch heels and visible frames have been fashioned from two rhinoceros femurs by a master sculptor. Despite their deviation from their original shape, the shockingly lightweight bones can easily survive tremendous amounts of blunt lines the interior of the shoes, providing luxurious softness and cushioning to wearer's gait. Adorned with a three-dimensional rose bloom carved from an eburnean pearl, a slender strap wraps around each ankle to hold the shoes in place. Princely in size and mesmerisingly radiant, a trillion-cut diamond claims its throne within the heart of each stunningly realistic corolla.
F) Ultra soft and supremely lustrous silk taffeta of argent cast comprises the majority of these elbow-length gloves. Scintillating mercilessly in the light, a two-carat, trillion-cut white diamond is implanted into the exterior of each knuckle, serving to both decorate and weaponise these otherwise innocuous gloves. The gloves cover the entirety of the wearer's hands and fingers whilst aprogressively thickening trail of argent pegasus feathers begins at mid-sleeve, extending to and encircling the cuffs. For the sake of modesty, the posterior of each sleeve before the cuff is left devoid of any adornments. Despite extending to the elbows, the sleeves cling tightly to the arms, allowing for the presence of bracelets and other wrist accessories. To ensure optimal breathability without sacrificing style, scores of perforations can be found only with a well-trained eye in select areas of the gloves. Serving to significantly increase the gloves' life and aesthetic appeal, the stitches holding the gloves together are on the inside when worn, invisible to the unaided eye. Barely visible, the quirks sewn into the base of each finger to improve the fit of the gloves have been cut from the same material used for the gloves' exterior and sewn with a fell seam so as not to show any threading. The designer's mark, a rose bloom clasping a trillion-cut gemstone, is internally embroidered with silver threading just two inches inward from each feathery cuff.
G) Shimmering taffeta silk comprises the foundation of these luxurious silver leggings. Three inches wide and two inches deep, a skin-revealing notch has been incised into each hip and carefully hemmed. Slender argent drawstrings crafted from several sheets of tightly braided silk close the deliberate gaps to the wearer's content. Refracting any light into a symphony of colour, a trio of trillion-cut white diamonds adorns each neatly hemmed cuff. Consisting of tenebrous taffeta, an illustration of a rose bloom cradling a trillion-cut gemstone is tactfully embroidered into the interior above each cuff.
H) Shimmering with unremitting resplendence at any angle, the dust of pulverised capri sapphires mingles with each visible thread of this celeste silk ribbon. Every square inch of this elegant ribbon bears a cluster of three diminutive, trillion-cut celeste topazes devoid of inclusions, their facets converting refracted light into waltzes of iridescent blues. Grander than its compatriots, one star sapphire cabochon of capri hue has claimed its throne at either end of the ribbon's anterior, a princely sum of twelve carats divided equally between these two imperious gemstones. Measuring three feet in length and just under two inches in width, this ribbon is highly versatile. The ribbon has been hemmed with a fell seam technique, thus reducing the likelihood that its edges will fray while increasing its aesthetic appeal. Tactfully embroidered into the rear centre of the ribbon with capri silk threading is a barely noticeable rose bloom bearing a trillion-cut celeste topaz in its centre, a hallmark of the designer.
I) Shimmering with unremitting resplendence at any angle, the dust of pulverised white diamonds mingles with each visible thread of this resilient white lace ribbon. Every square inch of this elegant ribbon's silk lace bears a cluster of three diminutive, noble-cut white diamonds devoid of inclusions, the gemstones' facets converting refracted light into waltzes of variegated colour. A hallmark of the designer, one trillion-cut white diamond has claimed its throne within a majestic rose bloom embroidered at either end of the ribbon's anterior, a princely sum of twelve carats divided equally between these two imperious gemstones. Creatures ranging from doves to butterflies are portrayed amidst a monochromatic vista of floral grandeur within this delightfully detailed accessory. Measuring three feet in length and just under two inches in width, this ribbon is highly versatile. Crafted with great deliberation, the ribbon has been hemmed with a fell seam technique, thus reducing the likelihood that its edges will fray while increasing its aesthetic appeal.
