Valérie Messika unveils a solar and powerful Messika 2022 High Jewelry collection: Beyond the Light, an incandescent shower of gold and diamonds – a promise of eternal radiance. The Parisian Maison dreams up a unique and mystical journey. A magical odyssey where passion, audacity and excellence compose an entrancing and majestic collection of unparalleled artistry.
The Artistic Director perfectly blends her inspirations and know-how. Through a purity of form and graphic lines, an imperial look and exceptional stones, Valérie Messika conducts a retro-futuristic symphony subtly tinged with Egypt and its hypnotic mythology. Unique and innovative sets where diamonds are transformed from piece-to-piece result in a vibrant and mystic collection of jewels.
The Maison of Messika is writing a new chapter in its history with a remarkable 33-carat diamond, an extraordinary stone that illuminates the centrepiece of the 2022 High Jewelry collection. Valérie Messika dares to take on an unexpected challenge by creating Akh-Ba-Ka, a set with a design inherently inspired by ancient Egypt mythology and style, conceived in diamonds and white gold. The hero diamonds featured within the set are 15 exceptional gems cut from the same rough diamond of 110 carats.
In ancient Egyptian mythology, the KA symbolises vital energy and BA is representative of transformation, from flight to the afterlife. From the union of these forces springs AKH, the transfiguration of a person toward the light. Therefore Akh-Ba-Ka is transcendence, a fascinating epic of a rough diamond, as well as a story of transmission, family and unique know-how.
