Launching Agua: Waterproof Jewellery for the Modern Mermaid

waterproof jewellery by reliquia gold earrings

Salty and sassy, chaotic and calm, eternally mesmerising, overwhelmingly hypnotic: Reliquia Jewellery’s Agua collection summed up in ten words. 

Inspired by the deep, deep, deep, the latest range is an ode to the many traits (often opposing) of the ocean. While it hydrates and sustains, it’s also a force of nature, so unyielding and stubborn. Strength shines via statement gold chains and bold hoops; the modern mermaid squeals at the girlish shell motifs and Art Deco influences. We’ve fallen in love. Have you?

She Stuns in Sea Shells

It’s shells forever here. A long-running motif in Reliquia Jewellery collections, they celebrate a love for the ocean. We’re land-dwelling water babies, counting down the days until summer. In the meantime, we wear our favourite scalloped shapes on our ears – oversized and, at times, outré.

The Leilani Earrings are bucket-and-spade ready or blazer-and-trouser appropriate if that’s more your angle. The Kai Earrings are a literal interpretation of this pretty mollusc, an invitation to dream big and get out there. And the Mason Earrings are part-wave, part-shell, so energised and full of momentum (it’s hard to have a bad day when your ears look that good).

Art Deco Notes

Agua references the sirens of the sea as much as those of the screen. We imagine Elizabeth Taylor, Rita Hayworth and the rest of these eternally influential bombshells stunning in these pieces – then, now, forever. Angular patterns, curved edges, jaw-touching dangles and snake symbols, these are the makings of modern heirlooms. Timeless and transformable, the golden age is alive as we wear gold jewellery and stunning accessories to amplify every look.

Seek the statuesque size of the Wesley Earrings, the charming slithers of the Leonardo Earrings, and the boxy maze-style of the Savannah Earrings as your starting points. Finish the look with a gold necklace – special enough for the occasion, but staple enough for daily wear.

Waterproof Jewellery

Crafted from RJC-certified recycled brass and gold, Agua boasts another step forward – this is our first collection of waterproof gold jewellery. Using an environmentally-friendly PVD coating, each piece in the range is now more resistant to corrosion from contact with water, making it waterproof* and sweatproof for your regular swims, showers and exercise. 

We see you – by the seashore and stomping the streets. Tag us in your looks; feed our inspiration.
