Refractive Dust Jewellery Range

Whether it’s the Neon, Organic or Sticks and Stone range, Situ’s unique approach to designing jewellery has caught our attention once again, this time with the Refractive Dust collection. Inspired by turbulent, intergalactic dust storms and a desire to work with new materials, jewellery designers Philippa Green and Ida Elsje, together with architect Gregory Katz, have combined precious metal filings, resin and diamonds to create a magical new range of rings. We all know that diamonds sparkle when they catch the light, but with the combination of precious metals and the use of facets in the resin, the light particles are refracted twice, allowing for a ‘double refraction’ and, ultimately, a beautiful result. The Refractive Dust ring collection ranges between R3 500 and R8 500. Visit Situ’s studio, Olive Green Cat at 76 Church Street, Cape Town. The studio is open from 8am until 5:30pm.
