Designed with sustainability in mind
It was important to both Orelia and Susan Caplan that sustainability be at the heart of this collection. Each piece from the collaboration is made with certified recycled brass and recycled 18k gold plating. Arriving in sustainable packaging and made in the UK, it is fully recyclable and biodegradable.
Sourcing from Susan Caplan's vintage archive
The vintage Swarovski® crystals in the collection are from Susan’s archive, discovered in an old warehouse. Exceptionally rare (and can confirm, extremely sparkly), the collection includes octagonal, princess cut, round and baguette shapes, dating back from the 1920s. For pearl lovers (this is Orelia, after all) pear drop faux pearls from the 1980s add a timeless elegance to the collection.
The leopard is back
This collaboration sees the return of our iconic leopard design. A true Orelia icon, the leopard has been reinvented with Swarovski® crystal baguettes and also in a classic door-knocker style. Arriving with a matching statement double leopard head necklace.
The packaging is sustainable
Sustainability meets style with our new Orelia LUXE X Susan Caplan packaging. Produced in the UK and fully recyclable, it’s the perfect finishing touch to the collection. (Also making it the ideal Christmas gift for the vintage jewellery-loving person in your life.)
