Paulo Coelho writes a new chapter and presents his messages in jewelry form with PURE ICONS
I was in love with Paulo Coelho’s new jewelry collection from the first time that I had laid eyes on it. Maybe it was love, because he is one of my favorite authors.
So much more than the message appealed to me, because you can keep it with you, by wearing it every day.

The messages previously conveyed by his writing in the form of exclusive jewelry items.

PURE ICONS: The collection

The collection is made up of bracelets and necklaces. As is typical of Coelho, it is characterized by a purist style, the absence of the trivial, simple iconography and the perfect craftsmanship of a piece of jewelry. All pieces are made in Germany.
For the first Paulo Coelho PURE ICONS collection, quotes were chosen from his bestsellers The Alchemist and Aleph. The bracelets from the Aleph range and The Alchemist necklaces have been embossed in 925 sterling silver plates and are available in three different designs. Coelho’s words are delicately engraved on the jewelry in both Portuguese, his native language, and English. Fine decorative elements are incorporated into the black cotton ties. The bracelets are handwoven in two different sizes with 27 knots. The necklaces are also available in two sizes on beaded chains.
Whether timeless in silver or gold, stylish and elegant in fine rose gold, the PURE ICONS collection combines decorative arts, modern and stylish design and Coelho’s inspiring words in elegant jewelry.
