The label was conceived to showcase Luka Pasikowski's designs which combine a sense of volume with surface decoration and unique settings. The result is modern works of art, in which beauty is achieved by combining precious metals, gems and designs that boldly interpret classic motifs.
Cardnal of London offers unique, bold collections for fashion conscious individuals who appreciate elaborate craftsmanship, luxurious metals and jewels and cutting edge design. The logo, the Minotaur (Minotaur Ring), incarnates the intense energy of the brand's design, the beauty of a mythical creature in modern form.
Luka's jewellery is the work of a distinctive hand, formed by his background as a sculptor as well as a jeweller and his signature is an innovative way of mounting in a sculptural form. His latest works draw inspiration from mythology and renaissance architecture, with statement pieces and also smaller creations such as carnival-esque rings, grotesque charms and sculptured earrings.
Cardinal of London's exquisite 'Jewelled Horse' design won an award at the Goldsmiths' Craftsmanship & Design Awards 2012. Each 'Horse Ring' is a singular work of art beautifully sculpted with individual hand-engraving and finish. The 'Black Sapphire Horse', rhodium plated silver with a silver hand-engraved caparison and black sapphires mounted in the eyes, is a treat for the armour-obsessed fashionistas or just fans of sculptural jewellery. The design alludes to the precious concepts of chivalry developed from the horsemen in medieval times, embodying gallantry and strength. In form, a sculptural, 3D design reinvents this concept to achieve a striking, powerful but wearable objet precieux for 21st century jewel lovers.
Each Cardinal Of London piece of jewellery is entirely hand-crafted in London.
