One of TER’s most eye catching pieces, The Driftwood Reversible Choker is made for the woman who is both bold and elegant; a leader by default, unafraid to defy convention, but does so with evident grace and dignity.
The Driftwood collection is all made from real driftwood. Through a seven step process, the wood is filed, sealed, and a plaster cast made, the wood burned out, and molten metal injected into the hollow space, to leave a perfect metal cast. This is then smoothed, buffed, and the edges softened. Silicone molds are then made of this first metal piece, and from those molds our designer, Jayne Moore, shoot’s wax models, exact replicas of the original wood, which she then cuts, layers and shapes into wearable forms, to cast back into metal.
Polished to high shine, to capture all of the delicious texture and natural movement of the bark, tortured and whittled by the ocean, with the naturally freeform edges left frayed and ends tapered.
This striking and unique piece just sparkles, with the different depths of texture playingwith light and contrast, it is an expensive and elegant accessory that manages to maintain an earthy subtlety.
This piece can be worn either reversed, squeezed to a snug fit, with the solid bar of bark sitting high and regal across the throat. A statement. Or wear it looser and lower, with the opening at the front, the raw and feathered ends tapering down, crowning the collar bone; sensual and refined.
Available in our 18kt Rose or 18kt Royal Yellow Golds, as well as our signature 10kt Yellow Gold — an underestimated Gold, very popular in Europe, this is a beautiful pale and creamy gold that shines brilliantly, and pops against most skin tones, being less yellow than typical 18-22kt Golds. Sterling Silver is also available.
Our Plated options are finished by a company we are so proud to work with, industry renowned and environmentally conscientious, we plate on top of Sterling Silver or Bronze for the larger pieces, and plate a heavy 2 micron 14kt Yellow and Rose Gold, and then use a nano-ceramic technology to seal and protect the finish, from scratching or tarnish, giving beautiful and lasting results.
Our signature Ruby is hidden on the inside of the piece.
