TITANIUM BALLOONS collection is a play between two contrasting parts – Between fragile balloons and durable titanium metal.
The use of titanium instead of gemstones is a fun and original way of modern jewelry-making. Titanium gets its volume by the press machines, and as titanium is one of the hardest metals, the pressing process takes up to four months to complete. The natural bright shades of titanium balloons have been accomplished by anodizing, a biocompatible and non-polluting process that doesn’t include using any dyes.
You shoot me down,
but I get up;
I’m bulletproof nothing to lose;
I am titanium.
TITANIUM BALLOONS collection pieces are a bold statement – pieces for someone who loves minimalism with a unique twist.
In this jewellery collection we use titanium shapes instead of stones, which are moulded in silver. We gave volume to the titanium by press machines. As titanium is one of the hardest metals in the world, the pressing process took more than 4 months. The titanium balloons have got natural bright shades, which have been accomplished by using anodising. In the collection you can find different sizes and shapes of earrings, rings, a brooch and a necklace. This collection was really a challenge for us, and we find it amusing – making light balloons from one of the hardest materials, titanium! The collection follows Monquér’s signature: sophisticated jewellery that embodies dimension and clean lines. Thinking through every single detail, there is nothing superfluous in Monquér’s jewellery.
