Both collections feature fancy-coloured stones paired with a combination of diamonds and vibrant gems in complementary shades.

The Marine collection delves even deeper into the wonders of the oceans. The passion for the collection evolved further with a series of Pavit scuba diving into the waters to catch a closer look at her inspirations. The brightly coloured marine world has been reflected through the rich shades of the jewellery creations. It was important for this collection to capture the spirit and essence of the oceans. For Pavit, this meant creating the most extraordinary jewels, using signature techniques such as the pairing of fancy shaped stones with round brilliants, and the use of intriguing colour combinations.
