There is an airy delicate lightness to these pieces, yet a modern simple appeal that carries over into even the most intricately constructed bit of I-nan Chen’s work.
After all before being a jewelry designer, the artist was also hand trained as a communications, graphic and product designer. We get the impression of flawless architecture and well-assembled lines at the first glance. The materials used for the Si Collections jewelry include semi-precious and precious gems, sterling (.925) silver, fine silver (.97), 14k gold-filled and solid gold, and gold vermeil sourced from all over the world, genuine metals, gems, and leather.
The designer seems to have a very personal relationship with the pieces, saying that he puts his heart into each item, and we must say that it can be felt. The beauty and the hues of the gems he uses fascinate him, and his design ideas stem directly from the source. Each item is handmade and sculpted. He points out that an Asian aesthetic can be felt in certain items, and it is true, however there is such an array of varying forms and designs that it would be unjust identify it by one influence. You can view and purchase Si Collections online at www.sicollections.com, where you will find jewelry such as earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets for women, men and kids, as well as bridal ornaments. In each category you will find several collections to choose from. Prices are reasonable, so you can select guiltlessly from the many charms and trinkets on display.
Simple elegance, the beauty of the stones, their intense and surprising colors and even more surprising combinations won’t leave you indifferent. I flushed in excitement when I laid my eyes on the 14K Gold-filled, Culture Pearl and Finest Turquoise Carving Rose earrings, with the Turquoise, Sterling Silver Tassel, Pearl necklace. “Turquoise is never off the fashion map” says I-nan, and I think he is right, because I fell head over heels for the breath taking and original Turquoise, Mother of Pearl, Jasper Beads, Leather, Sterling Silver necklace. I could go on, but you are better off taking a peek by yourself... there is enough coral, tanzanite, onyx, moon stone, topaz and more to take your breath away, just one bit of advice, have your credit card handy, you will need it.
