Alice Cicolini celebrates craftsmanship at every turn with her eponymous line, but it’s the artistry of enameling that truly shines through.

Marrying contemporary design with time-honored jewelry-making methods, Cicolini’s works are wax-carved in her London studio before being sent to India. Here, they come to life in the hands of Jaipuri meenakari, versed in traditional Persian enameling. Candy-colored emerald cabochons, hand-carved watermelon-colored tourmalines and ethereal lavender-hued moonstones also take centerstage in the designer’s sculptural pieces, sharing the spotlight with 22k gold and hand-carved ebony and maple.

As a former curator and commissioner for the British Council in India and the U.K., the Central Saint Martins-trained jeweler honed in on how national characteristics are represented through design. Cicolini’s works have shown at London’s V&A, the Zaha Hadid Gallery, Asia House and Bungalow 8 in India; she is also the author of “The New English Dandy,” an exploration of contemporary British dandyism.
