With a strength and robustness recalling the majestic solidity of the centuries-old sandstone Angkor temples, this bangle sits on the arm sturdily, encasing the arm or wrist with its smooth, voluptuous form.
The Bangle reflects Kbach elements, a traditional decorative element in Cambodian architecture, carved in relief on the walls and columns of Angkor’s temples as well as on traditional Khmer silverware. The simple beauty of the kbach chan, a decorative flower motif, in particular, takes shape in various simple forms, delicate but strong.
Handcrafted in sterling silver, this bangle takes 7 days of hand-working by a single artisan, forging and hammering the silver into its shape. The sandstone Kbach chan elements are separately hand-carved by a sandstone carver from locally-sourced grey sandstone blocks.
The KHMER collection pays homage to the lost kingdom of Angkor and its ancient temples. In the collection, Angkor’s monumental architectural legacy is represented by inimitable legacy pieces inspired by Angkor Wat’s structure, sandstone walls, tall columns and intricate bas-reliefs. Crafted in sterling silver and locally-sourced grey sandstone, the pieces are solid and timeless, made to last a lifetime and beyond.
