Statement making but beautifully wearable, M/G TASAKI features innovative designs and a fresh approach to the traditional image of pearl jewellery.
LARGE Necklace Yellow Gold Logo Plate / Freshwater Pearls
The London-based Franco-Greek designer, Melanie Georgacopoulos, initially studied sculpture and started working with pearls while completing a master’s degree at the Royal College of Art. She continued to explore the endless aesthetic possibilities of the pearl as the epicenter of the modern woman’s accessory. Seemingly vulnerable, feminine, yet tough and enduring, the pearl’s symbolic contradictions are juxtaposed throughout each collection with the application of innovative techniques and a surprising use of materials. The deconstruction of age old concepts about classic pearl jewellery anchors each collection; constantly defying convention.
Pieces include structured statement necklaces, intriguing double rings, earrings with pearls moving playfully inside 18ct gold diamond cages.

Melanie Georgacopoulos brings the pearl to new domains of art, architecture and high fashion, whilst retaining its quality as a wearable and ageless accessory.
