Throughout time, winged symbols have been used to empower the wearer - Hermes' boots, Egyptian pectorals, the headdress of American Plains Indians. The Swift collection in silver and 18 ct gold continues this tradition.
John's ongoing fascination with feathers and flight found early expression in his winged tiara, seen here. In the Swift collection he continues this exploration of the power of flight.
Silver and 18 ct gold

The flow of lines across Swift give each piece a fluid, streamlined movement that continue and accentuate the jawline. As you move, the burnished edges glint and shimmer in response.
