Jewelry biodiversity

In her latest collection, “Chromatic Paradise”, the Mexican designer Daniela Villegas celebrates the fauna of her country, which represents 12% of the world’s biodiversity. Here we find axolotls, an endemic salamander, rubbing shoulders with frogs, beetles or porcupines all reinterpreted with flair, humor and fantasy.

  • The beetle is composed of several rings made of gold, emeralds, sapphires and amethysts

  • Baby octopus made of gold, diamonds, spinel and pearl

  • Axolotl bracelet made of gold, Mexican opal, rhodolite, garnet, sapphires and amethyst

  • "Columpio" necklace made of gold, tourmalines and tsavorites

  • Opal frog, on a ring made of gold and spinels

  • Real beetle surrounded by prehnites

  • Earrings made of gold, emeralds, tourmaline and porcupine

  • Caterpillar pendant made of gold, bicolor tourmaline and green sapphires
