Thakoon Panichgul was in New York this weekend to present his first collection for Japanese jeweler, Tasaki. Thakoon said he wanted to bring a young, more contemporary edge to the classical jewelry collection known for its pearls. “It’s working with the materials, making them feel a bit more sculptural as well, and modern. I wanted to put some youthful spirit into pearls," said Panichgul of his first foray into jewelry design.
Thakoon's pieces include two-finger pearl rings and raw pearls on lariat necklaces with prices ranging from approximately $5,500 to $39,000 at the current exchange. For images of the collection, check out the gallery below.
