We’ve already seen the first drop—a range of anklets—from the KBH × GAB collaboration between New York’s KBH Jewels and stylist and Modern Luxury contributing fashion editor Gabriela Langone, shown in our sister magazine Lucire Rouge last year.
As part of the KBH Wear Your Values charity campaign, a portion of proceeds from each sale benefits Pure Earth and their initiative to help rebuild the Amazon rainforest. The anklets, still retailing between US$600 and US$900, are made with 100 per cent recycled and reclaimed 14 ct solid gold.
The latest in the collaboration is the KBH × GAB diamond-cut body chain, retailing at US$1,850. It’s crafted from 42 in (106 cm) of 14 ct solid gold, and features an oversized clasp and ring finishes.
Langone styled the imagery, with Alle Johnson modelling, and Ben Watts behind the camera. Vehla Eyewear created the glasses Johnson wears.
KBH believes firmly in sustainability, and highlights that 400,000 lb of soil is disrupted in displaced in the mining of a single 1 ct diamond—which the firm notes is equal to 10 Manhattan city blocks. The gold in its range is 100 per cent recycled, its diamonds are cultivated, and its south sea pearls are organically cultured.
