If you enjoyed the extended daylight hours of yesterday’s Summer Solstice and want to capture the positive energy of the pagan festival for the rest of the season, then you need to check out Noor Fares’ latest collaborative collection with Auverture.
Timed to launch exclusively on the jewellery site yesterday to mark the longest day of the year, Noor Fares’ The Energetic Collection is a limited line of talismanic jewels. The earrings and pendant feature shards of rock crystal, which is prized for its healing properties. Crystal fans – including Noor, who is a reiki healer as well as a jewellery designer – believe it promotes positive energy and cleanses the spirit of harmful blockages.
Holding the rock crystal in place are faceted 14ct gold snakes topped with green tsavorite gems. Noor took inspiration from the classic jewellery motif ouroboros – the image of a snake eating its own tail, much favoured by the Egyptians – for the stylised settings and earring posts.

Noor says she hopes the jewels, which are available exclusively through Auverture and limited to 50 pendants and 25 pairs of earrings, will help wearers to “connect with their intentions”.
The Noor Fares The Energetic Collection also has a philanthropic focus. All proceeds raised from the sale of the jewels headed to the Auverture United platform, which “advocates for collaboration, craftsmanship, and sustainability in the independent fine jewellery industry”.
