In the northern area known as ‘Artisan Hills’, opposite the beautiful church of Sant Miguel, and with gorgeous views over a valley, is a gem of a jewellery store and one of island’s greatest treasures, Natasha Collis Shop & Studio.
Nastasha’s work has a strong signature based on solid 18ct gold nuggets, individually and carefully shaped, and then meticulously matched with asymmetrical precious and semi-precious stones that melt into the gold setting to find their own harmony.
These handmade pieces – also made in white and pink gold plus silver – are designed to be casual but boast some quite serious gems including white, black, grey, brown and pink diamonds; rubies, emeralds, sapphires, tourmalines and spinels. These interact to create spectacular pieces in a magical spectrum of colours.
No two pieces can ever be made alike, meaning each is a unique collector’s item. Even the way you wear them is truly your own – stack multiple rings on the same finger or place a wedding ring in between two others. It’s very elegant to wear just one chain or bracelet, but to wear several at a time makes them look even more amazing.
The spectacular Natasha Collis showroom is housed inside a 500-year old building, and still retains original Ibicencan elements, such as the wooden beamed ceilings and stone floors, creating the perfect combination of antique chic, boudoir-style ambience and tradition.
