From foreign policy to fine jewellery
Mahnaz Ispahani Bartos, once active as an expert in foreign affairs, now specialises in issues of a smaller kind: gems. Her Mahnaz Collection is a premier source of jewellery from the 1960s and ’70s – eras that are clear influencers in today’s more fluid fashion styles.
“These are vintage pieces with a contemporary relevance," she says. Her meticulously curated collection includes a 1970s Boucheron cuff and necklace in 18-karat gold and Andrew Grima’s ’60s amethyst-and-diamond ring, also in 18-karat gold, shown here.
