ShowStoppers Our Top 35

Welcome to Showstoppers! A deep dive into our Statement jewellery pieces. From earrings to cuffs, chokers & rings, these are entrance making pieces that will own the room. Exquisite design detailing combined with considered proportions & refined craftsmanship give way to dramatic creations that adorn the body, akin to armour. Desirable & timeless, these are veritable ShowStoppers. Worthy of collection.

No. 1 - The Arm Vine

Entangled, thorny stems, hand-forged in silver, weave up the arm of the wearer; a visceral homage to nature when worn as protection from the outside world.

Fluid and elegant in form, but sharp and abstract as a concept, Arm Vine, when worn, materialises as bejewelled armour. It is designed to sit on the outside of the garment - like a coat of arms, or a silvered protector to the wearer - making it a unique and original approach to contemporary jewellery.

The Arm Vine

Arm Vine plays beautifully with negative space; in Leane’s story telling, it is never the bloom of the flower that gets top billing - stems, branches, and thorns alike feature as much in the romance and convey a dark mystery of the world.

No. 2 - Hook Earrings

The Hook earring is an iconic silhouette for the house and a bestseller. Defined by their knife-edge, creating light refracting facets on the jewel’s surface, their refined shape follows a powerful curvilinear line. An Iconic Hook is a true collectible featuring the family of hook earrings; all 7 editions is a pretty good place to start! Entirely versatile, wear in your own unique desired way.

No. 3 - The Quill Cuff

Architectural and archetypal, Quill Cuff is a statement piece and reflects on one of the core silhouettes of the House. A grid-like formation of five horizontal silver quills perfectly frame the wrist, generating a hypnotic almost op-art effect when worn.

No. 4 - The Sabre Fine Triple Ring

A dynamic cluster of tapered silhouettes enclose the finger, in three glistening sweeps of diamond pavé weighing a considerable 2.96cts. The clean contours of Sabre Fine, the gold accents and precious gem-set curves make this diamond cocktail ring a standout piece. A perfect adornment for evening, an undeniable conversation starter, and milestone piece to cherish forever.

No. 5 - The Statement Quill Choker

It doesn’t get more dramatic than this. A quiet rhythm, with underlying energy builds, in a larger-than-life dynamic Quill silhouette. The Quill choker appears menacing and sharp, but in fact it is in total sync with the wearer. The proportions and linkage between the individual Quills is not only considered but articulated, so they glide, capturing the light and illuminating the wearer.

No. 6 - The Sabre Fine Diamond Cuff

The feel of the piece is the premise with Sabre, our iconic silhouette. It’s provocative, daring & refined. And laden with diamonds, it is a stand out piece, worthy of collection. Sensuality and the tactility of leather is at the root of the design – informal and deeply sexy, against this backdrop, a dazzling 1.78ct silhouetted luxurious pavé facade, articulated beautifully. This has just a superb nonchalance about it.

No. 7 - The Cherry Blossom Pearl Necklace

They’re not called Power Pearls for nothing! Here we see statement making multi strands of pearls, with a flourishing & abundant twist. Glossy enamel blossoms with diamond stamens perfectly complement the natural luminosity of freshwater pearls. Romance, beauty & power all wrapped up in one.

No. 9 - The Sabre Fine Diamond Pendant

The Sabre Fine silhouette encapsulates a simple premise - the singular line on a curve. The genius is in the design, sharp & pointed, & the presence of the knife-edge that not only defines the facets, but allows them to be heavily laden with scintillating diamonds. Double rows of diamond pavé plunge the neck of the wearer, in a monochrome sweep with maximum impact. Deeply sexy, bold and courageous, its hand-finished facade brings drama to daywear and fast elevates evening.


No. 10 - The Rose Thorn Hoops

The allure of the hoop earring! Intricate pieces suspended in mid-air, bulbous, thorn-strewn vines in resplendent silver create harmonious, rounded silhouettes. A perfect alternative, and larger for impact, our Rose Thorn Hoops command attention. Made with real substantiality, a sense of weightlessness and movement is combined with the ferociousness and richness of nature’s strength & fragility.

No. 12 - The Quill Earring

The large Quill is high drama, high impact - immediately recognisable as the House of Shaun Leane. The porcupine-inspired shape is reverent to our House code: Line, dramatic spikes, androgynous cuts with a modern sensibility.

No. 13 - The Quill Wrap Ring

A daring and provocative silhouette, spiked Quills of yellow gold, gather and fire out in a glistening apparel, enveloping the finger all the way around. This ring makes a powerful statement.

No. 14 - The Interlocking Stacked Ring

The iconic ring of the House of Shaun Leane is re-interpreted as an interlocking, layerable jewel to be stacked, assembled and mixed; revealing a sliver of vibrant colour.

No. 22 - The Rose Thorn Statement Cuff

A glistening web of riveted, thorn-strewn burly vines in sterling silver enclose the wrist, creating a resplendent slip-on cuff, perfectly shaped to your wrist and tapered to your arm. Metallic, illustrious, in sculpted yellow gold vermeil, Rose Thorn's metal vines metamorphose into a modern-day armour, a powerful statement in magical fantasy.

No. 23 - The Rose Thorn Choker

No. 24 - The Serpent’s Trace Diamond Ring

The Serpent’s Trace Wrap Ring captures the majestic beauty of the mythological serpent.
