The ‘Gladiator’ collection is inspired by the Ancient Greek and Roman idea of the Olympics and Champions, with each piece in the collection named after Greek mythological characters from the Odyssey and Iliad. Pieces include a dramatic ‘Aphrodite’ neckpiece; a ‘Zeus’ nugget charm necklace; ‘Odysseus and ‘Achilles’ bangles; and ‘Paris’ and ‘Iris’ earrings. Each piece can be made in Sterling silver, 22ct yellow gold, rose gold and silver plated bronze. The pieces are created to look like medals, using a Helix style repetition of form. This repetition connects with the core inspiration of Imogen’s collections which is rooted in minerals and natural stones taking the concept of natural minerals into a scientific form.
