Ozymandias

Ariana Boussard-Reifel's namesake collection is jewelry, inspired by the ancient and reimagined for modern life. All our designs are produced by hand using sustainable and ethical practices in New York City.

This end-of-year collection is inspired by Percy Bysshe Shelley’s 1818 poem Ozymandias about the fallen greatness of ancient civilizations. Motivated by the British Museum’s acquisition of a massive Sphinx, Shelley describes the discovery of the statue and imagines the power it once possessed. As with past collections, Ozymandias is ruled by a conversation between cultural refinement and complex and ancient tribalism.
