When you stare into the shimmering depths of more than 100 black Australian opals that cluster together amongst shooting strips of diamonds and sapphires in Alessio Boschi’s Rays of Stars jewellery suite it is easy to cheat gravity and feel transported to another dimension.

The magic of a starry night is captured in gold and diamonds on ceramic in the Cosmique de Chanel collection.

Theo Fennell has also been looking to the stars, updating the brand’s iconic key pendant with deep blue sapphire pavé set in rhodium-darkened settings, livened up by a celestial scene of white gold stars, a crescent moon and what appears to be Saturn tilting on its axis. The key is completed with a 3.15ct sapphire cabochon at the base of the key.

Other designers have been inspired by star shapes: Fei Liu’s Starburst earrings set a pair of asscher-cut diamonds at their centre with an explosion of smaller diamonds spreading outwards from blackened posts; Noor Fares has created rose gold three-dimensional stars studded with brown diamonds that drop down from earrings in its Geometry 101 collection; Portuguese jewellery brand Mimata has evoked the shape in a variety of ways using gold and diamonds within its Stars collection.
