Innovative and fine jewellery brand, Kavador, has just announced the launch of their $40,000 Manicure Collection. If you ask why a manicure costs that much, the answer is simply. Beside a one-of-a-kind manicure, you’ll get matching one-of-a-kind Lewis ring which is considered to be a work of art among fine jewelry and art collectors. Designed by the famed New York jeweler Seaman Schepps, it’s striking in both size and texture with 40 meticulously sized and placed stones for a total of 27.50cts of sapphire.
Schepps client list includes President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the Duchess of Windsor, and members of the Du Pont, Mellon and Rockefeller families. Known as “America’s Court Jeweler”, renowned art collectors, notably Andy Warhol, Joan Quinn and Holly Soloman, became devout collectors of his work. Seaman Schepps’ jewels are sought after by collectors and prized by families who pass them on as family heirlooms.
The luxury manicure is provided by NYC’s leading nail artists at Vanity Projects.

As the crown jewel of the $40K Manicure Collection, the Lewis ring evokes much excitement so it was important to take pause and absorb the power of its simple yet incredibly complex design. Striking navy and liquid gold highlight the curves of the oversized sapphire dome. A clean contemporary style was purposefully chosen to extend the look of the Lewis ring and ensure the nail art did not compete against it for attention. Small gold studs adorn each nail further enhancing the intricacy of the prongs holding the sapphire stones.
