Featuring seven co-ordinated jewel-themed ranges, the distinctive RARE collection is inspired by discovery. Karen Wise from Bristan explains: The bathroom is a sanctuary for many people, a place where they can escape, relax and discover. We have scoured the globe searching for design inspiration to create a collection which we believe represents the latest bathroom trends. The jewel-themed ranges will now make choosing the right shower and taps for your bathroom a much simpler, stress-free process.

Designed to complement any suite, the RARE collection comes with a 15 year guarantee with every product. The seven jewel-themed ranges comprise:


Voluptuous, curvy and dramatically elegant, the Amethyst range oozes quality. The clever juxtaposition of a chunky, solid body and a sleek and slender lever handle gives it a distinctively modern style that will perfectly complement the broad-rimmed baths and basins that are popular in todays bathroom designs. Matching/coordinating taps, mixers and shower valve available. Prices start from 250 for a basin mixer.


Taking its inspiration from eastern bamboo waterfalls, Aquamarine offers a cascading water feature through an elegant slim-line open spout. Its eye-catching and unusual design is sure to get your friends talking. Taps and mixers are available in this range. The Peridot range of showers beautifully complements the Aquamarine design. Prices start from 220 for a basin mixer.


With a slim and slender body, Rubellite is a perfect partner for many modern bathroom suites. Its smooth, ergonomically-designed handle on both the taps and the shower control has been designed to be both stylish and easy to use. Rubellite also offers a stunning integrated shower where the shower controls are integrated into the shower screen and can be operated from both inside and outside the shower. The screen then sits snugly on a contemporary-design acrylic bath. Prices start from 200 for a basin mixer.


Sapphire is a fantastically versatile design for all tastes and styles of bathroom; a little square, a little round, topped with a tasteful, easy to use handle. Taps and shower controls are available in the range. Prices start from 175 for a basin mixer.


Square but smooth, Peridot offers European-influenced styling and a wide collection of products to coordinate your bathroom in both taps and showers. With a slim, flat handle and extended spout, taps in the range have been designed to sit elegantly on your chosen bath or basin while the stunning floor mounted basin mixer will add a dramatic focal point to your bathroom. Match with the eye-catching Peridot shower pole with individual square controls. Prices start from 250 for a basin mixer


Traditional with a modern twist, Coral features an opulent Italian-inspired neo-classical design. Taps and mixers feature a fluted spout and a choice of cross head or lever controls which are perfectly complemented by the coordinating shower bringing complete synergy to your bathroom. With a host of design features, Coral will sit perfectly on either a modern or a traditional suite and is available in either chrome or a soft French champagne gold finish. Prices start from 200 for lever basin taps.


A swooping feminine swan-like neck makes Citrine an elegant discovery when walking into the bathroom. From the basin mixer with a side lever to the beautiful floor mounted basin mixer, its slender curves bring a relaxing motion in your bathroom space. Coordinating taps and showers are available. Prices start from 230 for a basin mixer.

Moonhead Shower

Taking inspiration from the retro design of the Arco lamp, the stunning Moonhead shower will add a real wow to your showering experience.

Match with shower valves from any of the Rare ranges.

Aqa Shower panel

Available with a black or chrome panel, the Aqa shower panel features minimalist styling with plenty of showering flexibility. Match with a shower valve from any of the Rare ranges.

500 x 500 Fixed Head
