The Trend Edit: Geometric Jewellery
Posted on 05 July 2017
Geometry: a word that strikes fear into the heart of number-phobes everywhere. Although it may recall horrible memories of trying to use a scientific calculator at school, the type of Geometry that we're into is the kind that sparkles and shines. Geometric jewellery has been a key trend over the last few years, running hand-in-hand with the Scandi minimalism that we've seen dominating the runways. Here are 5 designers that make an art out of creating geometric jewellery.
Svendsen Jewellery was created by Norwegian jewellery designer Stine Svendsen. Stine has a passion all things minimal and angular, so it seemed only natural to include her striking geometric designs on our list.
After graduating from Central St. Martins College in London, Stine has honed her skills to produce confident, modern and refined collections. Despite the fact that she has travelled the world, Svendsen Jewellery still has very clear Norwegian roots. These designs are incredibly versatile and can be styled as part of a busy or minimal ensemble.
Jewellery Designer Stephanie Bates finds her inspiration in architecture and the continuing changes of the urban landscape. Made from a combination of precious metals, enamel and spray paint, Bates merges traditional skills with new technology. There’s definitely something dystopian and futuristic about these designs, and you can clearly see how inspiration from movements such as Brutalism feeds into Bates’ creative process. We recommend pairing this geometric jewellery with a structured garm from COS or Whistles.
And now for something refreshingly different. Salome Charly’s aesthetic is rooted in architecture and experimentation. Each distinctive piece is hand-carved, and we love the way that the wood gives each piece it’s own unique quality. When it comes to wearability, lighter jewellery is always the way forward - another reason why Charly’s geometric jewellery designs are such a hit. There’s also seven different shades of wood to choose from, so there’s truly something for everyone.
Opes Robur only use the highest quality materials when it comes to their creations. After sourcing materials from the four corners of the world, these minimal pieces are completed with rose gold, yellow gold or sterling silver. We love the way that the brand juxtaposes sweeping curves with more harsh angles - geometric jewellery at its finest!
Myia Bonner designs striking contemporary jewellery that is both delicate and attention-grabbing. Bonner’s unique aesthetic is defined by her geometric jewellery style and playful approach to combining cutting-edge processes with traditional techniques. With each piece being designed and made in London, Bonner always has her finger on the pulse of the latest trends and movements to hit the capital and translates this into her designs.
