The Must-Have Jewellery Brands Of The Moment

Working from home shouldn’t stop you from accessorizing. On the contrary, it should push you to dress up at least your upper body for those work-from-home zoom calls. And jewellery, in this case, seems to be the perfect excuse to show off some of the unique designers who, in the face of the crisis, still have their businesses going. Some have popped up recently and some have more experience behind them, however, all in all, here’s a list of the ones we love the most. 

 

Sherman Field

Fashion fanatics will, of course, be aware of who Danielle Sherman is. Former creative director of New York-based brand Edun and with a past working at The Row and Alexander Wang, the designer relocated to Los Angeles and has, since then, launched her very own jewellery brand inspired by the retro jewellery collection of LA’s Getty Museum archives. Not to miss are the essential hero pieces of the brand, a series of substantial 18-karat hand-linked chain necklaces.

 

Mondo Mondo

Launched by Los-Angeles-based designer Natasha Ghosn, Mondo Mondo isn’t just a regular jewellery brand. The designer has managed to craft both earthy, sexy fragrances which include a diverse range of fresh spirits and organic and bold jewellery, which evoke 1980s-inspired atmospheres. 

 

Anissa Kermiche

Since 2016, Anissa Kermiche has been making her mark in the fine jewellery world with her line of sculptural and fine-art inspired creations. Turning shapes from daily life into what she defines as wearable art - ranging from lamps to paintings to sculptures, Kermiche often references artists including Francois Morellet, Alexander Calder and Constantin Brancusi. 

 

Panconesi

Prior to launching his brand, Italian designer Marco Panconesi was creating jewellery for big fashion houses of the likes of Givenchy and Balenciaga and had also considered a career in archaeology. This affinity for the design sensibilities of ancient Greece and Rome has defined his oeuvre. His pieces resemble ancient artefacts that have been reworked, updated, and modernised and combine art and engineering to make unique, convertible pieces - think hoops that turn into cuffs and drop earrings that can be worn as climbers.

 

Sophie Buhai

For those who know her already, Los Angeles-based designer Sophie Buhai is like Kermiche, one of the designers making waves in the jewellery industry because of her minimal, yet sleek wearable art pieces. Statement-making sculptural pieces that range from heavy egg-shaped, solid metal pendants, one of her signatures, to huge, sculptural pearls fashioned into earrings, a collar necklace, a headband. The Los Angeles-based jewellery designer works on a made-to-order basis with wait times sometimes reaching six to eight weeks.

 

Sapir Bachar

Recently launched in 2019 after stints in the design departments of Proenza Schouler and Calvin Klein, New York City-based designer Sapir Bachar’s jewels find their reference in the lines of calligraphy and Art Nouveau. Playing with traditional goldsmith techniques, Bachar’s jewels are the perfect minimalist accessory to add to the wardrobe. 

 

Ejing Zhang

In 2014, London-based designer Ejing Zhang steered the wheel, changing pathway from textiles to jewellery. Since then, her sculptural resin jewellery has made waves across the industry because of its playful, yet sculptural forms beloved by many and stocked at online retailers such as Net-A-Porter and Matches Fashion. For spring/summer 2020, she layered her usual resin forms with diaphanous layers of fabric to create more depth against the intense tones of contrasting colours as well as jewel-like transparency and clarity. 

 

Peet Dullaert

Since its foundation in 2012 in the Netherlands, designer Peet Dullaert has explored a contemporary aesthetic through ready-to-wear and fine jewellery, whose organic shapes reflect the brand’s commitment to environmental practices and sustainability in design. The result is wearable objets d’art that create distinctive, singular looks.

 

Leda Madera

Recently debuted in January on Moda Operandi, the brand designed by digital personality and content creator Giulia Tordini (sister of The Attico’s Giorgia Tordini) is inspired by the lines and architecture of the art deco movement. A refined statement collection composed of gold-plated clip-on earrings, a cuff, a necklace, and a ring.

 

Rosantica

Fusing Roman-inspired designs with directional shapes and rare gems, Michela Panero’s brand Rosantica is not only known for its jewellery collection but also for its unique, ethereal headbands and charming crystal-embellished mini bags.
