Keep an eye out for These Up-and-Coming Jewelers

Jewelry can show commitment, draw attention to certain features of our appearance and even tell a story

ALIGHIERI

up and coming jewellerThe label takes its inspiration from Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy, an epic poem of 100 cantos. Each decorative piece represents one of his stories. From hell and purgatory to paradise, the designer imagines the people and creatures wearing the antique-tinged gold jewelry around their neck and on their fingers. London-based Rosh Mahtani creates these modern heirlooms born from literature. She works relentlessly to reflect her vision of Dante’s melancholic and imperfect world. Each jewel is somewhat battered or “distressed” and has fluidity to it, unparalleled by anything else on the market; it is a step into the imagination of the immortal Italian poet. The Lost Dreamer collection explores the role of dreams in times when reality can seem like a surreal nightmare. Without a doubt, these pieces offer individual glamor paired with a rich history and narrative.

“All hope abandon, ye who enter here.” – Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy

MAISON MARGIELA

up and coming jeweller

The Belgian fashion designer Martin Margiela founded the brand in 1988 after finishing his studies at the Royal Academy of Antwerp. He was always interested in deconstructive fashion, introduced by avant-garde icons like Rei Kawakubo. Throughout his career he has aimed to question every tenet of fashion and luxury, sometimes shocking and always intriguing. It was in 2009 that the very shy Margiela stepped away from the spotlight and his position as creative director. Enfant terrible John Galliano then took over his role, shaping the brand to reflect his ideas and “make it his own.” Each collection includes everything from clothes, shoes, and belts to jewelry and the odd art object. The current jewelry collection gives a nod to the minimalistic approaches that have always furnished the brand with timeless understatement.

With their well-crafted and trendy pieces, they are always at the top of their game. Astrid is a Swedish name and Miyu is Japanese, both mean beautiful and, with that in mind, the brand embodies Nordic minimalism, Japanese craftsmanship, London edge and sophistication.
