The international jewellery brands you need to know (and love)

If you don’t know, now you know. Market & Beauty Director Ellen Presbury on the jewellery labels to get into your life.

‘Tribal punk’ (or so reads their Instagram bio). Jewels that read like tribal talismans, body coverings that could be amour if not for the deftness of design, and finger cuffs, breast plates and facial coverings that feel so fresh in a sea of fine jewellery. Designed by Rome-native Giulia Tavani, Angostura’s range is handmade and “underline[s] the personality of who choose to wear them”.

Italy has always produced the world’s best in fashion. But in addition to the storied, global luxury houses there’s now a young guard of designers redefining our wardrobes, footwear and jewellery. Attico kicked off the fashion side of the new wave, followed by Amina Muaddi’s eponymous footwear label (that sells out before it hits the shelves). And Eéra’s jewellery brand is similarly hard to get a hold of. Solid gold and diamond pave in hardware form. Gimme.

Born out of L.A., the brand best known for their chunky, stacked Galaxy rings is the brainchild of husband and wife duo Yves and Dwyer Kilcollin. Spinelli Kilcollin‘s jewellery is still made by hand in their downtown L.A. headquarters, and you can take your pick from earrings, bracelets and necklaces. But for me? It’s just those rings I can’t stop saving in my Instagram account. Sapphire clusters, high-jewellery in its heaviest form and best worn with a hooded jumper. We’re casual girls with expensive taste.

Because we’ve always had a thing for bad boys. We first discovered Alan Crocetti when Dev Hynes wore them on the cover of our annual men’s issue. But really, it was that campaign imagery that caught my attention. Boys with a busted lips and bruised eyes that made me want the jewellery all the same. The unisex brand hails from London and create forms both unexpected and innovative.

A crown of thorns or a flower crown? Fine strands of diamonds snake around the hand, creep around the neck and adorn the head in a halo of jewels. Italian designer Marco Panconesi cut his teeth at Givenchy and Balenciaga, and his creations under his own eponymous label merge art and engineering into fine jewels.
