Classic jewellery spans generations, trends, monarchs and even lifestyles. At some stage the question has to rise… isn’t it time for something new? In the slew of fly-by-night artists, jewellery designers, production processes and trends, identifying the future heroes of the jewellery world can be tough.
Brand New Rebels
Since 1984 the Thomas Sabo jewellery brand has slowly but steadily built a reputation as one of the most innovative, creatively colourful bastions of the contemporary jewellery industry. Always distinctive, the subtle yet boldly defiant designs of the Thomas Sabo brand have yet to come up against an uncomplimentary trend. Perhaps their greatest success has been the Charm Club Collection. Thomas Sabo charms present a valuable, wearable jewellery option with that all-important modern element of adaptability.
Monica Vinader is perhaps one of the most intriguing of the new guard. Multi-metal ethnic designs spliced with a healthy dash of her native Spanish influence and classic intuition help mould the collections into modern masterpieces.
Classic Goes Contemporary
Swarovski spent much of the 1990’s dustily nestled on the shelves of grandmothers the world over in the form of cheeky foxes, hedgehogs and glittering butterflies. A millennium overhaul has seen the classic brand bloom into one of the most ultra-modern, chic, inventive jewellery brands of today.
Their signature crystals now grace the facets of charm bracelets (the cupcake charm in particular is stunning), bespoke clothing, incredibly fresh day-to-day jewellery designs, and of course lavish pieces bearing the telling “Price on Request” label.
Investing in a piece of contemporary jewellery is no waste of time or money. Remember, once upon a time the most classic art deco cocktail ring was a radical leap forward in the world of high-end jewellery. The new guard of Thomas Sabo, overhauled Swarovski, and Monica Vinader shows no sign of resigning its post anytime soon.
