Taking design cues from the most influential movements

Words by Bridget Barnett

Clean lines, ornate finishes, raw materials and geometric shapes: the synergy between architecture and jewellery is truly harmonious, and exactly what we want to be tapping into right now.

So what exactly makes these accents stand out from classic hoops and charms? It’s about intent—all sharp lines and contours that weave and wind with clear direction, whether taking inspiration from Art Deco or Mid-Century Modern.

Speaking to the lobes and limbs of the creative set—artists, photographers, creative directors and the like—architectural jewellery finds its fandom among those who have a fine-tuned appreciation for considered composition. What’s more, each piece practically doubles as a work of art, meaning that when it comes to getting dressed, you can count on keeping it simple and let your accessories take the limelight.

If you can’t own an estate designed by Frank Gehry or a sculpture carved by Anish Kapoor, a wearable accessory that riffs on artistic and architectural influence might just be the perfect substitute.
