Obsession: RUIFIER's Newest Eye Spy Chokers

RUIFIER | Gem Gossip RUIFIER | Gem Gossip RUIFIER | Gem Gossip RUIFIER | Gem Gossip RUIFIER | Gem Gossip

I've been keeping tabs on my favorite British jewelry brand RUIFIER and I'm happy to report they've just launched a new collection! Called the Eye Spy Collection, our latest, favorite jewelry trend comes to life the RUIFIER way. It is a collection of chokers; each choker features Italian leather and a signature RUIFIER charm done in 18k gold and gems dangling from the center. The closures are done in 18k gold with an extended chain, so the perfect fit will be found every time!

The collection retails from £755-£1035 in 18k yellow gold and can be pre-ordered on their website. Each choker captures abstract details of facial expressions in contemporary graphic shapes--from jewelled eyes to a hanging chain forming a mouth--this range explores the significance of visual language.  They are fun, trendy and perfect for summer!  Layering necklaces has certainly become very popular this year and one essential element to a necklace stack is a great choker.

If you've been wishing for a choker to add to your jewelry wardrobe, these are what you've been waiting for!  You can shop the collection below--there are four different styles in 18k gold. Click photos to shop!

Was so excited to get to see RUIFIER's designs in person! The colors and geometric shapes are everything!

Shimell & Madden also blew me away--extremely modern, with lines and curves making up the collection. Love the matte finish and the multiple shanks.

If you've ever wanted to sneak off, away from all the hustle and bustle of Couture, and be instantly amazed, refreshed and wishing you spoke with a British accent, I highly suggest checking out Stephen Webster's jewelry initiative called Rock Vault. This mini-ballroom hosts eight highly talented British designers, all whom are bringing their insanely gifted skills to the US. As I strolled along to each designer and spoke with them about their creations and inspirations, it became clear as to why Stephen Webster started Rock Vault in the first place!

"Rock Vault is a jewellery initiative to support, showcase and promote Britain’s most innovative, fine jewellery talent. Curated by Stephen Webster, this unique showcasing initiative has been developed by the BFC to nurture the creative fine jewellery talent based in London. It gives these designers the opportunity to further develop their businesses, as well as exposure amongst both UK and international media and retailers."

I felt positive vibes from every designer featured in Rock Vault--an overall sense of excitement and gratitude, radiating with pride for not only their work but to be showcased in Las Vegas at the Couture show. Above you'll find some photos I snapped, at least one from each designer featured in Rock Vault. Here's a little more about each designer:

Rachel Boston Jewellery: a young, talented designer born and based in London with a wild imagination. Nominated for numerous awards, including New Designer of the Year at the UK Jewellery Awards. I'm completely obsessed with her Anceps ring done in 18k yellow gold from her latest collection called CONTRA. Fun fact: Rachel got married in Vegas after the show! Congrats to her!!

Completedworks: Flowing lines, bold architecture, fluid shapes...Completedworks was on my list of "must-sees" for Couture since I began planning. Artistic Director Anna Jewsbury has a unique background in Mathematics and Philosophy, which truly defines the line. The Pillar collection is inspired by architectural ruins, like the classical columns, and they are done in white and black marble, jade set in 18k yellow gold.

Imogen Belfield: with a background in Fine Arts and Sculpture, one look at Imogen's designs and you can see how that path has influenced her creations. Her fine line just recently launched, with each piece being carvings all hand-done, which take on the form of rocks. The gemstones she uses are quite unique as well--I was taken back by the hot pink stone in one of her designs--so cool! It is actually an extreme heat-treated onyx (you can see the neon pink color in the photo I took above). She also just won the Couture Design Award for "best in gold" category!

Jacqueline Cullen: precious Whitby jet--a prehistoric fossil which dates back 180 million years which is most well-known in jewelry form from Victorian mourning jewelry. Jacqueline creates contemporary pieces of jewelry using this now very rare organic material. Her designs are innovative and have graced the pages of magazines and celebrities alike. 

Lily Kamper: her love for unusual material combinations and modern luxury define Lily's aesthetic. Her iconic pendant necklaces made of marble and perspex are all hand cut. She also has a bridal line just as unique as her other designs and her newest collection features hardstone jewels set in 18k yellow gold.

RUIFIER: I've been following this brand for a few years now and so excited to finally see their collection in person! RUIFIER knows how to push boundaries and create really unique pieces. They also have a knack for choosing great color combinations and gemstones for each design. 

Shimell & Madden: created by duo Luke Shimell and Emma Madden, this London-based jewelry line fuses high-quality craftsmanship with scientific design and universal concepts. Each piece looks as though it belongs in a museum, while at the same time, extremely wearable. I was instantly wowed by this jewelry line.

Jordan Askill: last but not least, this jewelry line is evocative, nature-inspired and jaw-dropping. From the gemstones used to the designs themselves, each part of the overall design is planned out with utmost precision. Jordan's background working for Alexander McQueen and throughout the fashion industry helps embellish his journey as a jewelry designer. His work and accolades extend far and wide for such a young designer, I can't wait to see what is next for him!
