Sice there is nothing I do more than scrolling through Instagram for jewellery pieces I would potentially wear. I thought it would be nice to share three designers I've been loving recently and I just can not stop thinking about. Without further ado; here they are:
■ Shihara | Tokyo, Japan
I found Shihara through Dover Street Market Ginza, and though I only own one pearl ring from them, I've been recommending them to all my friends ever since. Most of their designs are pretty minimal, and yet with a beautiful structure that enhances the beauty of the gems. They are a bit on the pricier side, but I do think if you don't mind splurging yourself every once in a while, fine jewellery would be the best choice. All that said, even scrolling through their Instagram feed is an enjoyment; their aesthetic is to-die-for.
來自東京的 Shihara 是我在銀座 DSM 發現的；走的是極簡路線，不管是項鍊或戒指，都不會有太多的裝飾或繁複的設計。不過，他們在結構、鑽與珍珠的放置上卻很別出心裁。像是我個人十分傾心的半珍珠系列，就是最好的例子。以不同的角度將部分的珍珠以K金覆蓋住，很少見、很不同。由於價格的關係，我目前只擁有一只戒指，但每當身邊有人想犒賞自己，或投資精緻的珠寶與飾品，二話不說，我的推薦名單非 Shihara 莫屬！
■ Saskia Diez | Munich, Germany
For the sake of un-pierced ears. I don't have my ears pierced, which made finding the perfect ear cuffs my daily routine. Made in Germany, Saskia Diez has become one of my favourite designers since I discovered her through #accro. Her pieces are all extremely timeless, and yet still comes with a modern twist. They look good, feel good, and is so comfortable to wear. Need I say more?
Saskia Diez 是透過 #accro 發現的，因為沒有耳洞，所以時常會關注一些耳扣或耳夾。來自德國慕尼黑，Saskia Diez 的作品乍看之下都很極簡、經典，但其實都藏了些時髦的細節。有時候可能是外觀，更多時候是配戴起來的模樣。好比照片中的款式，就是設計要待在耳窩的，讓原先看似偏女人味的珍珠串變得有個性許多；在華麗與率性中取得了平衡，我很喜歡。
■ Chun-Ting Jewellery | Taipei, Taiwan
I've been raving about this brand for a while. I met Chun-Ting in the UK a few years ago. She was studying jewellery design back then, and she visits London occasionally, where we would discover amazing food spots in town together. A few months ago, she launched her store in Taipei, along with a brand new line of delicate pieces. Everything is handmade with the best material and details. I'm so in love!
之前在 Instagram 就分享過 Chun-Ting Jewellery這個品牌。在英國走跳的兩年，和鈞婷成了吃吃喝喝的伴，回台灣後看著她創立自己的品牌，覺得很感動，也很受鼓舞。隨著信義區實體店面的開幕，她也跟著推出了適合堆疊、相互搭配的的輕珠寶，我自己也是這個系列的忠實粉絲，每次收到預定的戒指，都好滿意，工好細。如此有才，溫暖的設計師，又是來自台灣，不分享給大家知道怎麼行！
There you go, my three favourite jewellery designers at the moment! As you might be able to tell, I've been loving delicate pieces lately. Do guys have any favourite designer/brand for jewels? Share some of yours below; I'd love to know!
