This Is The New Jewellery Aesthetic Of The Season

Think bijoux but with an edge.

Metal chain necklace with matching charm, Dior

They might be popularly associated with streetwear and musicians with names like 2 Chainz, but graphic styles of bijoux inspired by mechanical parts were in fact first popularised in the ’60s as a response to the era’s obsession with all things futuristic. Flash forward to Pre-Fall, and they take on a different romantic note. At Hermes (below), the clasp on its iconic Kelly bag inspires an elongated pair of yellow gold drop earrings and matching lariat necklace. Tiffany & Co. updates its chain-and-ball Hardwear collection in elegant 18K white gold and diamonds. And at Dior (above), mid-sized chain chokers get a girlie touch with star-shaped lockets. Fun yet feminine and everyday-friendly – dayumm, this is fine.
