Clean Contrast October 07 2015
OOAKF: Black and White Jewellery
Black and white is nothing new. But for this One-of-a-Kind Friday, we have created custom gemstone jewellery that puts a modern spin on the classic B&W you are used to.
There is a reason why a girl can never own too many little black dresses (LBD), or white tee-shirts. Simply put, they are classy, versatile, and can be worn with just about anything and for any occasion. It is no wonder then, that when you put the two colours together (like say, in a beautiful piece of handcrafted jewellery), the classic combination creates a clean contrast of timeless elegance.
The Olive Set—a handcrafted Necklace, Bracelet and Earrings—is a perfect example. Featuring natural dalmatian jasper, Swarovski crystal, Sparkle Balls, and gold vermeil, the pieces offer a rich contrast between earthy and industrial, antique and contemporary, and warm and cool. As an added bonus, jewellery that offers contrast is bold and interesting while still being versatile.
The Gemma Statement Necklace looks stunning paired with either that LBD or white-tee we mentioned above. With the same unique dalmatian jasper as the Olive Set, its eccentricities lie in the contrasting combination of its elements: rutilated quartz, milky druzy, and polished gold pearl.
For a sharp and clean look, slip your wrist into the Blanch Bracelet. Bright white agate framed by warm gold vermeil and a touch of Swarovski crystal come together to create a one-of-a-kind bracelet that makes an easy transition from season to season.
For something a little bit warmer and with a bit more edge, the Stella Bracelet features a gorgeously warm polished rose gold, accompanied by platinum and gold pearls with opal and black Sparkle Balls.
With so many options, find solace in the fact that you simply can't go wrong with black and white. These One-of-a-Kind Friday creations are as timeless as they are classic—just like you.
