The new brıdal jewellery collectıon from Agmes rethınks tradıtıonal forms
It is a philosophy that takes shape in an endearingly eclectic bridal jewellery collection composed of pieces including sculptural cuffs, oversized earrings and offbeat wedding ring forms.
The new collection sees the reintroduction of the cuff, a piece the brand took a break from producing until the team felt able to perfect it. The resulting jewellery encompasses a sculpturally sleek form, in an elegant embrace of the wrist. It sits alongside a new welcoming use of colour and play with proportions, making for bridal jewellery that’s more cool than classic and the perfect complement for alternative bridal wear.
As I was designing these pieces, I was also planning my own wedding and thinking about what kinds of pieces I wanted to wear, Morgan Solomon, co-founder of Agmes, tells. “I gravitated toward distinctive and enduring forms – sculptural bracelets, statement earrings – and the vitality that colour can bring. I also considered how to combine different elements in ways that defied the traditions of bridal jewellery, from experimenting with bolder proportions to pairing baroque pearls with lapis, embracing organic shapes to create pieces that are perfectly imperfect.”
