As part of Dominic Jones’ premiering collections for Astley Clarke, he has produced a range of products that draw inspiration from the modernist art movement of the 1930s and 1940s and the kinetic work of American sculptor, Alexander Calder. Bringing together eclectic themes centred on semi-precious gemstones, these latest additions to Stilla focus of stacking and layering semi-precious stones and mixed metals.
In this contemporary collection of fine jewellery pieces, Jones has teamed his flair for sculptural works with Astley Clarke’s renowned celebration of colour to create a new way to wear semi-precious gemstones that is dynamic, modern and unexpected.
Jones’ passion for democratising fine jewellery shines through with this vibrant collection of pop hues and easy-to-wear gold and ruthenium plated silver pieces. Modelled by his close friend and former business partner Alice Dellal, the collection presents semi-precious gemstones in a fashion-forward way.
The versatility of this inclusive collection proposes jewellery pieces for all occasions. Plated with 18ct gold and ruthenium vermeil, an unexpected mix of metals and gemstones are grouped together for high impact. Pink opal is united with rose gold, malachite is matched with yellow gold, and black onyx is teamed with dark ruthenium. Both elegant and fun, this selection of rings, earrings, necklaces and cuffs can be worn both during the day and at night.
With each design named after prominent artists of the avant-garde era every piece has a story to tell. The Peggy necklaces and stud earrings are inspired by the flamboyant art collector Peggy Guggenheim, known for her love of beads and colour.
The Yves rings (named after painter Yves Tanguy) are made from 18 carat rose gold plated silver that wrap symmetrically around the finger. Paired with the cleverly coordinating Yves Midi rings, this creates an illusion of balance and offers a new twist on the theme of stacking and layering.
The Marcel hoop earrings play on the surrealist painter Marcel Duchamp’s interpretation of everyday objects and are reminiscent of a safety pin.
