Everyone loves a bit of bling, especially me. I love classic and timeless pieces that last through the years – especially ones that go on my fingers. My obsession with rings led me to Ilene Steele, a jewellery designer based in Hatton Gardens, with a penchant for unique knuckle rings and candy heart jewellery.
The Hatton Garden-based native New Yorker has created a collection that references the excitement and turbulence of life; finding synergy between the shifting of ocean tides, currents and waves with the disorder and extremities of human existence.
Ilene’s collection – which launches this summer – is called The Wave Collection and encompasses bold, geometric and architecturally-styled statement jewellery.
My new obsession-a knuckle ring!
Where the magic happens! The collection comprises of a range of fine 18ct gold and silver cocktail rings, alongside studded earrings that include tilted semi-precious and precious stones, brought together through the ancient method of cuttlefish casting, which provides distinctive wave-like texture on the metal.
Yellow on blue…great colour match!
What I like to call candy heart jewellery with a bit of rock n’ roll…
The Wave Collection is available online and in store at Wolf & Badger and The Clerkenwell Collection
