Industrial jewellery is defined by its use of unconventional materials and intriguing forms. Since chain necklaces exploded back onto the fashion scene, the industrial aesthetic has provided design houses such as Chanel and Givency with a great deal of inspiration. People want to make bold and striking choices with their jewellery, and for these individuals, dainty is out and daring is in!
Inspired by urban architecture and repurposed industrial materials, industrial jewellery can take many forms. Industrial materials often come in their raw, untouched form. Therefore sleek metal shapes and minimalist aesthetics are often associated with the industrial jewellery trend. However, designers such as Viktor & Rolf imbue the industrial trend with an edge of luxury, with precious gemstones adorning their metal designs. Fendi go chic and simple. Perhaps industrial jewellery creates the perfect harmony between statement and subtle, which is why designers are fully on-board with this trend. Industrial jewellery enhances your outfit without stealing the show.
