A Jewelry Line for Minimalists Who Also Love Color

Amélie Riech certainly has an impressive fashion resume — having worked as a stylist and editor in Paris, then designed jewelry for the likes of Christofle and Paco Rabanne — but when it comes to her personal jewelry brand Uncommon Matters, if we had to guess, it's her erstwhile training in architecture we're likely most drawn to.

Buy These Curated Arrangements from Daniela Jacobs, Queen of the Still Life

Daniela Jacobs sees the world through the lens of the still life — something that's instantly obvious with a scroll through her Instagram page, where her beautifully shaped and textured ceramics are placed in and among the best props and treasures. So when her latest collection of shoppable still lifes, called ARC Accents, came about, it had evolved over years of accumulation and a love for secondhand items. “I didn't want to start a secondhand shop, but rather a curated collection of pieces, both found and of my own design.”

WAIF - Technicolor Melodrama

The Cool Girl Cape Town Jewelry Brand At the Top of Our Wish List

Called Waif, the line is a labor of love by former ad woman and self-taught jewelry designer Gisele Human, who we've been assiduously following on Instagram, waiting for news of a new collection to drop. We got our wish this week when Human unveiled her Technicolor Melodrama collection, in which many pieces mix Human's signature metals with stones like malachite, sodalite, and Dalmatian jasper.

We didn't know why we were so drawn to Anna Bario and Page Neal's new jewelry collection when we first saw it earlier this month, but we probably should have guessed: It marked the first time the Philadelphia duo explicitly drew upon their design influences during their creation process.

A Master of the Instagram Still-Life in Her (Perfectly Styled) Natural Habitat

Since the launch of her ceramic accessories line ARC Objects in 2014, the interaction of space and ideas through the black box of process has been a framework for Daniela Jacobs, whose work you might be familiar with from the thoughtfully rendered still-lifes that populate her Instagram. Which would be appropriate, considering how crucial a part Instagram has played in catapulting Jacobs to fame.

Repossi Paris flagship OMA Sabine Marcelis

In Paris, the Anti-French Jewelry Boutique

Here's something we never thought we'd be covering on this site: A French jewelry boutique. The very idea seems too fussy for our forward-thinking aesthetic, calling to mind things like porcelain reliefs, gilded displays, and grand spiral staircases. But the new Repossi flagship in Paris's Place Vendôme, designed by Dutch architects OMA, contains precisely none of those things.
