Under the loupe: our latest watch and jewellery finds

For Elie Top’s debut fine jewellery colletion Mécaniques Célestes, one the former Lanvin jeweller launched in 2015 - Top designed enigmatic rings, bracelets and earrings with a central sphere which clicks to reveal a sparkling hidden element. The Paris-based jeweller’s latest Sirius collection riffs on such concealment. This time, a smooth golden orb hides a twinkling centrepiece inspired by the structure of a daisy. This piece, in sapphires and diamonds gently nods to the design of engagement rings, encased inside a sun-like smooth outer sphere.

Amrapali Cosmic earrings

There’s an element of cosmic encounter behind Amrapali’s latest collection. The Jaipur-based jewellery brand’s earrings and oversized rings, crafted from diamonds, enamel and hunks of druzy agate, resemble microcosmic universes. The agate's glittering grainy crystals evoke twinkling stars and the outlines of far off galaxies in the solar system.

In its collaboration with fellow Shanghai-based fashion label Arete, jewellery label J Hardyment took inspiration from forms full of movement. ‘The artist Tracie Cheng worked on a textile print for Arete’s S/S 2018 line,’ says founder Joanna Hardyment. ‘It is full of undulating and almost three dimensional lines. I wanted to create something with the same feeling in mind, so we worked on organic 3-D forms.’ The resulting asymmetric earring styles resemble globules of hot lava, molten metal or metallic pools of water, suspended in twinkling droplets from the earlobe.
