What Should We Expect From Contemporary Jewellery?

In a world where fashion is ever-evolving, jewellery becomes an important constant that is always finding ways to bring even more personality and elegance. Contemporary jewellery emerges as a quiet but visible player in fashion, with its nod to modernity, minimalism, and elegance.

But what is contemporary jewellery:

For me, modern jewellery strikes a harmonious balance between classic charm, cutting-edge design, and incredible craft. For example, among the plethora of options available, Silverwood Jewellery offers a seamless blend of contemporary design with traditional craftsmanship. I find that this fusion also often helps to address crucial issues like sustainability and ethical production.

Modern Minimalism with Timeless Appeal

Contemporary jewellery, often characterized by clean lines, simple shapes, colour and a focus on functionality, has become a staple in many fashion-forward wardrobes. Its appeal lies in its ability to effortlessly complement a range of styles, from casual to formal, and its capacity to withstand the test of time.

Silverwood Jewellery embodies this modern minimalism flawlessly. The brand's pieces exude understated elegance, with a strong emphasis on clean, sleek designs that transcend fleeting trends. Whether you're dressing up for a special occasion or adding a touch of sophistication to your daily attire, Silverwood's jewellery can easily fit into your capsule wardrobe, making it an investment you'll cherish for years to come.

Inspired by Classics, Designed for Today

Contemporary jewellery often takes inspiration from classic forms, infusing them with a modern twist to create pieces that resonate with the present. This fusion of the past and the present results in jewellery that feels familiar yet refreshingly new.

As the designer of Silverwood Jewellery, I have done my best to find this balance, drawing inspiration from timeless elements while crafting pieces that cater to the needs and tastes of the modern wearer. This is why many of my designs pay homage to classic aesthetics, which serve as a foundation for contemporary innovation. Our Iris Collection is a perfect example of this. The result is a collection of pieces that strike a chord with individuals who appreciate the enduring beauty of tried and tested style while embracing the new and unique.

Elegance Meets Ethics: Sustainability and Ethical Production

Contemporary jewellery is not just about aesthetics; it's about values too. Today's consumers demand transparency and ethics in their purchases, and contemporary jewellery brands are responding by incorporating sustainable practices and ethical production into their core principles.

At Silverwood Jewellery is we are committed to building a sustainable brand. To do this we use natural and responsible sourced materials, recycled silver whenever possible, plant-based glues and waxes, and keep our production small and close to home. We also contribute to reforestation efforts by planting a tree for every piece sold. Choosing Silverwood means choosing not only beauty but also a brand that values the planet and its people.

From a design point of view, the allure of contemporary jewellery lies in its ability to seamlessly blend modernity, minimalism, and timeless elegance. But I believe it must also go beyond style and must transcend into everything we do through ethical and thoughtful production.
