Agmes Jewellery NYC
With a strong aesthetic that has contributed to their timely success, jewellery label, Agmes has captured our attention this month. Founded in 2016 by New York sisters Morgan and Jaclyn Solomon, they draw design inspiration from the urban landscape, architecture and art to create modern heirlooms.
Sculptural in form, yet sleek and feminine, Agmes references shapes of the concrete jungle. They are influenced by architecture, emulating lines from the likes of Le Corbusier and Cini Boeri (which helped title the “Boeri” ring which shows similar characteristics in form to the infamous Serpentone sofa). Each piece is composed in sterling silver or gold vermeil, with the inclusion of uniquely sourced pearls and is delicately crafted.
The label’s ethos dedicates itself to the production of sustainable jewellery pieces, working predominately with recycled metals and leaving little to no scrap materials, all with the aim of having a small environmental footprint. The Solomon sisters also feel proud about giving back to the community as each piece is crafted locally by New York artisans.
The covetable brand is stocked in selective New York boutiques and can be found online at Moda Operandi. It’s a modern brand with a sustainable focus – worth adding to this year’s wish list for its wearability and timelessness.
