Contemporary Jewelry

Contemporary Jewelry

Contemporary jewellery is current and trendy, blending art and jewellery into something relevant for today.

Contemporary jewellery is crafted in the present day, often using unconventional materials like plastic or wood, with designs that can be asymmetrical or abstract. It prioritises self-expression over traditional styles or materials.

A key distinction between modern and contemporary jewellery lies in their aesthetics. Modern jewellery is typically associated with elegance and sophistication, whereas contemporary jewellery tends to be more daring and avant-garde.
