Recently on On Your Market, a collection of curb chain bracelets showed how diversified the seemingly simple link can be. From the straightforward to artful interpretations, there’s something for everyone who’s looking.
Now as spring approaches, we are again reminded of the appeal of the bracelet. Sleeves get shorter and eventually disappear, leaving naked wrists the perfect palette on which to bejewel. Exactly what kind of bracelet one chooses has almost limitless possibilities.
So here’s one that might perk up your ears. From the Dubai, United Arab Emirates–based Toktam Jewellery, this bracelet from the Dancers collection is modern, elegant, artful—all things that make it eye-catching and covetable.
“Like the movement of a graceful dancer, this line is characterized by an 18k series of gold motif of interlocking twisted oval shapes, each entirely covered with a series of equally spaced parallel-cut lines creating a dance of light, which led Toktam to coin it the ‘dancer’s motif,’ ” says the brand’s website.
It’s a bit trippy, the way the golden links zoom from small to larger, creating a kaleidoscopic effect that feels 70s groovy. That aspect, coupled with its heft of gold, nails one of the most current aesthetics shoppers are looking for, but its gallery-worthy design also means it’s got staying power.
Toktam Shekarriz founded the eponymous Toktam Jewellery in 2017 in Dubai, after years of living in Montreal and pursuing a degree in gemology at the École de Gemmologie de Montréal, and studying at the École de Joaillerie de Montréal.
Returning to Dubai—where she lived before moving to Montreal—lent the inspiration to her creations, combining her Persian heritage with Arabic influences, in addition to the city’s contemporary art and architecture.
The Dancers collection, from which this bracelet comes, is one of numerous offered by the brand, as well as custom designs.
