All thoughts are on enamel lately as it seems to be one of the most prominent styles coming out of Las Vegas Jewelry Week—at least, that’s my conclusion after pawing through Instagram.
The colorful coating was spotted in numerous variations, running the gamut from accents on engagement rings to polished sterling silver and some major diamonds that resulted in a look quite like nothing I’ve seen before.
Since there are basically limitless colors to choose from, enamel jewelry can go from big and bold to soft and sweet (variations of pastels flooded my feed earlier this week), used in ways both traditional and new.
I like the Papillons ring collection from Hyrv (above), because it’s a little nip of enamel that’s easy to procure (its sterling silver construction makes it easier on the wallet) and even easier to wear. I’m drawn to the assembly of multiple colors as pictured above, and though I won’t say I’m a particular fan of the butterfly motif, there’s something about a group of them that is undeniably magical and completely irresistible.
Hyrv is based in Tallinn, Estonia, and run by founder and creative director Kateryna Pishon. The brand just concluded its first showing in the Design Center at JCK Las Vegas this year, coming away an Editor’s Choice winner as a JCK Rising Star.
This being the year of Ultra Violet and all, this edition in lavender enamel will no doubt find its fans. But for other colors—or to collect them all (that’s what I would do)—there’s a wide variety of Papillons rings available. There are also other variations—with pearls, without, and ones featuring more than one butterfly motif. All beautiful, and all just begging to be worn in groups. See them all at hyrv.co.
