Asymmetry and geometry team up in a tinier collection of the jewelry designer’s popular looks
Marcia Budet’s new Collection 1 Mini is just as chic as its bigger, more established sibling. The artist’s harmonious asymmetrical styles feature the same cool custom cuts but are shrunken down for a lower profile and more accessible entry-level prices.
Both big and small collections offer a peek into Budet’s architectural training and serve as a translation of her grad school portfolio of works. Geometric silhouettes come to life thanks to Budet’s onetime experimentation with spacial branding—think restaurant and clothing store design—while experiences with modern renovations of museums and clever approaches to delicate problems (“I once worked on slum solutions in Bangladesh,” she says) all marry to make one super-cool and easy-to-identify signature style. “This is a deconstructed look at Collection 1 but with the same asymmetry,” she explains.
Budet has four variations of seven SKUs in 18k gold with gemstones and diamonds starting at $1,295 retail. Buy-in is six pieces. Find her in the Elite Enclave section of JCK LUXURY in booth no. 21.
