Live From JCK LUXURY 2016: W. Britt’s Unwritten Jewelry Collection



A newer line at JCK LUXURY offers discreet symbolism for message-jewelry-loving collectors

Subtlety is Brittany Weiss’ specialty, even though her two-and-a-half-year-old line is bold, blocky, and architecturally inspired. That’s because the force behind W. Britt, located in booth no. 20 in the Elite Enclave section of JCK LUXURY, is offering a line of letter, number, and symbol jewelry where the messages are discreet because of the stretched effect of their execution.

For example, an A cuff sprawls like any other bracelet across the junction of where arm meets hand with ends touching wrist undersides, leaving the sturdy center bar to serve as the main ornament. Place other similarly unobtrusive letters on either side and you have a word, initials, or private message that is not in your face but has definite meaning between wearers and gifters or for self-purchases alone.

Everything is made in her proprietary alloy of 18k gold-plated sterling silver that “won’t wear like typical vermeil,” explains Weiss. The line is made in Thailand, and buy-in is 15 pieces. Retail prices of rings and hoop earrings are $195, while cuffs are $395.
