Designer Cristina Gabriele seems to have a fun approach to industrial fashion, as illustrated by her jewelry line, Heart & Noble.
“I’m often inspired by discarded objects and I like the idea of elevating everyday functional things into something precious,” says Gabriele, who started her business in 2013. “I think I’m reinterpreting jewelry in a sense that I can work with both fine and fancy materials. Jewelry’s mechanical aspect also inspires me.”
One example of Gabriele’s brand credo is Heart & Noble’s Fanatic collection, which is composed of cute accessories made with 3D printed nylon and/or brass with a matte polish (some are even plated with 9kt yellow gold).
Among the items featured there, the stackable fan-shaped rings caught our eyes.
These lightweight rings come in various colors, from discreet neutrals to eye popping bright hues.
Retail: $75 to $525 (fan-shaped rings)
