Skulls make a comeback in jewellery
TEAR up the stylebook this winter and mix classical with contemporary.
This season skulls and black diamonds are in the spotlight, with brands like Linneys, Gucci and Alexander Mcqueen incorporating skulls into their designs.
Linneys creative director Justin Linney said the skull designs were not just for rock stars and motorcycle riders.
“Celebrities such as Gigi and Bella Hadid are wearing skull jewellery; these styles are taking over,” Linney said.
“Linneys has been manufacturing jewellery for more than 40 years and recently customers are requesting statement designs such as black diamonds and skull jewellery.
“There has certainly been a shift from simple and understated to bold and creative designs that stand out; especially in winter when fashion is more prominent.”
He said music had been the inspiration behind the Linneys range.
“The simple, understated designs originated from classical music, while the grungy skull designs came from rock music,” he said.
“I am inspired by different things around me such as the beach and popular music.”
With rings, earrings, bracelets and cufflinks in the range, skull jewellery is available for men and women.
Keep your eyes open for Linneys’ new collection launch in November/december.
