HILuxury - - IN THE LOOP - —by Cather­ine Cald­well

Born and raised in Honolulu, Yves Spinelli, the son of Ital­ianI­tal hair­styl­ists, was no stranger to the fash­ion world. Spinelli’s route to bi­joux star­dom be­gana at his par­ents’ salon, Bot­tega An­toine, pri­orr to pro­fes­sional ap­pren­tice­ships in NYC.C The Pu­na­hou grad then moved to o LA in ’97, where he launched his ca­reere at the name­sake Maxwell bou­tique.e Cal­i­for­nia is also where he met Dwyery Kil­collin, a con­tem­po­rary artist from m Chicago with an affin­ity for mix­ing mod­ernod and clas­sic mo­tifs. The duo launchedh Spinelli Kil­collin jew­elry in 2010, andn quickly moved from fash­ion­ing per­son­al­izeds pieces, to work­ing with pri­vatev clients, which was quickly fol­lowed d by the grand suc­cess of SK’s in­ter­lock­ingn Galaxy rings. Yearn­ing for clean, ar­chi­tec­tural aes­thet­ics, Yves pop­u­lar­izedp these linked, cus­tomiz­ablea rings. With 50 luxur y bou­tiqueso world­wide, Spinelli Kil­collin’s in­tel­li­gent mélange of ge­o­met­rice shapes, un­com­mon ma­te­ri­als,a and pre­cious stones is hand-fash­ioneda by skilled ar­ti­sans anda are wear­able works of art. Pearls,s fine silks, leathers, pre­cious met­als and con­flict-freeo di­a­monds, ad­her­ing to Kim­ber­lyK Process stan­dards, are e other prime ma­te­ri­als. Vow­ingw to re­main a dom­i­nant forceo in the luxur y mar­ket, Spinel­lie Kil­collin ties the knot with thet launch of its Wed­ding Ex­pe­ri­enceE line. De­signed to grow as a re­la­tion­ship blossoms, the Wed­ding Ex­pe­ri­ence starts with a sin­gle band. The Core Col­lec­tion evokes pu­rity and strength in com­mit­ment, so that as you grow as a cou­ple, your rings do, too. Min­i­mal­is­tic rings are added as time passes, com­mem­o­rat­ing “mile­stones and mo­men­tous oc­ca­sions,” such as en­gage­ments and an­niver­saries. Named af­ter Greek deities of ro­mance and strength, the mar­i­tal as­sem­blage is as awe-in­spir­ing and eclectic as their cho­sen names: Amor, named for the Greek god of love, is the “nexus” of the wed­ding col­lec­tion, and boasts a daz­zling soli­taire. Com­pleted when linked with 18k yel­low-and-white gold links with pavé di­a­monds, these in­ter­change­able, ethe­real pieces charm the choosiest among us. Em­body­ing the “strength and pro­tec­tion that love pro­vides” is Artemis. The Artemis ring, for in­stance, is fash­ioned of three 18k yel­low-and-rose-gold linked rings, mi­cro-pavé white di­a­monds, and a cen­ter­cut di­a­mond. Other styles in­clude Or­pheus, who, ac­cord­ing to leg­end, could charm all liv­ing things; Ado­nis, god of beauty and de­sire; Hera, god­dess of mar­riage; At­ti­cus, evok­ing time and ex­pe­ri­ence in love; Kane, high­est of all Hawai­ian deities, et al.
