While people hit links for sport, use links to communicate, and rely on revealing links for education, jewellery designers use links to drive more fashionable directions in attire.

Influences reflect signature styles like crownwork, trending (think pink!) or even mismatched colours, and surface shades and textures further enhanced by pavé and rhodium plating. Widths and outlines are wide, modern, soft and petite, with some structured to give the illusion of pieces bigger than they appear.

Final effects are updated traditional numbers that can find favour among a wide range of collectors. This chic nexus of accessories unites, ties, and joins in the jauntiest of ways, proving that weak links don’t exist when designers have a hand in their making.
