Pay attention to the latest runways and you’ll see accessories taking on the architecturally bold: Necklaces rendered in paper-like silhouettes, gold rings in beautifully gradating hues, or dangling earrings sculpted to bold proportions. A jewellery label like no other, Niessing has had all these down to a science, way before the trends kicked in.
With a history that dates back to the 1870s, the German label knows its craft. Along with the emergence of the storied Bauhaus art school in 1919 — which led to the rise of geometric starkness, simplicity and elegance of design — the label pronounced emphasis on its “form follows function” maxim, while keeping its penchant for declarative shapes intact.
Just like a statement coat, Niessing’s striking jewellery packs a visual punch to the most laid-back of outfits. Case in point: See model Aimee Cheng-Bradshaw and TV personality Jade Seah nonchalantly elevate their day-to-day ensembles with the disc-stacking Phoenix, braid-resembling Papyr, coil-strung Colette, ever-iridescent Aura, and the thinly moulded Topia selections.
Simply tap on the + icons beside their accessories to find out what these style-setters are wearing.
Niessing is also available at Lee Hwa Jewellery Boutiques.
