Allied square stud earrings handmade by British jewellery designer Matthew Calvin.
These gorgeous Allied Square Studs, in Sterling silver, gold and rose gold plate, use a special hand-finishing technique using different tools and hand-textured lines.
Inspired to revisit the designs from the Meteorite collection and build on them, designer Matthew Calvin took to the studio to update his vision for a new range of jewellery with a different conception and new influences.
These square studs are part of a tradition of the studio’s pieces which are delicate enough to be layered up with other pieces from their collections, or even outside of them. The model in our photo wears two Allied Square Studs in one ear; although, of course, one is a simple, elegant statement piece by itself.
Matthew began designing jewellery in 2012. Taking classes around Europe, he learnt different techniques, sculpting in precious metals and how to produce pieces that perfectly balanced simplicity and elegance. Matthew and his small team are now based in London’s Jewellery District, Hatton Garden, where he handcrafts his signature stylish and contemporary jewellery designs. Matthew is inspired by the modern physical world around him as well as his travels around Europe, Asia and Africa. He is now one of London’s most exciting young jewellery designers and his brand continues to grow from strength to strength.
