Vortex Jewellery Collection

With the luxury jewellery market packed with designs for women, the Vortex Jewellery Collection filled the gap between the lack of options for male jewellery. With that being said, this collection is modern in design which enables the jewellery pieces to be seen on both genders.The forms celebrate individual identity and modern sense of art and design, and the variety of the collection allows them to be matched with outfits accordingly. The inspiration of the collection comes from the abstract lines of modern architecture, especially the contrast between the straight lines and curves.
