Marie Lichtenberg Coco 14-karat gold diamond necklace
After a chance find of a vintage snap hook in a market in Tokyo, two friends—Chiara Capitani and Romy Blanga—transformed the item into jewelry and started their brand Eéra. The Milan-based duo took the minimal original design and morphed it into pavé-diamond-encrusted links for bracelets or fluorescent dangles on earrings.

Completedworks is a modern and self-described “reductive” line of demi-fine and fine jewelry founded by London-based Anna Jewsbury.
