Carbickova Crowns

The story of Carbickova Crowns began 30 years ago in eastern Slovakia. When designer Anna was a small child, her parents started making rosaries by hand. She would steal glass beads from them and make sun decorations for windows. Today, she still loves symbols of the universe: the sun, moon and stars, and likes to weave them throughout her incredible creations. Together with her husband, she produces crowns for goddesses from their studio in the north of the Czech Republic.

Their halo crowns are made of filigree, pearls, jewellery components and minerals. The crowns are made with love, positive energy and carry authentic their handwriting. Khloe Kardashian is even a past customer!

“It will be a great honour for us to make the crown for your special occasion”, Anna writes. “We love to stand out from the crowd and we know that you too.”

Holly says, “My brides know their own style and what works for them and don’t find it in traditional boutiques. Whether the result features innovative sculptural silhouettes, bespoke embroidery or unexpected flashes of colour, I start with how each bride wants to feel when she sets foot on the aisle and then uncover the individual elements that will make that a reality. It’s a very intimate, holistic process playing with beautiful fabrics, wild ideas and lots of brainstorming and chats over cups of tea. Lots of tea.”

LOLiDE

LOLiDE are all about breaking the boundaries of traditional engagement and wedding jewellery.

We’re all painfully familiar with our culture’s lingering, antiquated formula for buying wedding jewellery: she gets a big rock, he gets a plain band, everybody moves on. But it’s time to throw out the binary, sexist assumptions that go along with the traditional approach. Whoever you are, whomever you love, you are welcome here. LOLiDE’s goal is to help their customers express themselves with rings that reflect their personal style – and their special bond – in a way that they’ll be proud to wear every single day.

They are committed to offering their customers a wide selection of modern, elegant engagement and wedding rings that work in countless combinations. Rather than offer gender neutral, non-binary and LGBTQ+ rings as an afterthought, they’ve made these designs the heart of what they do, and they’ve made unisex rings from day one, driven by their experience of struggling with the gender binary and never fitting into either box.

Inclusivity, visibility, and respect for all forms of non-traditional weddings – however they are defined – are driving concepts behind LOLiDE.

Klipkalinka

Kipkalinka is run by Christine, a professional goldsmith who has been making elegant and dainty skull jewellery since 2012. Being on the autistic spectrum, she is a gemstone-nerd with a deep interest in symbols and myths. Her condition enables her to execute the incomparable detail and quality her work is known for.

Kipkalinka jewellery is subtle and looks like classic jewellery from afar, but it’s not. The idea behind is that we have to look closer and dig deeper to truly recognize each other, ourselves and the world.

Christine is an expert in combining precious metal alloys and unique gemstones in a meaningful, individual way. She will go the extra mile to find exactly the stone that speaks to YOU. Kipkalinka even offers a custom-cut service for salt and pepper diamonds. All designs can be made in sterling silver, all gold alloys of 14K and 18K as well as palladium and platinum.

Kipkalinka jewellery is cherished by beautifully strange and unusual individuals from all over the world, who seek to express their inner truth in a subtle but unmistakable way. Those who find pride in feeling different from the crowd and own their uniqueness.
Also the process of making Kipkalinka rings is truly unique. Christine executes the prototypes directly in metal, which can take 50 hours (or more) and allows her to create microscopic details and an organic appearance.
