Minimalist forms, clean lines and subtle details have always been at the heart of Alex Orso, a London-based men's jewellery label that flies the flag for understated masculinity, producing pendants, rings and cuffs that don't have to be shout to be heard.
Keeping true to its characteristically refined aesthetic and considered approach to craftsmanship, the brand has recently launched its new Geometric [C-01] collection. Before you start dredging up traumatic memories of high school maths class, this isn't geometry as you know it. The range consists of a line of four clean-cut, angular pendants – a square, bar, isosceles triangle and hexagon, each available in three different plating options – 22kt gold, rhodium (silver) and black rhodium. As a mark of quality, the AO logo has been discretely laser engraved on the edge of each style. Minimalist in style yet brimming with personality, the pendants are ultra versatile and easy to wear, perfect on their own or layered together.
To coincide with the new launch, Alex Orso has cemented its reputation as a homegrown hero, making the decision to move all the manufacturing of its jewellery collections to the UK. The brand's eponymous founder says that the move is "an obvious step for the brand – and one to be celebrated," going on to say, "Now more than ever, I feel it is important to support the UK’s small artisanal businesses which offer such an abundance of unrivalled talent." We happen to agree. All the more reason to love Alex Orso.
