Inspired by the night skies, Istanbul jewelry designer Evren Kayar’s constellation series beguiles with organic, otherworldly charm.
“She uses a really natural form to create organic-looking pieces that look elegant and are not heavy or weighty visually or in feel,” says Goldman approvingly of the designer’s intriguingly tendril-like pieces, which glisten with enamel and are studded with colorful stones.
“There’s a lightheartedness and elegance to it all.” The boutique owner is a particular fan of the pieces’ colorful versatility, adding, “The stackable rings are genius. You could do more than one color on one hand, all the same color, two different earrings, one red one black—her color is stunning.”
And the collection’s pièce de résistance? “The ear cuff. Because it’s completely thinking outside the box—it’s a piece of art that you wear on your ear.” It adds up to a collection that Goldman describes as timeless and forever. “These are the pieces you will wear all the time, put away and come back to, year after year, and they will have a different life every time you engage with it.” Prices upon request, Ikram, 15 E.
