Founded by husband and wife design team Christopher Roule and Laurin Lucaire, Roule & Company has taken jewelry industry on a bold excursion into the future. Each Roule & Company piece effortlessly combines linear simplicity and kinetic movement, creating an almost ethereal look and feel. The use of emeralds, rubies, sapphires, diamonds, and more add surprising dimension to the pieces, which tend to come to life when worn. The trademark wireform technique used to create the designers’ signature latticework has been perfected in recent years. Combining Mr. Roule’s mastery of geometric shapes with Ms. Lucaire’s bold, yet feminine sensibility, Roule & Company’s pieces are strong, modern, and highly collectable.
A fashion and fine jewelry line founded by Rachel Shaw, Ruifier explores different aspects of Rachel’s inspiration: from her love of graphic urban and natural shapes experienced in her worldwide travels to the expressive faces of her loved ones, particularly her dog, Taiki. The name Ruifier is derived from the old English word ‘Reify’, meaning to create a tangible object from an abstract idea. From the transition of inspiration to reality, each Ruifier piece tells a story with Rachel’s masterful craftsmanship, attention to detail and choice of conflict-free stones. She designs pieces that can be adapted, interlocked and worn in different ways for a unique composition, turning each wearer into their own storyteller.
Founded by Lilya Areifulina, the Moscow-based Runa gets its name from an ancient alphabet whose elements were the key to unlocking profound meaning and personal codes. Like the runes the name references, Areifulina creates jewelry filled with a zest and appreciation of history for those who value individualism. Her accessories fill the wearer with energy and become talismans. Areifulina references traveling, cinema, architecture and art, along with legends and heritage, to give life to her jewelry. Applying cutting-edge craftsmanship with avant-garde design, she makes pieces—many of them one-of-a-kind—that are sophisticated with a playful edge.
