WHAT THEY ARE ALL ABOUT
Danish-born jeweler Maria Black fell in love with her first pair of earrings at age 10. Fast-forward to her time trained as a goldsmith, and has since founded Maria Black Jewellery. Describing her aesthetic as “the love child between London's rebel spirit” and clean Scandinavian design, every piece is intended to be interchangeable – wear yours stacked, solo or mismatched for a unique look each time.
WHY WE CARRY THEM
“I’m more complicated than one style. Everyone is. We should embrace the notion of dressing up and experimenting a bit more. This also translates into my designs. I’m a masculine girl one day, a feminine dude the next, but I’m still me. My personality translates into the brand Maria Black, so it has all of that too. Our identity as a brand is diverse and we don’t like being put in a box. Boxes are limited to six walls and no blue skies - where is the fun in that? We are feminine, masculine, silly and classic at the same time because we are complicated. We all are.” -MB
This brand possesses the coolest quality of tailoring to any #presbabe out there and his or her own individual style - and whether they’ll be taking this line from day to night, to the beach, or into the nightlife. It’s always the perfect fit.
The manifestation behind each Maria Black collection is presented with inspirational transparency. Reminiscing on exploring grandma’s jewelry box, concrete playgrounds, roller coaster fascinations, personal heroes, and growing pains have led to this designer’s refined, fun, minimalist, “mix-and-match”, urban collections. The choice use of gold and diamond materials is a reflection of these distinctive memories:
“Gold is warmth, it is the sun, it is the colour of the ring your grandmother wore. It is so decadent, enduring, it is a statement and, for better and worse, it has been mankind's favourite currency since the crack of dawn. The white diamond is colder by contrast, but it also makes you sit up straight - it’s the stone that makes you press your nose firmly against the store window to get a closer look.” -MB
