Geometric structures, clean lines, ornate details, and raw materials: it’s no surprise that timeless architectural design has sparked the imagination of many contemporary jewelry designers. Inspired by the world built around us, many designers pay homage to architectural pioneers by applying the same precision, balance, functionality, and beauty to their expertly crafted accessories. Whether you’re into classical shapes, Art Deco motifs, or modernist minimalism, we’ve collected a range of architectural jewelry to suit everyone’s aesthetic.
Among our treasure-trove list you’ll find a Bauhaus-inspired pendant, a brutalist-style cuff made from brass, and even a pair of earrings inspired by an ancient Greek theatre. There’s also an adorable “tiny Amsterdam house” pendant, and an array of cityscape rings and bracelets.
