Alessandro Michele is spotlighting the next-generation of jewellery designers with Gucci Vault
By Bailey Slater | Art | 24 November 2021

Gucci’s online concept store and designer platform, Gucci Vault, has turned its spotlight onto the ultra-glamorous movers and makers who comprise the future of jewellery design.

Since launching in September, this treasure trove of beautiful things has hosted vintage get-ups, Emperor-owned ephemera, pieces from Brit-designers like Stefan Cooke and Priya Ahluwalia and even their own archival wonders in a display curated by creative director Alessandro Michele. Now, the platform is honing in on twelve heart-stopping jewellers just in time for the festive season – talk about a godsend.

Of the eclectic mix of goldsmiths and Hatton Lab frequenters are Seb Brown and Bleue Burnham with their asteroid-like gemstones, Georgina Kemball and her folkloric metal goblins and Charlotte Chesnais, whose delicate bands and rings twirl around the body like veins comprised solely of shimmering gold. 

The likes of Martine Ali, Rebekah Kosonen Bide, Fraser Hamilton, Elie Top and Castro Smith are also included in this blinged-out mix, each taking care to reference the beauty of the natural world, the romance of garden flowers, or even the sensation of touch in all of their glamorous works.

To mark the occasion, Gucci will also be releasing its fourth drop of refurbished vintage pieces, also hand-picked by Michele, having been restored, reconditioned and individually numbered for their homes.
