Sunday Report Card: Modern Magic at Cyril Jewelry

Lily Stewart in the Orbital Drops and Satellite ring in Russh Magazine.

Today’s jewelry report card is about discovering something new. We’ve chosen this artist’s jewelry account to follow for a few reasons. There is something a little entrancing, almost enchanting about the work of New York based jewelry designer Leila Du Mond of Cyril Studio.  Launched in 2017, it is a new brand, with tons of potential! The pieces are made in the city by hand and retain a minimal but magic style. The crystals she uses are mounted in 14k or sterling,and bounce light beautifully of the human form. There is a sensuality about how they are made and worn, yet the are beautifully modern.  The crystals remind me of antique pools of light pieces in theory, but her application of them is so different and well molded.

Firstly, her construction of the “crystals” seems to be lighter and uniquely mounted. Her hand carved examples seem almost molded to the sculptural fittings that surround them.  Read about her process in a detailed an interesting interview here.  She’s one to watch and you can do that from her instagram account where she posts some of her new pieces and one of a kind creations.  Let’s see where her investigation into light takes us!

Hannan has shot for us an array of street style stars, editors, and models as well as just the best looks out there.  She works every year with Essence and us (we are honored). The detailed eye she has, captures so many examples of color, jewelry, bags, and shoes that it makes a heart skip a beat. Street style is an arena where the creativity should shine through, and as fashion week changes in many ways- this art does as well. We hope to see more unique looks next season, but for now let’s turn our eye to her images. We have so many favorite looks here, why don’t you tell us yours!
