The Clamp Series of customizable rings by Drilling Lab translates factory aesthetic into fashion accessory! The designs are produced in a traditional Taiwan factory and stay true to the construction technique of the original hardware. The only difference is 3 fashionable finishes in matte black, gold, and silver. In two distinct designs, one with a visible screw and one without, you can mix, match, and size to your liking!

Bling Love: LINEA Collection, WIN Jewelry Worth$150!

Bling Love: LINEA Collection, WIN Jewelry Worth$150!

Say Aye: all those who love and get inspired by the iconic architecture in the Bay area and beyond; AYE! Taking her inspiration from shapes and engineering concepts from San Francisco’s diverse urban landscape, designer Vanessa Gade is launching a whole new jewelry collection titled LINEA. Past collections have been inspired by art deco architecture, ikebana, suspension bridges and criss-crossing power lines & I will not be surprised to find a hint of the Golden Gate Bridge, Sutro Tower and the SFMOMA, in some of these new pieces.

Timed Ring

Timed Ring

The Ring Clock is a simple approach to marry two of the biggest and much needed accessories that we use. Yes, we wear rings and we wear watches, and it’s not the first time that the two have been integrated. What I really like about the Ring Clock is that it is designed simple, with the clock aspect integrated into the ring’s band. The ring rotates as time goes by, and thus showing the current time.

Star Wars Fans - I Give You X-Rings

Star Wars Fans – I Give You X-Rings

One of my favorite companies Black Badger Advanced Composites just released another amazing set of rings, this time inspired by the Star Wars universe. Appropriately called the X-Rings, each one is graphic in appearance and handcrafted from DuPont Corian. There’s more though – they GLOW! If you’re a Star Wars fan from the original trilogy, it may be time to put away the toy X-Wing and upgrade to an X-Ring. REAL DOPENESS!

Just a Lil' Bling Bling!

Just a Lil’ Bling Bling!

The Invert collection of concept jewelry takes subtlety to a whole new level! The series, which includes earrings, wrist band, necklace and rings was designed with the idea that the user should wear the jewelry for themselves rather than for other people to see. The designs leave the gem stone almost totally unexposed, keeping the rock closer to the wearer and giving others who see it just a glimpse of the bling underneath.

Sounds Good to Me

Sounds Good to Me

SoundsGood is a hearing aid for women specifically designed to look like a classy earring. The device works in a very interesting way; depending upon the voice pitch of the speaker the earring displays graphic sound waves in colored signals. Different colors intuitively indicate if you are speaking too shrill, soft or appropriately for the user. I love the way technology is woven into an everyday object, so that the lady using the device is comfortable wearing the aid.

Atomic Number 22

Atomic Number 22

There’s something delicate about the word “bracelet” – that is, until you see the Armadillo: 161, the latest from bold jewelry maker RogueDZN. Named after its 161 parts, the Armadillo is composed entirely of G5 aerospace grade titanium- the same super strong material used to build spacecraft, naval ships, and armor plating. Using the same software used to create the USA’s F22 joint strike fighter, each curve is obsessively perfected in 3D space, a feat impossible to achieve by hand.

Organic Jewelry

Organic Jewelry

Concept X is a conceptual bracelet designed to create jewelry that mixes sensual organic forms with the strength of industrial, almost medical silhouettes. Its curvilinear body and undulating elements form a cincture-like cast – as if it naturally evolved there. The designers believe the evolutionary organic image fits well into modern life. They describe their project as “the re-definition of the spatial order of  jewelry”.

Bird of Limb Enhancement

Bird of Limb Enhancement

Let’s take a dip for a moment into the world of fashion in a very general way. We don’t often cover fashionable items here on Yanko Design because more often than not industrial design ends up being about as far from the clothing and decoration world as it gets. On the other hand, every once in a while something spectacular comes along and we just can’t help ourselves.

The Tiniest Tron

The Tiniest Tron

So you like strips of bright light aside blackness, greenness, or grayness, yes? You must love the heck out of this Tron: Legacy wave of items coming out as of late! I know I love it. Not because all of them are good (excluding the one I’m about to show you, of course,) but because they’ve got that one singled-out limit that ties them all together. Let’s have a group show! Someday maybe. Now check this little thing out – it’s a Tron Ring!

Aerospace Grade Titanium Ring

Aerospace Grade Titanium Ring

This is a ring of metal like you’ve never seen before. It’s made of six modular pieces of military spec G5 aerospace grade titanium. It’s precision cut by a 5-axis state-of-the-art machine never before used for fine jewelry. Each of the little bits is off-axis bolted to the next – the process from cut to bolt takes 10 hours each. The materials and the process guarantee the ring will be around for centuries. Born of the most wild and fine-quality elite thinking environment.

Behold the imperfect human body. The following is part of a collection of jewelry called “Ode to Imperfection” by Christiaan Lebens. This collection takes the lost art of appreciating the beauty of the human body, especially the aging and weathering of the skin, and turns it into fine and lovely jewelry.
