Bean to Bar Chocolate
Based in London's Hatton Garden, Matthew Calvin’s signature style is a celebration of simplicity and precision.
Matthew began designing jewellery in 2012, taking classes around Europe where he learnt a variety of different techniques and practices. The real breakthroughs came at home in Matthew’s East London studio, where the brand Matthew Calvin started to take form.
Creating jewellery for family, friends and husband Joseph, Matthew perfected his craft, experimenting with tools, materials and finishes. In 2013 he then set to work designing the first ranges, and the brand was born.
Although the journey began as Matthew’s solo venture, the Matthew Calvin team soon began to grow and is now a team of 5. Matthew puts much of the brand’s success down to people around him – with a small and growing team, Matthew has found individuals that are as passionate about style and jewellery as he is.
Matthew Calvin has now become synonymous for contemporary and minimal jewellery design. The jewellery has been featured in publications such as Stylist, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Paper Magazine, and The Independent, who say that Matthew Calvin Jewellery is "A brand that everyone should know about… minimalist and ultra-modern, often providing a unique take on classic designs."
The USTUDIO team especially like the Dappled Gold Vermeil Stud earrings, presented in a stylish glass vial with cork stopper. A perfect 'nugget' of gold which can be worn alone but is still small enough to wear as a second or third earring. It has a gorgeous ‘dappled’ effect from the uneven texture which adds interest to an everyday staple.
These earrings go beautifully with the Hand Carved Antigua Gold Vermeil Textured Pendant. Reminiscent of antique and molten coins, it's perfect for layering or wearing as a simple statement piece.
Anyone that is a fan of minimalist jewellery that makes a statement should love Matthew Calvin Jewellery.
