At this time of stress, isolation and uncertainly, taking time to make things together is more important than ever. Some people might find themselves feeling disconnected and lonely, while others will do well with staying (virtually) connected but feel stripped of creative energy and the ability to generate new ideas nonetheless.

The jewelers of Alexander McQueen know it like anyone else. For their Spring/Summer 2020 jewelry collection, they took the way our lives in contemporary society are all entwined in intricate, spontaneous ways and translated those connections into jewelry. “I love the idea of people having the time to make things together, the time to meet and talk together, shared Sarah Burton, McQueen’s creative director. “The time to reconnect with the world.”

The result? A robust collection of double-wire antique gold chokers and bangles, pendants and oversized droplet charms, woven chokers and rings along with the similarly woven triple bangle bracelet — all available with an antique gold or silver metal finish.

Sealing the deal is the Rose Seal family, inspired by the Victorian wheel seal used to seal letters with wax, each with its own special significance. The whee itself resembles a Tudor Rose with petal-like details and features a McQueen seal engraved and in low relief at its very center. The seal can be used as a genuine wax signet — offering an excuse to send an old-fashioned wax-sealed letter to someone you love and care about.
