Jewelry, like clothing, has always reflected changes in culture and society. The best design creations, modern and relevant, decades later will also become old, antique things that reflect our time.
The fashion of recent years has firmly introduced the popularity of men’s jewelry for all ages and segments of the population. Men began to value their jewelry, making special demands on their design qualities. Now a piece of jewelry that belongs to a man has a special function. This is not just a decoration. The material and artistic performance of the object emphasize the status, taste and belonging to a particular social category of its owner. The jewelry market began to actively search for new design trends for men.
About the Hoxton brand
London-based jewelry company Hoxton, with its first collection in 2009, has rapidly established itself as a manufacturer of first-class quality and artistic products. Over the next two years, participation in the world’s leading trade events brought the company recognition, fame and cooperation from famous jewelry distributors:
- 2010 International Jewelery Show in London (IJL);
- 2011 Thailand Jewelry Fair (Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair);
- in the same year, the Swiss jewelery and watch fair (Baselworld).
The aesthetics of sterling silver men’s jewelry immediately caught the attention of the international jewelry industry and qualified buyers. The Hoxton design was described by the press as “gentlemanly for a prestigious, discerning man with good taste.” Since then, the product, having received the premium category, is offered by the best distributors and jewelry houses in the UK.
This is a chain of the most prestigious stores of the old London firm Leonard Dews, where only exclusive products of the best brands are sold. The leader of the jewelry business in the country is Chisholm Hunter. More democratic, with an impeccable reputation, the Hugh Rice brand with eleven stores in the best shopping locations throughout England. One of the largest and most respected global jewelry distributors IBB LONDON, other distributors in England and abroad. Despite the affordable price of Hoxton silver men’s jewelry, Hoxton items remain an exclusive and exquisite product.
What makes the products of this company, not made of platinum, gold and precious stones, so special?
Their design is truly masculine, laconic, but at the same time elegant and uncommon. It combines classics, history and modernity. The indigenous people of the British capital understand the artistic design of the Hoxton jewelry. The brand borrowed its name from the name of the old London district of Hoxton (from the Anglo-Saxon “fortified building”), once part of an ancient parish.
Hoxton has successfully implemented a complex design idea: it has combined the historical essence of the oldest London district and modern trends in jewelry art. Some of the company’s products are associated with the medieval or industrial past of Hoxton. The workmanship and shape of other decorations resembles the old walls of brick houses and the stonework of the pavements of the area. The company’s logo, shaped like a medieval coat of arms, speaks of the Tudor era.
Now the assortment of the company consists of eleven sets of different shapes and textures.
Each includes from one to several types of rings and bracelets, one or two pairs of cufflinks, a chain with a pendant or a neck cross. Some of the kits contain, in the same style, a key ring and a money clip. In the extensive collection of cufflinks, you can find a pair that is not included in the sets.
The highly reflective properties of white silver, combined with black, dominate Hoxton’s products. The Black, Bold collections, some items from Herringbone and Twist are delicately finished in the most delicate black leather. A thin line of black sapphires lends a special nobility to the Black Sapphire group. Delicate jewelery from the Stone collection includes black artificial cubic zirconia, so-called CZ (Cubic Zirconia) stones, which have an amazing play of light and radiance.
Simple, almost strict forms of jewelry become refined thanks to an interesting relief texture, sometimes highlighted in black, in the Stripe, Pyramid, Wild, Brick, Herringbone, Bamboo collections. All items are discreet, in a restrained graceful manner, made in such a way that, without focusing on themselves, emphasize and complement the image of an elegant gentleman. Therefore, Hoxton products are often preferred by business men.
How long will Hoxton’s success and popularity last? Will the firm remain committed to the classics or will it embody progressive ideas? Will it be able to maintain a balance of elegant moderation in design and original imagination? Time will show. Only one thing is clear: jewelry from Hoxton will not go unnoticed in the history of jewelry art.
