Minimalism is a set of ideas about visual decoration and interaction with objects. Key takeaways are simplicity and a focus on form and interaction with the environment rather than decoration. Tether has a thing for minimalist design and the idea that a strong form lacking decoration can hold space and be a showpiece regardless of size.
Jewelry can be small or large and still be minimalist in concept, so you'll see pieces here that are among both our slimmest and largest clickers and our smallest and largest gold ends. Minimalist forms convey sophistication through simplicity and highlight shadow, light play, and interaction with the body.
A customer's style may dictate minimalist pieces, and they are also fantastic options to complement existing jewelry and accent space in complex ear projects. We love to see our Partner Studio and retail client creativity in mixing ends and clicker stacking!
A constant heartbeat of minimalist design runs through all of our collections. We've gathered together some of our favorite pieces that exemplify this style.
14K SOLID GOLD THREADLESS
The ALPHA 01 threadless end has a broad high polish domed face surrounded by subtle texture. This minimal mirror-like piece changes constantly as it reflects the surroundings.
Our Hypnos ring features a diamond centerpiece of peaks and valleys, creating mountains of light play with movement.
The Morpheus ring features angular lines and areas of recessed triangles with contrasting textures.
The Una Chain Cuff is a no-piercings-needed decorative ear cuff with simple chain dangles.
The Empire Bolo Tie Necklace is our minimalist take on a classic accessory, with a high-polish textured triangular detail grasping a simple chain.
OFTEN MINIMAL, ALWAYS INSPIRED
As a company inspired in part by architecture and design movements, minimalism will always have a place in our offerings. It's not our sole design love, though. Stay tuned for a post about our "maximalist" offerings; the unsubtle designs full of detail and texture that demand attention from every angle.
