Durable, light-weight and impossibly scatch-resistant, ceramic is the new 'it' material to look at when it comes to jewellery. 

Not to be confused with pottery ceramic, the ceramic heavily explored in the jewellery industry today is made of titanium carbide, a material very much resemblant of tungsten carbide. Titanium carbide's other uses include weaponry and aerospace so you can be assured that it will last and look as new as when you first got them even after considerable wear and tear. Immensely durable, incredibly light-weight and impossibly scatch-resistant, it is no wonder why the watch-making industry has also favourited this new invincible steel.

These jewellery pieces from Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Bulgari combine the beauty and brilliance of the most sparkling diamonds with the hardiness of ceramic for the best of design and indestructibility.

 

Bulgari B.ZERO1 Ceramic Earrings

Informal and elegant at the same time, the B.ZERO1 collection is a reinterpretation of the Tubogas jewels, with two lateral rims framing each piece and double logos engraved onto them. The spirals, with their suggestion of movement, give the objects a peculiarity that makes them unique. Black or white ceramic can be mounted with white, yellow or rose gold for pieces that contain all the key elements of the Bulgari style.


Chanel Ultra Ceramic Pendant

Chanel sandwiches white ceramic between 18k white gold and diamonds for a simple and demure piece that is outstanding and eye-catching in its own subtle way. Unfussy and timeless in design, this is a piece that can be handed down and worn for generations so perhaps making it with ceramic is a brilliant idea for its resilience.

Gucci Icon Ceramic Rings

For a walk off the demure side, Gucci's Icon rings will inject character and attitude to any outfit with its unconventional make and studs. Smooth to the touch and almost non-existent when worn on the finger because of its light weight, they are ideal for a long day out as you can go about your day without having to worry about the rings getting scratched or wedging uncomfortably in between your fingers.

Louis Vuitton Large Clous Ring

The Clous theme on this ring references the nails traditionally used on Louis Vuitton trunks. On this design, the sharp contrast of colours and materials is pays homage to that very inspiration. Combining ceramic with platinum and a single diamond, this Large Clous is suited for both men and women with its modern, androgynous design. 

 


Cartier Trinity de Cartier Black and White Bangle

The original Trinity de Cartier in pink yellow and white gold was representative of love, fidelity and friendship. The new updated version in black and white ceramic and diamonds is a bolder but equally pure nod to love. Modern, sleek and edgy, the Trinity design is also now available to be adorned with coloured gemstones or pearls.
