As the Nordic fashion-scene is growing and becoming more and more interesting for the international market, it is time for the world to notice the amazing Nordic jewelry designers as well. The Nordic style is famous for being ultra minimalistic, clean and with sober colours such as black, grey, white and maybe with navy-blue. The raw and cold feeling is what binds all Nordic designers together, and it’s only natural to find it in jewelry too. These 10 extremely iconic, modern and interesting designers are of course well fitted with the darkness up north, and will all accompany a minimalistic wardrobe perfectly. But there´s two distinct paths to take in your choice of jewelry: the ones inspired by Nordic folklores and fairytales, or the ones inspired by clean lines and strict concepts. The Italian Eye Magazine will present you with the best from both.

The Danish wonder Bjørg Nordli-Mathisen has bewitched the world with her jewelry for more than 10 years. Each season she is evolving like an ever-changing butterfly.

Her pieces do not apologize or hide, but become one with the bearer and stand to be a constant companion for many years to come.

Another designer that explores the relationship between the body of the bearer and the jewelry is the Swedish Cornelia Webb. Looking at her designs it’s easy to see her background as a medical student; the fascination and closeness she uses to look at each part of the body can only be described as a love-story.

Whatever limb is concerned, her designs look like the last piece of the puzzle to make it whole – like a body part you didn’t know you were missing. Her jewels aren’t meant to be carried on the body, but to become part of it.

Sägen is a Swedish brand that is quite different from anything else, yet still speaks to the style and feel of the Nordic past. Elin Sigrén mixes reused and damaged porcelain with vintage-details and very modern cuts.

The swedes may be leading the fashion-game, but when it comes to jewelry the Danish are completely outstanding. The brand Line & Jo, for example, has brought another dimension to minimalism. Their jewels look everything but simple!

Accompanying a white t-shirt or a grey cardigan, these pieces look edgy and fierce. When you can imagine an old Dutch woman wearing a ring like this, and a robot from the 3000th century just as well, then you know something special has happened. The design is like from another era; a mix with past fascination for shiny materials and a future that lacks the understanding of unnecessary ornaments. If you sport more than one piercings, you simply must start collecting their ear-pieces. Your jewelry-game will never be the same.

If you feel fascinated by Line & Jo, but lack the necessary funding, you would be wise to investigate in Maanesten asap. This Danish brand keeps to the same sophisticated and effortless style, but has not yet risen to the same prices.

Maanesten is for the woman who doesn’t wish to color-coordinate or worries about how she looks before she goes out the door. The Maanesten-woman could put on her jewelry-collection in the dark and still look completely thought out and put together. These designs work with everything and everyone.

With the same undoubtable and head-strong style, Maria Black brings another level of minimalism and shine. Her pieces aren’t as toned down and simple as the previous ones, but demands attention with high-beamed metal and bigger volumes.

The designs would fit perfectly in the life of a minimalistic astronaut, sailing the starry sea in search of the effortless life. Maria Black’s jewelry shares a close resemblance to the designs of a space ship, with sterile lines almost creating optical illusions.

A humoristic hiatus, a simple riddle left for the body to solve.

Isabel Lennse’s designs aren’t too elaborated; they’re an ironic idea, a joke that only the cool ones can carry. These designs might not be much by themselves, but one of her necklaces in the frame of a crisp white shirt will be divine.

We’ll conclude this toned-down orchestra with a more unknown player: Sandbergs of Sweden. This brand keeps its designs simple and elegant, but has a more organic and raw touch than the others. These rings should be every girls secret dream, something to gaze on with adoring eyes. Their style is sweet and classic, yet with a handmade-touch that makes it feel unique. A living-thing more than just jewelry.
