I’m such a fan of Bondeye Jewelry! Thank goodness for social media because that’s how I came across Jess Klein’s fabulous line some time ago.
Jess is a New York-based jewelry designer but studied in Sydney in 2013-14. She’d been designing more trend/costume jewelry back then, all gold plated. At the time she was in college and felt there weren’t many places online to shop more affordable trend based jewelry. In 2016-17 and over the past year and a half, she rebranded and relaunched her current Bondeye collection which is all 14K gold with diamonds and various stones such as white and black topaz.
“Bondeye is born of a personal passion for jewelry. Ever since I can remember, jewelry has been a passion of mine ; whether it was looking at pieces through windows on the streets of New York City, making my own in my basement, or giving my opinion on the pieces my friends and family chose to wear. I have always felt jewelry could be the staple of every look and I always vocalized my visions and opinions.
I started designing jewelry while I was living in Sydney, Australia, a place where I was able to truly develop and harvest my enthusiasm for jewelry design. Inspired by the different culture that I was immersed in, I began sketching new designs — combinations of the jewelry I was seeing and the jewelry that I wanted to see.” explains Jess.
Bondeye Jewelry is made up of two collections. These collections represent different sides of Jessica and her style and are designed to appeal to all women, for any occasion and I can tell you…both collections personally appeal to me!
Simple, elemental elegance. 14K yellow and rose gold. Diamonds, Sapphires and Howlite stone. Designed for refined punctuation, with a single pave band or signet pinky ring. Or to be layered across all ten fingers to show your individual personal style.
Stand-alone pieces, designed to make a statement. Precious stones make a play on color, assembled in unique, individual forms. A confident expression of individuality, character and unique identity.
Jess truly believes the jewelry you wear can express yourself on any given day and there are no restrictions to that. Which totally makes sense to me
Both collections are meant to be worn all together, across every finger, every piercing, and each hand – the endless possibilities for personalization and individuality. You create your own style by wearing jewelry you love. Myself it depends on my mood of the day or occasions. I just go with the flow of the day and I believe Bondeye Jewelry represents this part very well.
Jess on her personal way of wearing jewelry: “My ears never match, my hands are never just one color of gold or one kind of stone and my arms are never bare. I use jewelry as my way to capture and express my mood, my style, and my energy on any given day. My styles are meant to be mixed, matched and layered with each other, or worn as individual statements of your own natural beauty.
My vision was to create collections you want to own in their entirety and ones that allow you to show who you are and where you are going.”
