Daniel Chiquet

I absolutely hate to stereotype, but one look at these rings and I knew the designer had to be a man. Swiss jeweller Daniel Chiquet uses the principles of tectonics, tension and tasselation to design pieces you can take apart and reconstruct. But it's not the mechanical nature of these rings that gave him away; beyond that, there's just something so masculine about the designs, even though I've seen plenty of women create sharp, angular, geometric rings. It must be the jewellery equivalent of the Axe effect, minus the nausea.
