Unisex effects

Jewelers’ latest collections can be worn by both men and women.

By Rachael Taylor

Gender identity is a hot topic right now, with stars such as Orange Is the New Black’s Asia Kate Dillon and Ruby Rose refusing to identify as male or female, instead describing themselves as non-binary or gender-fluid. This blurring of traditional male-female definitions has hit jewelry, with designers including Fernando Jorge, Stephen Webster and Ara Vartanian shooting campaigns that star both men and women wearing their designs. Also influencing this trend is a rise in men shopping for increasingly adventurous jewels, with unisex collections allowing brands to hedge their bets.
