Béton, is a new unisex collection from the Tom Pigeon Studio. Popularised by Le Corbusier, the term Béton originates from the French, Béton Brut, or Raw Concrete and this hand-crafted solid silver jewellery is influenced by the strong lines, hidden angles and sharp shadows of Brutalist concrete architecture.
The minimal design focuses on the material qualities of the silver, creating simple, understated pieces that can be worn everyday and treasured forever. This bangle is a super-minimal band of solid silver with gently curved ends, which catches and reflects the light as it meets the curved silver surface.
The Béton collection features seven pieces designed to be mixed and matched and includes Point, Beam and Apex earrings, a necklace, cufflinks, a ring and a bangle.
Each piece is hand finished at Tom Pigeon HQ in Fife to create a beautiful flat matt finish and is supplied in a black box with white foil emboss and black foam inner.
