Crystals accent the oversized bow on this Alexis Bittar cuff. Matte rhodium plate / 10k gold plate. Bittar's insatiable thirst for innovation drives him to search the world for unique materials. All of the stones found in Bittar's collections are custom cut and set in his custom designed metalwork, which provide the foundations for his creations. The punk youth and urban thread resonates throughout Bittar's collections-often layering juxtaposing eras, such as 1980s and sculptural deco imagery.
Bittar's diverse aesthetic and unique point of view enables him to remain at the cutting edge of culture, design, and craftsmanship while abiding by his core beliefs of quality and innovation. Bittar's diverse celebrity following further reflects the designer's reach. He continues to change the world's perception of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, cuffs, and rings by celebrating wearable art. With his designs, Bittar lauds individualism, embracing imperfections, and rejecting the mundane and ordinary.
The care that goes into creating every necklace, bracelet, ring, and earring reflects our belief that the pieces are to be viewed as collectible, modern heirlooms that will stand the test of time and trends. While undeniably luxurious, with many designs featuring precious metals and semi-precious stones, we feel our work should be accessible, unique and attainable. Luxury in this case is in the design details, the quality of materials, and ultimately the way the pieces are cherished and worn.
